Pattern Notes

  • Find the yarn featured in this pattern here.

  • This dishcloth is worked flat, so be sure to turn your work after each row.

  • When finished, this dishcloth measures 8 inches square.

  • If you’d like to modify the size of your dishcloth, simply chain any multiple of three and work Row 2 until your dishcloth is square.


Ch 30

Row 1

[hdc, dc] in the second ch from the hook, *sk 2 sts, [sc, hdc, dc] in the next st* until one st rem, sc in the last st.

Rows 2-19

ch 1 and turn. [hdc, dc] in the first st, *sk 2 sts, [sc, hdc, dc] in the next st* until two sts rem, sk the next st, sc in the last st. (30 sts)

After completing Row 19 (or after your dishcloth is square), continue to Border Instructions


Continuing from the last row, sc evenly around the entire dishcloth. I recommend aiming to place the same amount of sts on ea side and 3 sts in ea corner.


Pull through the last st, cut yarn, and weave in any ends.

Dishcloths aren’t typically in need of blocking, but feel free to do so. If you chose a 100% cotton yarn, I recommend simply washing these dishcloths in the washer and dryer just like clothes. They will last for years to come!
