Seashell Dishcloth | Free Crochet Pattern
This crocheted dishcloth is the next pattern in my Spring Dishcloth Collection! It seems a bit too pretty to use...but nevermind that! It is a joy to make, and a pleasure to use.
Approximately 32 grams/65 yards of any cotton yarn (sample uses WeCrochet Dishie in Silver)
Size H (5.5mm) crochet hook
Yarn Needle to weave in ends
Ruler to check gauge if desired
It is not necessary to achieve a certain gauge for this project, but if you want the same dimensions as the sample I suggest checking.
14 double crochet stitches by 6 rows = 4 inches in double crochet worked flat
sc: single crochet
dc: double crochet
f/o: finish off
*...*: repeat the designated number of times

The ch 3 at the beginning of each row counts as a double crochet stitch. It will allow the edges to remain nice and straight.
When worked to pattern, your dishcloth will measure approximately 7 ½ inches wide by 7 ½ inches tall.
A full shell consists of 5 dc sts, and a half shell consists of 3 dc sts and is used on the edges.
Row 1: working into the fourth ch from the hook, dc 2, *sk 2 ch sts, sc into the next ch, sk 2 ch sts, work 5 dc sts into the next ch* until 6 ch sts remain, sk 2 ch sts, sc into the next ch, sk 2 ch sts, 3 dc sts in the last ch.
Row 2: ch 1 and turn. sc into first st, *sk 2 sts, dc 5 into next st, sk 2 sts, sc into the next st* until 6 sts remain, sk 2 sts, dc 5 into next st, sk 2 sts, sc in last st. ch 3 and turn.
Row 3: ch 3 and turn. dc two into first st, *sk 2 sts, sc in next st, sk 2 sts, dc 5 into next st* until 6 sts remain, sk 2 sts, sc in next st, sk 2 sts, dc three in last st.
Rows 4-15: repeat rows 2 and 3
If you would like to make your dishcloth shorter/longer, simply repeat rows 2 and 3 less/more times.
f/o, weave in your ends, and enjoy!
