FREE PATTERN - Textured Dischcloth

I have been in need for some new dishcloths again, but didn't want to just do any old pattern. I wasn't finding anything I really wanted to make. I wanted it to be solid to work as a potholder if I needed too, but I wanted something with some texture too.

This is what I came up with:




What you need:
  • H hook
  • Cotton yarn (about 1.5 oz)
Abbreviations:
  • ST = Stitch
  • SLST = Slip Stitch
  • CH = Chain
  • SC = Single Crochet
  • DC = Double Crochet
  • V-ST = (DC, CH 1, DC) in one ST
Pattern:

Row 1:     CH 28. SC in 2nd CH from hook.*CH 1. Skip 1 ST. SC in next ST.* Repeat from * to * across.

Row 2:     CH 1, turn. SC in 1st SC. SC in CH-1 space. *V-ST in next CH-1 space. SC in next CH-1 space.* Repeat from * to * across. SC in last SC.

Row 3:     CH 1, turn. SC in 2 SC. *CH 1. Skip DC. SC in CH-1 space. CH 1. Skip DC. SC in SC.* Repeat from * to * across. SC in last SC.

Row 4:     CH 1, turn. SC in 2 SC. *Skip 1 ST. V-ST in SC. Skip 1 ST. SC in SC.* Repeat from * to * across. SC in last SC.

Rows 5-21:     Repeat row 3 & 4, ending with row 3.

Round 1:     CH 1, turn. SC in 1st SC. SC in each CH-1 space and SC across. 2 SC in last ST of row. Work 1 SC into the side of each row. 2 SC in the side of the last row. SC in the base of each CH across. 2 SC in the base of the last CH. Work 1 SC into the side of each row. Join w/ SLST to the 1st SC.

Round 2:     CH 1, turn. 2 SC in 1st ST. SC in each ST across. 2 SC in each of the 2 corner STs. SC in each ST across. 2 SC in each of the 2 corner STs. SC in each ST across. CH 12. SC in next ST and each across. 2 SC in last ST. Join w/ SLST to the 1st SC.

Round 3:     CH 1, turn. 2 SC in 1st ST. SC in each ST across. SC 18 in CH-12 space. SC in next SC and each across. 2 SC in each of the 2 corner STs. SC in each ST across. 2 SC in each of the 2 corner STs. 2 SC in last ST. Join w/ SLST to the 1st SC.

Fasten off. Weave in ends.
