This simple pattern is a regular at my house. I just can’t find a store-bought dishcloth that works as well, so these are my standard. I have tried many different patterns, always returning to these because they just seem to be the best shape and size.
I use these with white flour-sack towels, so I always match no matter what color I choose! (I have a thing for needing to match. My husband tells me that it is my “inner Sheldon” coming out. Sheldon is the totally OCD guy on the Big Bang Theory)
Small amounts of 100% cotton yarn (I use Lily Sugar & Cream)
Row 1 – ch 21, hdc in 3rd ch from hook and in each ch across.
Row 2 – ch 2, turn, hcd in each hdc across.
Row 3 – 13 – Repeat row 2
Round 1 – ch 2, 2 hdc in same stitch (corner), then hdc 18 evenly spaced across the ends of the row to the next corner, 3 hdc in corner, hdc in each across to next corner, 3 hdc in corner, hdc 18 evenly again, 3 hdc in corner, and hdc in each across, slip stitch in top of first hdc of round.
Round 2 – ch 1, turn and sc in each around, putting 3 sc in center of each corner, slip stitch together and tie off, weave in end.
