Five Textured Dishcloths

Five Textured Dishcloths

by Priscilla Hewitt ©2000

Please read my terms of use

All of these dishcloths are crocheted with a size H hook in worsted weight

cotton yarn and are approximately 8 1/2” square. If you'd like a larger

dishcloth, use a larger hook.

----------------------------------------

Directions are included for converting the All-Crochet Towel & Topper

pattern to match each of the dishcloths.

----------------------------------------

To make any of these dishcloths into a matching potholder, crochet two of

the dishcloths with a size F or G hook, then sc together with wrong sides

facing, adding a (ch 15, sl st in the first ch) to any corner for a hanging

loop.

-----------------------------------------

I add a row of sl sts at the end of each dishcloth to keep the dishcloth from

stretching when wet. You can eliminate this, if desired. Also, these

dishcloths are not edged...you can edge with a round of sc, if you prefer.
