This dishcloth is only 28 stiches wide (I started with a chain 29)
Easy Crocheted Dishcloth
By Cheri Mancini

This makes a loose, thinner dishcloth than any of the worsted weight patterns I've seen on the Internet.  I personally like a thinner dishcloth.  It's a stretchy dishcloth that wrings out easily.

Worsted weight cotton yarn
Size H crochet hook

Chain 29 (or any odd number of chains to achieve the desired width for your dishcloth)

Row 1: Sc in second chain from hook and in each chain across.  Chain 1, turn. (28 sc)

Row 2: Sc in back loop of 1st sc.  Sc in front loop of next sc. *Sc in back loop of next sc, sc in front loop of next sc.  Repeat from * across row.  Chain 1, turn.

Repeat row 2 for pattern.  Continue crocheting the pattern until you reach the length that you want your dishcloth to be.

When the dishcloth is as long as you want it: Crochet the last row in sc, through both loops of prevous row of sc.

Finish off and hide ends.
