Pattern - Diagonal Dishcloth


Here is the pattern for the striped diagonal dishcloths that were shared in the post about the "Peachy/Green" kitchen set. The dishcloth in this picture was crocheted without changing colors. If you wanted stripes, you would just change colors at the end of a row. I am loving this pattern!  It is very quick and easy. I can make a set in no time at all.

Diagonal Dishcloth
medium weight cotton yarn
size “H” crochet hook

Row 1: Ch 4, (dc, ch 2, 2 dc) in fourth chain from the hook. (First 3 skipped chains count as the first dc). Row 2: Ch 3, turn. (ch-3 counts as the first dc in this and subsequent rows.) Dc in next dc, (2 dc, ch 2, 2 dc) in next ch-2 space, dc in next two dc. Row 3: Ch 3, turn. Dc in next dc and in each dc across to next ch-2 space. (2 dc, ch 2, 2 dc) in corner space. Dc in each dc across. Row 4-12: (or until desired size is reached) Repeat row 3. Finish off and weave in ends.

Edging: Cast on in top corner. 3 sc in corner space. (Sc, ch 2 dc) around post at the end of each row across the side. (Sc, ch 2, dc) around post at corner. (Skip next dc, sc, ch 2, dc in next dc) evenly around next 2 sides. (Sc, ch 2, dc) around posts across last side. Slip stitch in sc at beginning of round.

    1. Susie, edging directions are always the hardest for me to write. I'm sorry the directions seem confusing. The top corner refers to the chain 2 space in Row 1. The "post" refers to the whole dc stitch that appears at the beginning and end of each row. You should put the (sc, ch2, dc) group of stitches around the whole dc stitch at the end of each row across the side. The corner post refers to the last (or the first) whole dc stitch on the last (bottom) row of the cloth. The "next two sides" refers to the bottom two sides that form the diagonal edges at the bottom. These are the sides that you will put the [skip next dc, (sc, ch2, dc in next dc)] group of stitches. On these two rows, you are working in the top of the dc stitches. I hope this explanation helps.

  4. Thank you for posting this! My grandmother used to make these and indeed I have a small stash of them, treasured gifts from her from many decades ago. I cannot tell you how tickled I am to have a pattern for them.
