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.
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.
