Ruffle Dishcloth Pattern

I decided to join a dishcloth exchange, thinking it would be a great way to experiment with motifs, stitch patterns, etc. while still creating something functional. It’s true! And not only that–believe it or not, crocheted dishcloths are great to do dishes with! There better than any rag you can buy in the store, and it’s fun to know you’re using something made just for you.

This one is done in the round. I was going for something floral, and I finished it with a ruffle because I thought it would be nice and scrubby.

I plan to take a better photo tomorrow in natural light. But I’m impatient, so there you are.

Here’s the pattern:

Materials: 1 ball Sugar and Cream (It took about half the ball)
Size H hook
Gauge is not important for the dishcloth.

[Note: each round is joined with a slipstitch, and the work is not turned but worked in the same direction for the entire piece]

Ch 3, join with a slipstitch to form a ring.
Round 1: 6 sc into center of ring. Join with a slipstitch, chain 1, do not turn.

Round 2: 2 sc in each sc in the ring. Join. Chain 1.

Round 3: sc in next 2 stitches, *[2 sc in next stitch, sc in next stitch], repeat from * to the end of the round. Join, chain 1.

Round 4: sc in next 3 stitches, *[2 sc in next sc, sc in each of next 2 stitches] repeat from * to the end of the round. Join, chain 3.

Round 5: dc in next 4 stitches, *[2 dc in next stitch, dc in each of next 3 stitches] repeat from * to the end of the round. Join, chain 3.

Round 6: dc in next stitch, chain 1, skip 1 stitch, dc in each of next 2 stitches *[ch 1, skip 1 stitch, 2 dc in next stitch, chain 1, skip 1 stitch, dc in each of next 2 stitches], repeat from * to the end of the round. Join, chain 3.

Round 7: dc in each of next 4 stitches, *[2 dc in next stitch, dc in each of next 5 stitches], repeat from * to the end of the round. Join, chain 3.

Round 8: dc in next stitch, *[chain 3, skip next 3 stitches, 2 dc in next stitch], repeat from * to the end of the round. Join, chain 3.

Round 9: dc in next 5 stitches *[2 dc in next stitch, dc in each of next 4 stitches], repeat from * to the end of the round. Join, chain 3.

Round 10 (ruffle): 3 dc in each stitch of the round.

Fasten off, weave in ends.

So, since this pattern is untested–if you try it–please let me know if you run into any trouble/errors, and I’ll fix them and credit you!
