How to crochet a bumpy dishcloth

Hello everyone!  I just got back from spending ten days out at beautiful Lake Pleasant, Arizona.  Once a year I do that.  Its my spiritual retreat.  Time to reconnect with God and also make an abundance of items to give away to friends and family or to sell.  This year I made candles and potholders and dishcloths.  I figured out the perfect pattern for a dishcloth which I will share with you.  I will soon be posting the video on how to make candles with vegetable cans.  They actually look pretty cool!  The ones I made I did on a coleman stove out at the lake and for some reason it just seems to make them all that much more special.  They are really easy to do and I think you will enjoy making some for yourself or your friends.  But for now, let me give you the pattern for making the dishcloth.  The pattern for the potholders is on my post “Potholders”.  If you wish to purchase these potholders and dishcloths go here:

Bumpy Dishcloth

Materials:  I use sugar n cream cotton yarn.  1 skein makes 1 dishcloth at least.

Size G hook

Ch 30

Row 1: sc in each ch across, ch 2 turn.

Row 1:  * dc in first sc, sc in next sc * repeat from * to* across, ending with dc, ch 1 turn

Row 2:  sc in next st and in each st across, ch 1 turn

Row 3:  * sc in next sc, sc in next sc, ch 3* repeat from * to * across, ch 1 turn

Row 4:  sc in each sc across, ch 1 turn

Row 5-8: * dc in next st, sc in next st * repeat across

Note: If you end the row in a sc, ch2 , turn and your first stitch will be sc.  If you end in dc, ch 1, turn and dc in first st.

Repeat rows 2-8 : 3 times

repeat rows 2-4 once

End row: *dc in next st, sc in next st* repeat from * to * across. Fasten off.

Well have fun making this dishcloth and potholders and as always May your handwork be blessed and your felting fulfilling!  Happy Creating!

    Do you mean to alternte dc and sc across foundation chain or to “dc in 3rd ch from hook, sc in next ch” as your pattern states?
    Following your directions, I end up with 15 sc on row 2 and a dishcloth that isn’t as long as the palm of my hand!
    TIA for any help in understanding the directions.

    • Thank you so much for bringing this to my attention. I just made the appropriate adjustments to the pattern. So sorry for any inconvenience this may have caused you.
