Little Diamonds Dishcloth
designed by Kim Guzman © Oct. 2016 (design re-write from original publish of Jun. 1999)
Please read my Terms of Use
Technique: Regular Crochet

Materials

  • About 45-50 yards any worsted craft cotton
  • Crochet Hook Size K (6.5mm)

Yarn Note

Projects are shown in Lily Sugar ‘n Cream Stripes (tie dye stripes) and Lily Sugar ‘n Cream (hot blue)

Size

Approximately 9″

Gauge

Gauge isn’t overwhelmingly crucial here as long as you like the fabric, drape and size of your cloth. If you want your cloths to be exactly the same as the ones photographed, you’ll work to a tension that achieves 11 sts for 5 rows to measure 4″.

Notes

My idea of a good dishcloth is one that is thin and drapey. I need to be able to stick the cloth and my hand into glasses in order to wash them. I need a good utilitarian dishcloth. This very simple cloth fits that description for me perfectly.

If you want to change the size of your project, the stitch multiple is 7, plus 5.

Many of you have written to me to ask how you can help support CrochetKim. A Patreon account was suggested but I thought it would be better to provide ad-free PDF's of my patterns. You can, of course, view, print ,paste to a word processor, convert to PDF's, etc, on your own. This is just an extra feature so that people help out if they want. Thank you to all of you for your overwhelming support and kindness these many years. Enjoy!
