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″.
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.
Row 1: Ch 26, dc in third ch from hook and in next 2 ch, *sk 1 ch, [dc, ch 1, dc] in next ch (v-stitch made), sk 1 ch, dc in next 4 ch, rep from * across, turn.
Row 2: Ch 2 (counts as first dc here and throughout), sk first dc, dc in next 3 dc, *ch 1, yo, insert hook in space between previous 4-dc group and v-stitch, pull up a lp, yo, pull through 2 lps on hook, sk enter v-stitch, yo, insert hook in space between skipped v-stitch and next 4-dc group, pull up a lp, yo, pull through 2 loops on hook, yo, pull through 3 lps on hook (top of diamond made), ch 1, dc in next 4 dc, rep from * across, turn.
Row 3: Ch 2, sk first dc, dc in next 3 dc, *v-stitch in top of diamond, dc in next 4 dc, rep from * across, turn.
Rows 4-11: Rep rows 2-3.
Row 12: Rep row 2, fasten off, weave in ends securely.
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 PDFs of my patterns so you would get something in return. I'm steadily working on adding PDFs to all my patterns and I've also made this compilation available at a discounted price. You can, of course, view, print, paste to a word processor, convert to PDF, 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!
