Little Diamonds Dishcloth
designed by Kim Guzman © Oct. 2016 (design re-write from original publish of Jun. 1999)
Technique: Regular Crochet
- About 45-50 yards any worsted craft cotton
- Crochet Hook Size K (6.5mm)
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.
