Scrubbing Dish Cloths

A Free Crochet Pattern





Here is a pattern that I have recently come up with so that I can sell them at some craft shows. I think I have worked it out that each dish cloth costs about .75 cents to make and I plan to sell them for 3.00 dollars each. They can be thrown into the wash, and i have thrown them in the dryer without any problems.



Notions:
  • 1 large bath puff * edit since this pattern has come out Red Heart has come out with the Scrubby Yarn This would be a great substitute for the centers, just double up the yarn with 2 strands. 
  • 1 ball of worsted cotton like sugar n cream

Hook: J/ 10- 6.00mm

Gauge: 6 inch square, 5 to 6 dish clothes

Preparation: Take the bath puff apart, and cut it long ways into 5 to 6 equal strips

Row 1: with 1 strip of the puff, ch 5, sl st into beginning ch to make a loop, ch 1 (does not count as a stitch here and throughout)  make 8 hdc in loop, sl st into 1st hdc.

Row 2: Ch 1, 2 hdc in same st. 2 hdc in next st and around. (16 hdc) (You should have just enough of a strip to complete the two rows)

Row 3: Ch 1,( hdc in next 4 st, ch 3) repeat 3 times, sl st into first hdc.

Row 4: Ch 1, (hdc in each of the 4 hdc of previous row, 2 hdc ch 3 2 hdc in corner space) repeat 3 times, sl st into first hdc.

Row 5: Ch 1, Hdc in each of the 6 hdc of previous row, 2 hdc ch 1, 2 hdc in corner space,( hdc in each of the 8 hdc of previous row, 2 hdc ch 1, 2 hdc in corner space) repeat 2 times, 2 hdc in last 2 st of row.

Row 6: C1, hdd in same st, 4 dc in next st, hdc in next st, sc, in next st, skip 1 st, sc in next, hdc in next skip 1 st 4 dc in corner space,  (hdc, sc, skip 1 st, sc, hdc, 4dc, hdc, sc, skip 1 st, sc, hdc, skip 1 st, 4 dc in corner space) repeat 2 times, hdc, sc, in last 2 sts.
