Below are the first 3 weeks, they where so much fun!

Waffle Stitch Textured Dishcloth – Week 1

Summer Squiggles Dishcloth – Week 2

Bavarian Stitch Dishcloth – Week 3

Now on to Week 4….


  • If you have tight tension, you can use a Front Post Treble Stitch instead of the Front Post Double Crochet
  • When are doing the Post Stitches 2 rows below, make sure not to do a stitch in the Single Crochet of the row below of the same stitch or you will add to your stitch count. See pic tutorial
  • You will do a Dc/Fpdc row, then a sc row, then the next Dc/Fpdc row, The alternating rows with Fpdc, Dc… Make sure fpdc’s and dc’s will alternate so they don’t line up on each other. See pic
  • When making Chain 2 at the beginning of the DC row Does NOT count as a stitch. Make sure you start your first DC in that same st.


You will use 150 Yards of Cotton Yarn, I used Lily Cream & Sugar in Wine

Hook H


  • Ch – Chain
  • St – Stitch
  • Sk – Skip
  • Sl St – Slip Stitch
  • Sc – Single Crochet
  • Dc – Double Crochet
  • Fpdc – Front Post Double Crochet


Make sure to read the tips above, they are important

Ch 30

Row 1: Sc in 2nd ch from hook and each across. = 29 sc

Row 2: Ch 2(does not count as a st), turn, dc in each st across. = 29 dc

Row 3: Ch 1, turn, sc in each st across. = 29 sc

Row 4: Ch 2, turn, *dc in st, Fpdc around next dc 2 rows below*, repeat across, dc in last st. = 14 fpdc & 15 dc

Row 5: Ch 1, turn, sc in each st across. = 29 sc

Row 6: Ch 2, turn, dc in 1st 2 sts, *fpdc in next dc 2 rows below, dc in next st*, repeat *to* across, dc in last st. 16 dc & 13 fpdc

Rows 7-32: Repeat rows 3-6 ending with a row 4.


Row 33: Ch 1, turn, sc across to the end, 3 sc in last st, evenly sc 27 sts down row edges, 3 sc in 1st st of row 1, finish off. Join yarn in the last st of row 1, 3 sc in that st, evenly sc 27 sts up the row edges, 2 sc in 1st st of row 32, sl st to join. = 120 sc

Row 34: Ch 1, turn, sc in st, * 3 sc in next st, sc in next 29 sts*, repeat *to* 2 more times, 3 sc in next st, sc in next 28 sts, join to beginning sc. = 128 sc (You will have worked across the sc’s where you finished off in the previous row like they were all a continuous row)

Row 35: Ch 1, NO turn, loosely sl st in each st around. = 128 sl st

Finish off and weave your ends in.
