Crochet Dishcloth

Pattern Note: Before adding the border your dishcloth will only be 6-3/4″ . The border will add another 1″ to the width to make the final width 7-3/4″. If you like it wider, just add more chains to the foundation chain. 



With the H(5mm) hook, ch 29. You can chain any odd number. 


Row 1: Mini bean stitch in the 3rd ch from hook, *(ch 1, sk next ch, mini bean stitch in the next ch), repeat from * until 2 chs are left, ch 1, sk next ch, 1 sc in last st, turn.———13 mini bean sts+1 sc



Row 2: Ch 1, mini bean st into the gap after the first sc, ch 1, mini bean st into the gap between each of the 2 bean sts of the previous row, ch 1, sk last repeat, 1 sc into the space under the beginning ch, turn.——-13 mini bean sts 



Repeat Row 2 until you have a square-shaped piece, but do not fasten it off. I had completed 21 rows when my dishcloth was a square. Proceed to make the border. 




Round 1: Continue with the H(5mm) hook, work 2 more sc in the same ch you worked your last sc in, place a marker in the first of the 2 sc you just made, and distribute sc sts evenly along the left edge of your dishcloth, ie. work 1 sc across each mini bean st and 1 sc across the junction of 2 bean sts until you reach the next corner.



3 sc in the corner, 1 sc under each bean st and into each ch-1 skipped between the bean sts until you reach the next corner, 3 sc in the corner, distribute sc sts along the right edge until you reach the next corner, 3 sc in the corner, switch to the 4.5mm hook,  1 sc in each st of the last row until you end in the st right before the marked st, sl st to marked st, do not turn. 



Round 2: Continue with the smaller 4.5mm hook.*(ch 1,  sl st into the next st), place a marker in ch 1 you just made, and repeat from * to end of the round, sl st to marked ch-1, fasten off. 



Pull any tails left to the back of the dishcloth and weave it in securely.
