*(sk next 2 sts, dc3tog, ch 2, dc3tog, ch 2) in the next st, repeat from * until you have a total of 12 dc3tog, sk the beginning ch-2, sl st to first dc, and fasten off. If the last gap looks bigger, unravel and do the last ch 2 tight before you sl st to the first dc. Use your hook to pull the yarn tail to the back through the next st. See pic 3 above.——12 dc3tog
Round 3: With blue color yarn, sl st to the ch-2 space right before the point of fastening off, (ch 2, dc2tog) in the same ch 2 space (counts as first dc3tog), (ch 1, dc3tog, ch 1) in the same ch-2 space, (dc3tog, ch 1, dc3tog, ch 1)in each ch-2 space across, skip beginning ch2 and sl st to the first dc2tog, fasten off.

Last Round: Sl st loosely to the next st and each st across to the base of the chain loop, sl st into each ch of the loop, continue sl stitching along the rim of the dishcloth all the way to the marked st (see pic 5 above), fasten off and finish with an invisible join.
