Well here is the last item in my red and white kitchen theme … at least for now … a pretty cluster stitch crochet dishcloth pattern. I hope you give it a try. It’s a great way to learn a (perhaps) new stitch too!
Cluster Stitch Crochet Dishcloth Pattern
Here’s what you need:
- worsted weight cotton yarn
- H hook
- scissors and tapestry needle
Three double crochet cluster (3dc-cl): Yarn over, insert hook into specified stitch, yarn over and pull up loop, yarn over and pull through 2 loops on hook, repeat 2 more times (4 loops will be on hook), yarn over and pull through all 4 loops on hook.
Row 1: Work a 3dc-cl in 4th ch from hook, *ch 1, skip next ch, 3dc-cl in next ch, repeat from * across, turn — 11 3dc-cl and 10 ch-sps.
Row 2: Ch 3 (does not count as stitch), skip 1st st, work a 3dc-cl in first ch-1 sp, *ch 1, skip next st, 3dc-cl in next ch-1 sp, repeat from * across working last 3dc-cl in top of turning ch, turn — 11 3dc-cl and 10 ch-sps.
Rows 3 through 11: Repeat Row 2.
Edging: Ch 1, work 1 sc in each st and ch-sp across row, work 3 sc in corner, work 2 sc along the edge of each row, 3 sc in corner, work 1 sc in each foundation chain, 3 sc in corner, work 2 sc along the edge of each row, join.
Fasten off, weave in ends.
