Notes:
  • Although the yarn I used (Knit Picks Dishie) is considered a worsted weight yarn, I find it to run a little thinner than other yarns in the same weight category. I liked the result a G-6 / 4.0 mm crochet hook for this yarn. If using a heavier yarn, adjust hook size.
  • Finished dishcloth measures approximately 8 in. x 8 in.
  • Gauge: 14 sc = 4 in.
 
Front Post Double Crochet (FPdc): Yarn over and insert hook from the front around the back and to the front again, working around the post of the stitch two rows below. Complete as a regular double crochet.
