You can probably tell that I’m going a bit nuts designing dishcloths,especially for Tunisian or Afghan crochet. This latest one is based on mitered Tunisian crochet. I hope you like it!
You’re going to need:
Size “J” afghan hook
1 skein dishcloth cotton,I used Peaches and Cream Lemon Lime. Variegated yarn is best.
a yarn needle
stitch marker (split ring type)
*Note: Return row is always worked as follows: Yo,pull through 1 loop on hook. **Yo,pull through 2 loops on hook. Repeat from ** until 1 stitch before marked center stitch. Yo,pull through 4 loops on hook. Continue to end with yo,pull through 2 loops on hook. You will end up with 1 loop remaining on hook.
Chain 51 sts.
Row 1: Pick up a loop in 2nd chain from hook,and in each remaining chain. Use stitch marker and mark center stitch. (Stitch # 26). Work return row.
Row 2: Pick up a loop in each vertical bar until you reach the corner. You should see 3 vertical bars clustered up together. Pick up a loop as if this cluster counted as 1 vertical bar. Mark this stitch as center stitch. Pick up a loop in each remaining vertical bar. Work return row.
Repeat row 2 until you have just the loop on the hook and you see nothing more than the corner cluster and the last vertical bar. Pick up a stitch in the corner and the last bar. Three loops on hook. Yarn over and pull through all three loops. Now work a row of single crochet stitches evenly around cloth,working 3 sc in each corner. Break yarn and weave in ends.
