This dishcloth works up very easily and it’s great as a “keep your hands busy” project as the stitches are repetitive and simple. The wedge is small, doubled up and perfect for scrubbing and corners. It features FPdc and BPdc stiches for texture and durability.

Pattern Notes
Dishcloth
• Ch1 does not equal a stitch.
• You will place the dc, hdc, sc in the same st – referred to as “pattern st” at the end count.
• The dishcloth will slant to the side; that’s okay it’s just direction of the stitches slanting the dishcloth. Once finished, it will also curl.
• On finishing, place a sc, on each st, as evenly as you can around the entire piece. There will be no specific amount of stitches listed.
• You can make your dishcloth longer or shorter by repeating Rows 2 & 3 as many times as you want.

Wedge
• Ch2 does not equal a stitch.
• Join with a sl st to the beginning st skipping the ch2.
• You will work in the round and then fold piece in half to create a wedge.
• You will sl st to seal the wedge. The wedge will have an empty space in the middle of the piece. You can top stitch this to keep it in place if you’d like. I didn’t top stitch mine.
