MATERIALS

Yarn: As always with my crocheted dishclothes, I used a lighter weight cotton yarn as I find it easier to wring out than the thicker dishcloths made with the 4 ply cotton. But any weight of cotton will do as you can make the dishcloth as big or small as you want as indicated in the instructions below.
You can buy the perfect cotton yarn for crocheted dishcloths online at Yarnsbay! It is 100% cotton, lightweight (2 - fine), about half the thickness of standard cotton yarns. They are located in Ontario, Canada. They also ship to the U.S.

Hook: 4.0 mm

Abbreviations used:
ch - chain
sc - single crochet
dc - double crochet
dctog - double crochet together



How to do the 3 dctog: yarn over and insert into st, yarn over and pull up a loop, yarn over and pull through 2 loops on hook, yarn over and insert in next st, yarn over and pull up a loop, yarn over and pull through 2 loops on hook, yarn over and insert in next st, yarn over and pull up a loop, yarn over and pull through 2 loops on hook, yarn over and pull through all 4 loops on hook.

I think this pattern is fun in that every row gets shorter and faster to do.
