Right Angle Rows Dishcloth Version 2

This pattern gives the dishcloth ridged rows which I think adds a nice effect. Here's the link to my first Right Angle Rows Dishcloth. These patterns are fun in that every row gets shorter and faster to do.

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
sctog - single crochet together
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.

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

I started with Ch 82 because I am user a lighter weight cotton yarn. (For different sizes with other weights of cotton, take the number of chs you normally start with, double that, add 3 for the center sts, add 1 for the turning ch.)

Row 1 - 1 sc in 2nd ch from hook, 1 sc in next 38 chs, 3 sctog over next 3 chs, 1 sc in next 39 chs, ch 1, turn.

(For different sizes, sc in sts to the center 3 sts, 3 sctog, then continue to end of row, ch 1, turn. Do that for every odd numbered rows until completed.)

Row 2 - The ch 2 counts as first dc, through back loops only 1 dc in next 37 dc ( the ch2 + 37 dc = 38 dc), skip 1 dc, 3 dctog, skip 1 dc, 1 dc in next. 38 dc, ch 2, turn.

(For different sizes, dc in sts to the center 5 sts, skip 1 st, 3 dctog, skip 1 st, then continue to end of row, ch 2, turn. Do that for every even numbered rows until completed.)

Row 3 - Through back loops only 1 sc in next 37 chs, 3 sctog over next 3 sc, 1 sc in next 37 chs, ch 1, turn.

Repeat Rows 2 and 3 until you have 3 sts left, then crochet them together and finish off.

Remember all rows are through the back loops only.

On the rows of sc you will be reducing by 1 st on both sides the 3 center sts, for a total of 2 st decrease per right angle row.

On the rows of dc you will be reducing by 2 sts on both sides of the 3 center sts, for a total of 4 st decrease per right angle row.

Border - Do a row or two of sc around the dishcloth, putting 3 sc in the corners
