Right Angle Rows Dishcloth Ver. 3

This is another version of the Right Angle Rows Dishcloth. Click here for Version 1 and Version 2.

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

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.)

Row 2 - Through back loops only 1 sc in next 38 sts, 3 sctog, 1 sc in next 38 sts, ch 1, turn.

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

Row 4 - Through back loops only 1 sc in next 36 sts, 3 sctog, 1 sc in next 36 sts, ch 1, turn.

Row 5 - Through back loops only *1 sc in next st, ch 1 and skip next st*, repeat over 35 sts, 3 sctog, *1 sc in next st, ch 1 and skip next st*, repeat over 35 sts, ch 1, turn.

Row 6 - 1 sc in first st, 1 sc in ch 1 space, ch1 skip next st. *1 sc in next st, ch 1 and skip next st*, repeat over 34 sts, 3 sctog, *ch 1 and skip next st, 1 sc in next st*, repeat over 34 sts, ch 1, turn.

Rows 7 to 12 - Work in this *1 sc, ch 1 skip next st" pattern to the 3 center sts, then 3 sc tog, and *1 sc, ch 1 skip next st" pattern to end of row. Wherever there is a ch 1 space, put a sc in it, wherever there is a sc, ch 1 and skip the sc.

Row 13 - 1 sc in each sc and ch 1 space to 3 center sts, then 3 sc tog, 1 sc in each st, ch 1 turn.

Rows 14 to 16 - Through back loops only 1 sc in each sc to 3 center sts, then 3 sc tog, 1 sc in each sc, ch 1 turn.

Repeat Rows 5 to 16 to 3 sts left to work, 3 sctog, fasten off.

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