5 Little Monsters: Dishcloth Week- Cobble Stripe Dishcloth

Dishcloth Week- Cobble Stripe Dishcloth

 It is day 3 of Dishcloth Week here on 5 Little Monsters, and today's pattern is the Cobble Stripe Dishcloth. The textured lines in this pattern create a striped effect, and it only uses 2 basic stitches. 

A few years ago I shared a pattern for the Cobble Stitch Dishcloth, and this pattern is kind of a spin off of that one. The cobble stitch combines single and treble crochet stitches to create a bumpy texture. The single crochet stitches pull the treble crochet stitches down, which makes them push out onto the surface and make a bump. 

The Cobble Stitch Dishcloth was made just using rows of the cobble stitch, but for this one I wanted to switch it up a little. Instead of doing the whole dishcloth in one stitch I alternated cobble stitch rows with sections of plain single crochet to create textured stripes. 

Because the dishcloth is made mostly of single crochet it makes a really solid fabric, and the bumps give it a nice scrubby surface. Which is great because those are 2 things I really like in a dishcloth pattern, not too holey, and plenty of scrubby texture. 

How to Crochet the Cobble Stripe Dishcloth

You will need:


ch 32

Row 1:  sc in 2rd ch from hook and each ch to the end (31 sc)

Row 2: ch 1, turn, sc in each st (31sc)

Row 3: ch 1, turn, sc in each st (31 sc)

Row 4: ch 1, turn, sc in first st, [tr in next st, sc in next] repeat to the end (16 sc, 15 tr)

Row 5: ch 1, turn, sc in each st (31 sc)

Row 6: ch 1, turn, sc in each st (31sc)

Row 7: ch 1, turn, sc in each st (31sc)

Row 8-31: repeat rows 4-7 until you have 31 rows (or until your dishcloth is the length that you want it, always ending with 3 rows of sc)

Finish off, cut yarn, weave in ends

*If you want to make your dishcloth larger or smaller you can do any even number of stitches for your starting ch, the stitch pattern is an odd number +1 for your turning ch
