I am working on a butterfly hat pattern which I will be emailing a pdf file of the pattern for every donation if you email me at as well to say you want the pattern and once I confirm the donation so please be sure to use the same email address when you donate as you do when you email me. Butterfly Knit Hat Pattern.

Ok back to Simply lacy Look Dish Cloth Pattern!

Homemade cotton dish cloths are my favorite. They are absorbent and textured great for cleaning dishes, washing off counter tops, and soft enough to be used as a facial wash cloth if you wish.

Yarn: 4 ply worsted weight 100% cotton
I use Peaches & Creme or Sugar and Cream Brands
Hook Size: J/10  6.00 mm
6 DC Stitches = 2” (gauge is not important, as any size will work)
Finished size 9 1/2” x 9 1/2”

Chain 32

Row 1: Double crochet in 4th chain from the hook (3 chains you skip will count as your first stitch) and all across, chain 3 and turn  (counting the turning chain you have 30 stitches across)

Row 2: DC in first 3 DC Spaces, *Skip 1 DC Space, DC in next DC Space, DC back into Skipped Space with your hook going behind previous stitch (forms an X)* Repeat from * until 4 DC spaces remain, DC to the end. (30 stitches) Chain 3 and turn

Up close look at the crochet X stitch

Row 3: DC across, Chain 3 and turn

Repeat Rows 2 & 3 seven times for a total of 17 rows

Finish off by weaving in ends

I think this pattern increased in size would make a great baby blanket done in any type of soft yarn cotton or acrylic.

This pattern is intended for your personal use. This is my personal pattern, permission is not given to sell the pattern, or the items you make.
