Many Scalloped Boxes Dishcloth

Posted on February 4, 2012

Here is my latest free crochet pattern. I call this dishcloth Many Scalloped Boxes. This dishcloth pattern is a variation of my open mesh magic dishcloth pattern. It’s worked with a sport weight cotton yarn and features a scalloped edging.

Here is another one worked in regular weight cotton. If you like a more open-stitched lightweight dishcloth, you will enjoy using this crocheted dishcloth. It dries out quickly while still providing an excellent cleaning cloth.

Many Scalloped Boxes Dishcloth Pattern

Hook:
G – (4-4.25 mm) Crochet Hook

Materials:
1.25 ozs Cotton yarn
1/4 oz of contrasting Cotton yarn if you want the edging in another color

Description:
8 – 8 1/2 inch square dishcloth depending on yarn used

Directions:
Row 1
Ch 34, Sc in 2nd ch from hook and in ea st. (33)

Row 2 (DC Row)
Ch 2, turn. DC in 1st st, *Ch 1, Sk next st, DC in next st*
Repeat between * to end. Work another DC in last st.
(You will have two DC in last st)

Row 3 (SC Row)
Ch 1, turn. Sk 1st DC, *Sc in next DC, Sc in Ch 1 sp, Sc in next DC*
Repeat between * to last st of row. Sk last DC and Sc into the top of Ch 2.

Repeat Row 2 and 3 until have 11 rows of boxes. End with row 3. Leave yarn attached to begin edging if you are crocheting the edging in the same colored yarn. Otherwise finish off main color and use contrasting yarn for the edging row.

Option for using regular weight cotton yarn:
Repeat Row 2 and 3 until you have 8 rows of boxes or desired length of dishcloth. End with row 3. I did one round of sc around the entire dishcloth before I added my trim on the dishcloth pictured above as I was using up scrap yarn pieces to finish the cloth.

FYI: Each DC should be lined up over the top of each other which creates the box effect.

Edging:
Turn, *Ch 4, work Tr in sm st, sk 2 sts, sl st in next st*, repeat between * as you work along corners and edges evenly with the scalloped edging. FO.
