Picket Fence Dishcloth Pattern

Posted on April 24, 2012

Here is my latest open-stitched crocheted dishcloth pattern for those that like that style of a cloth. It reminds me of a picket fence and thus the name was given to this pattern. I added a crab stitch or reverse single crochet trim to finish off the dishcloth.

I hope you enjoy the free crochet pattern and happy crocheting to all!

Crocheted Picket Fence Dishcloth Pattern

H (5 mm) USA crochet hook

1-1/2 ozs of Cotton yarn (Green Twists used)
1/4 oz contrasting Cotton yarn for trim (Sage Green used)

9 inch x 9 inch Cotton Dishcloth

Row 1
Ch 32, Sc in 2nd ch from hook and in ea st. (31)

Row 2 (TC Row)
Ch 3, turn. TC in 1st st, *Ch 1, Sk next st, TC in next st*
Repeat between * to end. Work another TC in last st.
(You will have two TC in last st)

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

Repeat Row 2 and 3 until have 7 rows of boxes. End with row 3. FO.

FYI: Each TC should be lined up over the top of each other which creates the picket fence effect.

Using contrasting cotton yarn, attach yarn in any corner with RS facing. Work reverse single crochet or crab stitch evenly around edges. I worked 2 sts in the corners and along the sides that had the TC sts. FO.
