These are quick and simple to make all purpose cloths. Instead of a typical hanging loop I made a small "buttonhole". Looks nice and serves it's purpose well.
Rib stitch dishloths with buttonholes:
Worsted weight kitchen cotton
hook 4 mm
st, sts-stitch, stitches
blo sc- single crochet through back loop only
Chain 31, or as many as you need for desired size of your cloth.
sc in back bump of each ch across, placing first st in 3rd ch from hook (beg ch counts as first sc), turn
ch 1 (counts as first blo sc now and throughout pattern), blo sc in next 3 sts, ch 5, skip next 5 sts, blo sc in next st and in each st across row, placing last stitch on top of beg ch of previous row, turn [25 blo sc, 5 ch]
ch 1, blo sc in each blo sc and ch across, turn [30 blo sc]
Row 4 and up
ch 1, blo sc in each st across, turn [30 blo sc]
Repeat Row 4 until desired shape is obtained (my cloths are 7 in squares)
NOTE: Be careful not to lose the last st of each row. Beggining chain has a tendency to almost vanish, but you have to find it and put your last stitch of row there! :) Count your stitches, each row has 30 of them ( or the number of your choice).
I thought about making slip stitch or single crochet edge, but I rather like the look of these dishcloths as they are, without any additional stitching.
