ZigZag Dishcloth (Crochet)


Yarn: I used a lighter weight cotton yarn as I find it easier to wring out than the thicker dishcloths made with the 4 ply cotton. But any weight of cotton will do as you can make the dishcloth as big or small as you want as indicated in the instructions below.

Hook: 4.5 mm

To make your color changes even, do the stitch before the color change as follows: insert hook into st, draw up a loop, drop the yarn and pick up your next color, yarn over hook and pull through the 2 loops on your hook.

You do not have to cut the yarn and sew in any ends for this pattern, you bring the yarn along the row with you and crochet over it with the other color.

Abbreviations used:
ch - chain
sc - single crochet

C1 - Color 1
C2 - Color 2

You can use any colors you wish. I used blue yarn as my C1 and a a variegated yarn as my C2. You can also do your zigzag stripes in many different colors if you like.
