Crochet This Heavenly Dishcloth To Add To Your Angel Wings Household Helper Set!
The newest pattern in my "Angel Wings Household Helpers" series is this easy ribbed dishcloth. If you're bored with crocheting the "same old" dishcloth, here's something completely different to make! It works up lightning fast, too, in 100% cotton yarn (I used Sugar N' Cream).
i've designed this with an easy strap to hold your dishcloth easier in your hand. Come to think of it, I actually can see myself dusting big surfaces with this!
Crochet up a few edged in different colors, or make them in solids or variegates. Be sure to check out my patterns for the coordinating Angel Wings Potholder and Angel Wings Scrubbies (links below).
As always, happy crocheting!
My Schnauzer Difficulty Rating 2 - Easy
What You Will Need
Less than 1 ball Sugar n' Cream yarn OR any 100% cotton worsted weight yarn plus small amount of yarn for contrast edging if desired
Crochet hook size G or your preferred
A Word About Yarn & Thread Selection...
You may use different yarns such as scrap yarns or threads with good results! Just make sure to keep them similar in weight and thickness so as not to throw off the pattern.
Let's Make The Magic!
NOTE: Each row will have one more SC than the last. Working the SC in the place before the next SC on round 1 prevents the cloth from curling. In the potholder we wanted this curl; in this item we don't.
Ch6, join with sl st to form ring.
Ch 1, work 12 SC in ring. Join with sl st to first SC.
Ch 21, work 1 SC in 2nd ch from hook and in each chain (20 SC). SC in the place before the next SC on round 1. (Increase made). Slip stitch into next SC on round 1. CH 1, turn.
Row 2-A /
Work 1 SC in back loop only of each SC. Leave last SC unworked. Ch 1, turn.
Row 2-B /
SC in back loop only of all SC. SC in last SC. SC in the place before the next SC on round 1. (Increase made). Slip stitch into next SC on round 1. Ch 1, turn.
Repeat Rows 2-A and 2-B until you only have one SC left of the 12 SC's in Round 1. Leave the last SC on Round 1 unworked, ending with the slip stitch in the 11th SC. Fasten off.
Attach contrast color in any corner. Work SC-ch 1-SC in corner. SC in each row on ribbing edge. Work (SC-ch 1-SC) in corner. Work SC in each stitch. Work around and join to first SC. Fasten off, weave in ends.
Attach main color in same place you just fastened off. Chain desired width of handle to fit your hand (I used 18). Slip stitch in place on opposite side of work. Slip stitch in next stitch up, chain 1. SC back across in each chain. *Slip stitch in next stitch up on that side. Ch 1. Turn, SC in each SC across. Repeat from * for as many rows as you'd like the width of the handle to be plus two rows. End with slip stitch. Fasten off.
Attach contrast color on either edge of handle. SC in each SC across. Repeat for other side of handle. Fasten off, weave in ends.

A Note From Your Designer...
Hi, I'm SheilaSchnauzies, also published as SheilaSparkles, and my life's passion is designing in Crochet! I also love to share gifts with friends, and this pattern is my gift to you! I give away about 95% of my pattern designs free. The other 5% are sold on my pattern store at Craftsy.com to benefit the vet expenses of my Miniature Schnauzer Rescue, Sheila's Schnauzies.
Just one little favor, please... I would appreciate it if you do not post this pattern anywhere on the Internet or in the 'real world.' Instead, you are most welcome to provide a link to this webpage.
I use a system I call the "Official Schnauzer Difficulty Rating" just for fun, to rate the difficulty of my patterns. If it's a 3/5 or more, I'll explain why I consider it more difficult. A few of my designs use techniques that are a bit unconventional! If it's one of those patterns, I'll warn you ahead of time. I do a lot of custom-fit patterns, for example. They are made to fit YOU, not a measurement from a chart. They're surprisingly easy to do and actually end up fitting. That's a good thing, yes?
So glad you found my patterns! I hope you really enjoy making whatever it is you're making! Crochet hugs, -Sheila
