Hi everyone! I recently made this dish cloth set for a friend as a gift and wanted to share. The pattern worked up quickly and I was really pleased with how they turned out. The scalloped edge is my absolute favorite part of the pattern! This pattern is easy enough for beginners and makes a great gift, especially if you need something in a hurry. I found the basket in the photos at my local Target however any tray or basket would work. You could also add lotions and soap to complete the set. I hope you will enjoy the pattern as much as I did and thanks for visiting my shop!
If you would like the printable PDF version of this pattern you can find it here in my shop for $1.

The CH 1 at the beginning of each round will not count in the ST count.
Round 1: 1 SC in each ST around the dish cloth, working 3 SC into each corner ST. When you reach the corner you started with join with a SL ST into the 1st SC and CH 1.
Round 2: **1 SC, 1 HDC, 1 SC in next ST, SL ST next ST. Repeat from ** around. If the stitch count ends slightly off with the the last SL ST it is not a problem. Simply adjust as needed at the end of Round 2 by adding or taking away a SL ST.
