Slanted Dishcloth and Wedge Pattern
This Slanted Dishcloth and Wedge is crocheted using Red Heart’s Scrubby Sparkly Yarn. It’s a fun dishcloth to crochet that will add a pop of color to your kitchen. The dishcloth is big enough to wash your dishes well yet small enough that it doesn’t get in the way. Its loop is great for easy hanging and drying. The wedge fits just right in your hands and works great on smaller items that have some more stubborn spots.

- Ch1 does not equal a stitch.
- You will place the dc, hdc, sc in the same st – referred to as “pattern st” at the end count.
- The dishcloth will slant to the side; that’s okay it’s just direction of the stitches slanting the dishcloth. Once finished, it will also curl.
- On finishing, place a sc, on each st, as evenly as you can around the entire piece. There will be no specific amount of stitches listed.
- You can make your dishcloth longer or shorter by repeating Rows 2 & 3 as many times as you want.
- Ch2 does not equal a stitch.
- Join with a sl st to the beginning st skipping the ch2.
- You will work in the round and then fold piece in half to create a wedge.
- You will sl st to seal the wedge. The wedge will have an empty space in the middle of the piece. You can top stitch this to keep it in place if you’d like. I didn’t top stitch mine.
Row 1: ch1, sc in second st from hook, sc in each st across, turn. <46 sc>
Row 2: ch1, sc in the same st, [sk2 sts, dc, hdc, sc in next st] 14x, sk2 sts, sc in last st, turn. < 2 sc, 14 pattern sts>
Row 3: ch1, 2sc in the same st, sc in each st across to st before last, 2sc in last st, turn. <46 sc>
Rows 4 – 35: Rep rows 2 and 3. Do not fasten off. Move on to finishing.
You will now work a sc around the entire piece as followed: turn as the end of row 35, ch1, 2sc in same st, 1sc in each st across to st before last, 2sc in last st.
At this corner, you will create a loop: ch 10, then join to the same st as previous 2sc and place 2sc in that corner.
For the remaining three sides, place a sc evenly in each st taking care to place 4sc in each corner. When you’ve reached where you started, place 2sc in that st. Fasten off and weave in ends.

Round 4: ch2, 1FPdc in the same st, 1BPdc in the next st, 2FPdc in the next [1FPdc in the next, 1BPdc in the next, 2FPdc in the next] 7x, join. <24 FPdc; 8 BPdc>
Round 5: ch2, 1dc in the same st and the next 2 sts, 2dc in the next st, [1dc in the next 3sts, 2dc in the next st] 7x, join. <40 dc>
Round 6: ch2, 1FPdc in the same st and next 3sts, 2BPdc in the next st, [1FPdc in the next 4 sts, 2BPdc in the next st] 7x, join. <32 FPdc, 16 BPdc>
Round 7: ch2, 1dc in the same st and in each st around, join. <48 dc>
Round 8: ch1, 1sc in the same st and in each st around, join. <48 dc>
Do not fasten off. Move on to finishing.
Fold the circle in half creating a wedge. Join your halves using a sl st across. Fasten off and weave in ends.
