POWERFUL PETAL DISHCLOTH

 


“Powerful Petal Dishcloth”

Designer: Aurora Suominen/DragonFlyMomof2 Designs©2019


Hook: H/5.0mm Yarn: Cotton Yarn/ Finished Size: About 9” petal to petal

 ______________________________________________________________

~Abbreviations/Stitches Used: St(s)=Stitch(es): Include the following sts

Rnd=Round          Ch=Chain Slst=Slip Stitch          Sk=SkiP          Sc=Single Crochet                          FL=Front Lp          Fp=Front Post      Dc=Double Crochet   Lps=Loops         

Leftover Lps=The back lps that are left unworked from working in the flps of previous rnd              _______________________________________________________________         

~Notes: Join: W/slst in beg st. Instructions between the [to] are repeated around.


Rnd 1: Ch4, work 11dc in 4th ch from hook, join.  (12dc)


Rnd 2: (Ch3, 3dc) in joining st. [Sc in next st, 4dc in next st] Repeat around ending w/sc in last st, join in the fl of ch3. (24dc, 6sc)


Rnd 3: (Ch1, sc) in joining lp.  [2sc in next 2lps, sc in next lp, fpsc in next sc, sc in next lp] Repeat around, ending w/a fpsc in last sc. (6sc in each petal=36sc & 6fpsc)


This rnd is worked in the leftover loops behind work

Rnd 4: [2dc in 3 leftover lps (behind work), (in front of work) fpsc in next fpst] Repeat around, join in fl of 1st dc.  (36dc & 6fpsc)


Rnd 5: (Ch1, sc) in same lp, sc in next fl.  [2Sc in next 2fls, sc in next 2fls, fpsc in next fpst. Sc in 2lps] Repeat around ending w/fpsc in last sc. (8sc in each petal=48sc & 6fpsc)


*Note: The first leftover lp fl is hard to see, for me it helps to count the leftover lps from left to right and then work the first st in the “hard” to see 1st lp


Rnd 6: [Going behind work, 2dc in next 6 leftover lps, fpsc in next fpst] Repeat around, ending w/fpsc in last fpst, join in the fl of 1st dc made. (72dc & 6fpsc) 


Rnd 7: (Ch1, sc) in joining st, sc in next 4flps. [2sc in next 2flps, sc in 5fls, fpsc in next fpst, sc in 5flps] Repeat around ending w/fpsc in last fpst.  (14sc in each petal=84sc & 6fpsc)


Rnd 8: [Behind work, dc in first 3 leftover lps behind work, 2dc in next 6 leftover lps, dc in next 3 leftover lps. Fpsc in next fpst] Repeat around, join in fl of first dc.  (108dc & 6fpsc)

Rnd 9: (Ch1, sc) in same fl, sc in 17fls, sc in both loops of next fpst, sc in 18fls] Repeat around, ending w/sc in both loops of next fpst.  (114sc).


Rnd 10: Behind work, dc in next 8 leftover lps, 2dc in next 2 leftover lps, dc in next 8 leftover lps.  Sc in next sc (in between petals)] Repeat around, join to first dc, fasten off and weave in ends.  


This dishcloth is meant to “curl in between the petals.
