About Mafisen’s Dishcloth

This dishcloth is super simple in the design – and that’s something I like. It is crocheted in filet crochet, which I am still quite a fan of. My brother Mathias is too, so as he is about to move, I thought it would be the perfect housewarming gift. Or at least part of it 😉

Crochet time: 1 hour
Skill level: Easy
Size: 25 x 25 cm

For this free crochet pattern on Mafisen’s Dishcloth you need to be able to make double crochets (dc), chains (ch) and single crochet (sc).

For this pattern, there is a special technique instead of turning chains, that makes the edges very very neat. It has no name, so I have chosen to call them “Pretty Turning (pt)” – see the video on that here.

Before you get started

There is a special technique you need to use, when turning the work to get the perfectly straight edges. I call it “Pretty Turning (pt)“. You can of course choose to turn the piece in your usual way, but I would recommend you to try this, because it will be quite nice.

Step 1

When you have reached the end of the row, turn around without making turning stitches.

(At the chain in the very beginning, you use a turning chain – otherwise it’s impossible to get the first single crochet in.)

Step 2

Pull a little in the loop, and make a single crochet in the first stitch.

Step 3

On top of that single crochet, you make another: Insert the hook in the back loop of the two loops from the first single crochet and make a single crochet in it.

Step 4

You have now made 2 stitches with the Pretty Turning = 2 pt. This counts as your first stitch.

The holes in the pattern

The holes in the pattern appear by making a chain and skipping a stitch. When you have to crochet on top of the chain (where there is a hole), you crochet around the entire chain – insert crochet hook into the hol,e that has come, and take the yarn back. That’s how you get a nice hole …

(Parantheses) og commas,

When you crochet according to the pattern, there are some different characters you use, so you avoid huge lines. Here I use commas “,” and parentheses “()”.

  • At a comma: What stands between commas, you just do as it says.
  • At parentheses: What is in between parentheses must be multiplied by the number of times that follows.

If you are new to patterns, then it’s explained here with an example:

EXAMPLE ROW 1 (2 dc, 1 ch, skip 1 stitch) 2 times, 6 dc, turn

This means:

dc, dc, 1 ch, skip 1 stitch, dc, dc, 1 ch, skip 1 stitch, dc, dc, dc, dc, dc, dc, turn

59 chains (ch) + 1 turning chain (tch) (a regular turning chain, and that means, that you start in the second loop from the hook).

2 pt, 2 dc, 1 chain, skip one stitch (3 dc, 1 ch, skip 1 stitch) 13 times, 3 dc, turn.

2 pt, (1 ch, skip 1 stitch, 3 dc) 14 times, 1 ch, skip 1 stitch, 1 dc, turn.

Repeat the rows until you have made 25 rows (or until it is square for you if we have different crochet gauge. It’s best to end the dishcloth with a row 1).

Weave in ends and babaaaaa: You now have a “Mafisen’s Dishcloth” that is ready for use 🤗
