Notes
I’ve noticed that the chevron pattern does not pop immediately. After a washing you can see it much better, but because I used cotton you cannot block out the chevron pattern properly

Materials
Crochet hook: Tunisian Hook 6 mm
Yarn: 1 ball of Lily Sugar n Cream, 86 meters/95 yards per ball (1 ball yields 2 dishcloths)



Pattern

Ch 24

Make a foundation row, after finishing the forward pass you will have 25 loops on your hook, and 1 loop left after finishing the return pass.

Follow diagram for the pattern.

To finish your dishcloth make a finishing row after row 18 but keep in mind to insert your hook either in a TSS way  to keep your stitch pattern intact.

Do not fasten off, chain 1 and sc 3 times into the corner of your dishcloth. Single crochet once in each stitch or row end and make 3 sc stitches in the other corners.

Fasten off.
Enjoy your dishcloth!
