You are at:

6 balls of size 10 crochet cotton thread (any colors you like or 6 of the same color)
Crochet hook size I / 9 / 5 MM

Abbreviations: (American Stitches used)
Slip Stitch (sl st)
Chain (ch)
Single Crochet (sc)
Double Crochet (dc)

Notes:When making a Crossover Dc stitch, be sure to work this dc a little looser or with more slack, so that the stitch won't pucker or be too tight.

Another note: If you want to use a larger hook, feel free to do so. Or if you find that 6 strands is a little too bulky for a dishcloth, use 4 or 5 strands instead.

Ch 34.
Row 1: 1 Dc in 4th ch from hook (3 skipped chs count as 1 dc), 1 dc in each ch across; ch 1, turn. (32 dc).
Row 2: 1 Sc in same st as turning, 1 sc in each dc across; ch 3, turn (ch 3 counts as dc on next row now and throughout) (32 sc).

Fasten off and sew in ends well. Use on your dishes and enjoy or give as a gift.
