Pie Dishcloths

I could not think of a better name for these round dishcloths, they have eight sections worked in them, like eight slices of pie. I made these using left of Red Heart Super Saver Yarn, so these would make better dust cloths than dishcloths.

I did write up a pattern for these dishcloths, you might notice that the stripping is different in a couple of them. The pink and green one and the blue and multi-colored one have strips that don't intersect as the rest of them do. The directions for these are going to be in parenthesis.

So here is the pattern:

Using worsted weight yarn and a G hook:

Ch 16(19)

Working in back loops:

Row 1: Sc in 2 ch from hook, sc across, Ch 1 ,turn

Row 2: Sc across, ch 1, turn

Row 3: Sc in the next 12 (15),ch 1, turn

Row 4: Sc across, ch 1, turn

Row 5: Sc in next 9(12), ch 1, turn

Row 6: Sc across, ch 1, turn

Row 7: Sc in next 6(9), ch 1, turn

Row 8: Sc across, ch 1, turn

Row 9: Sc in next 3(6), ch 1, turn

Row 10: Sc across, ch 1, turn

Row 11: (for parenthesis) Sc in next 3, ch 1, turn

Row 12: (for parenthesis) Sc across, ch 1, turn

Row 11: (13): Working down the skipped sc’s from previous rows, Sc in the next 15 (18) sc’s

Row 12: (14):Sc across

Repeat Rows 3-12 (14) 6 more times. Repeat rows 3-11 (13) once more

For the out edge,3 sc for each 2 rows (or ridge)

Sew up the seam; this could be tricky because you have a straight edge on one side and “stairs” on the other side. You are sewing up the tops of the sc’s only.


  1. I seriously dig the dishcloth we got for Christmas; it's got a lot of texture, which I'm finding really useful for most my kitchen-cleaning needs. :D

    These are cute!

  2. These are adorable! must go make some... soon?

  3. these are really cool! I'm printing the pattern right now and will make a few soon :)

  4. Found this through the AllFreeCrochet newsletter ... very cool! I'm assuming we need to switch back and forth between the two colors at every row? Can't wait to try this!
