The picture on the left is how it is made. The picture on the right shows the texture and ridges.
I have never written out a pattern for any of my creations, but a few people on the 'Ville wanted it, so here it is. I hope you can understand it.
BUMPY TEXTURED DISHCLOTH
Any Cotton yarn and hook size of your choice. I used a K hook so it wouldn’t be such a tight weave.
Make a chain the length you desire (it will be the width).
Row 1: SC in second chain from the hook and each chain across. Chain 1, turn.
Row 2: SC the first 2 stitches together. *Insert hook into the last stitch of the sctog stitch, yo and pull up a loop (2 loops on hook), insert hook into the next stitch, yo and pull up a loop (3 loops on hook), pull hook through all 3 loops on hook. Repeat from * to the end of the row, sc in last stitch (there will be 2 stitches in the last sc). Chain 1, turn.
Repeat Row 2 until desired size is reached.
Last Row: sc in each stitch across.
If desired, you can put a sc border on all 4 sides, or any other border you choose. The sides are even with this pattern, so a border is not necessary unless that is your preference.

Pattern may be copied for personal use, but is not to be sold!
When I do my first row of sc, I like to go into the back bump of the chain. It gives the beginning edge a more finished look. Plus when you do the last row a sc row, the first row and last row matches. That way you don’t have to do an edging unless you want a more finished look. For my dishcloths, I don’t normally put an edging on mine, since it makes it easier to wring them out without one.
If you like this pattern and happen to make one, please let me know.. I'd love to see a picture of your creation.
