50 Minute Textured Dish Cloth-Crochet

Yep, the name drew me in, I love quick projects! The simple pattern for this 50 Minute Textured Dish Cloth is great and the whole thing is single crochet. Ma called to say that Walmart reduced some Peaches & Cream yarn to $1, I thought these sherbet colors were yummy and fun for summer!

This pattern is worked from the corner (started lower right) and as you can see, I had some difficulty with the decreasing and keeping it square. 
Any tips on keeping track of where the rows should start/end? 
I ripped it out a couple times and really tried to pay attention... that helped a little:@)
 I'm sure you're wondering... did it take me 50 minutes? No, at least double that but only because I'm so new to crochet. Do I believe it can be done in 50 minutes? Absolutely! Pattern HERE.

Updated: I just had to try this again. This time I used a 'J' hook (used 'I' for the first one) and watched a video to learn to properly decrease... While still not perfect, this one's much better, and it took 1 1/2 hours. I really do like this pattern!
 Have a happy day:@)

  1. What a pretty assortment of colors. I can't believe you could do this in 50 minutes. It would take me 50 days :)

  2. Looks cute, Lynn, and I love the summery colors. I will check out the pattern as I love crocheted dishcloths. I don't think I could ever finish in that time frame, though. Happy weekend!

  3. You are so clever, this would probably take me a week, although I have no idea how to crochet. My aunt used to make these and I loved them! They lasted forever!

  4. Very pretty! I've never worked diagonally like that but it's a really nice pattern. When winter rolls around I'll get my crochet hooks out again :)

  5. Glorious colors of summer...and waaay too pretty to use at the sink!
    I can't help you with directions...I used to crochet years ago but I think I've forgotten everything. I might look for this pretty yarn next visit to WM, just to see if I could do it, though. I LOVE THESE DISHCLOTHS!
    I think I told you my FL neighbor made one for me & I use it all the time.

  7. If you figure it out, please make me one and I'll come pick it up. That would be much quicker than if I tried to crochet one myself. Love the colors. They make me want to have a dreamsicle.

    Best,

  9. I would never guess that you are a beginner to crochet, Lynn! Your creations are always so perfectly made. This is pretty and practical too!

  10. Now I don't feel so alone. Every time I have done crochet, it has gone all wonky on me too. There must be some trick to making sure that you end where you are supposed to..but I sure don't know what it is. xo

  11. Very cool! I like the pattern at an angle. I haven't done very much with increase and decreasing in a pattern. I might try this one though. Thanks for sharing!

  13. I think they look fantastic. I use these old fashioned dish clothes all the time. Don't you like how pretty they looked stacked in the draw?

  14. Good for you, Lynn. I'm just learning to crochet too and keeping the rows straight and not losing stitches is the hardest part. Love those little crocheted dish cloths. My friend gave me several for Christmas and I really like them.
