The video tutorial:

Start with 45 chains.
Row 1: In the 2nd chain from the hook crochet a dc, sc in next chain, *dc in next ch, sc in next ch*, repeat *-* until the end of the row;
Row 2: Ch 1, dc in the single crochet of the previous row, sc in the dc of the previous row, *dc in next sc of the previous row, sc in next dc of the previous row*. Repeat *-* until the end of the row.

Make sure to crochet every single crochet stitch in the double crochet of the previous row and the double crochet stitch in the single crochet of the previous row.

Repeat row 2 to complete the pattern. In total crochet 35 rows. Next we’ll crochet the edge in rounds. For the edge we’ll crochet one round of single crochet and then we’ll continue with six rounds of the Apline stitch.

The edge for the crochet dish cloth:

1.Round 1: After you finish row 35 crochet 2 more single crochet in the same stitch as the one you just crocheted. This will be the first corner.  Continue to crochet single crochet, you’ll crochet 1 sc for every row on the length, 3 sc for corners and 1 sc in every stitch for the width. Slip stitch to close the round. You should have 163 stitches.
2. Round 2: ch 2 (don’t count as a dc), dc in the same stitch (in first single crochet of the corner), 3 dc in next stitch (in the 2nd single crochet of the corner) and continue to crochet dc in every stitch and making 3 dc in the second sc of the corners.

Continue repeating *fpdc in the dc below, dc in next stitch* until you reach the next corner.
When you reach the next corner the st before the 3 sc stitches of the previous round should be a double crochet. And crochet the corner as follows: fpdc in the 2nd dc of the corner below, dc in the 2nd sc of the previous round and a fpdc in the same 2nd dc of the corner below as the previous fpdc.

The written pattern for the second Crochet dish wash cloth:

The Chart for the Alpine stitch used for the body of the dish cloth:

I’ve started this dish wash cloth with 46 double crochet chainless foundation. This is how you crochet the double crochet foundation:

  1. Step 1: Crochet 3 chains;

  2. Step 2: Yarn over and insert the hook in first chain you’ve crocheted (3rd ch from the hook) making sure you catch the top 2 loops of the chain and pull through the chain. Now you have 3 loops on the hook. Next yarn over and pull through the first loop, this will be the base chain you’ll make the next double crochet, so if it’s the first time you are making this double crochet foundation stitch you can mark this stitch so it will be easier to see it.

  3. Step 3: Now let’s finish the first double crochet stitch, you’ll still have 3 loops on your crochet and we’ll crochet the double crochet as usual: yarn over, pull through 2 loops, yarn over and pull through 2 loops. This is the first double crochet stitch.

  4. Step 4: Now lets crochet the next double crochet stitch, remember you’ve already made the base for this stitch (see step 2): yarn over and insert the hook in the base chain you’ve crocheted at step two making sure you catch the top 2 loops of the chain and pull through. Now you have 3 loops on the hook. Next yarn over and pull through the first loop, this will be the base chain you’ll make the next double crochet, mark this stitch so it will be easier to see it for the next stitch. Now crochet the double crochet as usual:  yarn over, pull through 2 loops, yarn over and pull through 2 loops.

  5. Step 5: Repeat step 4 until you have all the double crochet stitches you need.

All this steps makes row 1 of the pattern.
If you want to start this dish cloth with chains foundation start with 48 chains and crochet row 1 as it follows: chain 2 (don’t count as a stitch), double crochet in 3rd chain from the hook, continue crocheting double crochet in every chain until the end of the row. So you will have 46 double crochet stitches.
For now on the pattern is the same no matter how you’ve started.
2. Row 2: chain 1 (don’t count as a stitch), single crochet in the same stitch, continue crocheting single crochet in every stitch until the end of the row.
3. Row 3: chain 2 (don’t count as a stitch), *skip the next single crochet and crochet 1 front post double crochet around the double crochet below skipped single crochet, double crochet in next stitch*. Repeat *-* until the end of the row.
4. Row 4: chain 1 (don’t count as a stitch), single crochet in the same stitch, continue crocheting single crochet in every stitch until the end of the row.
5. Row 5: chain 2 ( don’t count as a stitch), double crochet in the same stitch, *skip the next single crochet and crochet 1 front post double crochet around the double crochet below skipped single crochet, double crochet in next stitch*. Repeat *-* to last stitch and in the last stitch of the row crochet .
Repeat the pattern from row 2 until you have 39 rows.

Make sure to crochet every double crochet stitch in the next single crochet stitch of the previous row and every front double crochet in the double crochet bellow. The front post double crochet is worked on the intervening rows, but only on every other stitch.

The edge for the crochet dish cloth:

1. Round 1: After you finish row 39 don’t turn your work and don’t cut the yarn and start to crochet single crochet stitches on the right side. Crochet single crochet around your work making 3 single crochet for corners. Finish the round with 3 sc in the last stitch  and slip stitch in first sc to close the round. You should have 172 stitches.
2. Round 2: ch 1 (don’t count as a stitch), dc in the same stitch; sc in next st, *dc in next stitch, sc in next st*. Repeat *-* until you reach the corners. Crochet the corners as follows:
  • if the 2nd stitch of the corner is a single crochet: dc, sc, dc and a sc in the 3rd stitch of the corner, then continue to repeat *-*.
  • if the 2nd stitch of the corner is a double crochet: sc, dc, sc and a dc in the 3rd stitch of the corner, sc in next stitch, the continue to repeat *-*.
Slip stitch to close the round. On round 2 you should have 180 stitches.
3. Round 3: ch 1 (don’t count as a stitch), sc in the same stitch, *dc in next stitch, sc in next stitch). Repeat *-* making sure to crochet the corners as you did in the previous round. Slip stitch to close the round. You should have 188 stitches.
4. Round 4: repeat round 2; you should have 196 stitches.
5. Round 5: repeat round 3; you should have 204 stitches.
6. Round 6: repeat round 2; you should have 212 stitches.

If you’ve made this crochet dish wash cloth set I recommend to wash the cloths by hand or on the washing machine at maximum 40 Celsius degrees; I prefer 30 Celsius degrees for all my cotton items. Dry it flat and then iron it choosing the temperature for cotton.
