I made a bunch of these. The pattern is really easy to extend, so I added extra rounds and made placemats for my table. We love them. This is a great pattern for gifts, craft sales, etc. They work up very quickly, and you can use up the leftovers from your other projects to make them.

I agree with BeckySue below when she said it would make great door prizes for a bridal shower. Something I didn't think about! I always have so much fun choosing all my colors. There is no wrong way to do it. If you want to stick to a color scheme to match your decor you can do that. Or, go cray-cray and make them in random, bright, colors of the rainbow.

These are so cute! I will try making them, but I dont think it matters if the flowers are a bit different. That just adds to the cuteness! I think these would make a nice door prize at bridal shower. Something more modest for those who prefer to keep the party G rated! lol

What is dcfp?

Hi there, dcfp stands for Double Crochet Front Post. Hope that helps! - Julia from FaveCrafts

I hope you can make a diagram for all the patterns which would make it easier to follow.

Hi there, I checked on the original pattern and unfortunately there is not a diagram. If you have specific questions related to this pattern, I suggest contacting the designer, Lily Sugar n' Cream. Thanks! - Julia from FaveCrafts

These are quick and easy! I made three of them in my mother's kitchen colors, initially planning on giving them to her for Christmas. I have since learned they make perfect travel size washcloths, and dishcloths to take to work to wash up my few lunchbox dishes! THEY ARE WONDERFUL!! I'll definitely be making more

This dishcloth needs to be bigger. How can I add at least 2 more rows to this?

I thought it needed to be a bit bigger also. So I added a row of half double crochet by starting the next row with CH 2 and then doing a half double crochet in each of next 10 DC, sc in dcfp, repeating around. This made the dishcloth bigger and laid a bit flatter. I will be making more. Learning the dcfp was tricky, don't know if I got it right .... but I like my finished product.

what am I doing wrong? I wish I could take a picture of my work, but I can't. My stitched work looks like a pointed 5 sided granny square. No where does it say to slip stitch in the same space around to make it not pointy and also no where does it tell me to turn my work, but it wouldn't work in the stitch guide if I didn't turn my work. I went wrong after round 4 I think. Help if you can.

dcfp =double crochet front post.

I made 3 of these. They are fun, pretty and easy to make.

@crazycrocheter48 I'm so glad you like them! Thanks for the comment! :)

I agree. "help". I do know what dcfp stands for. I can only guess dc is double crochet but "fp"? (front post?)

Yes, dcfp means double crochet front post. You can search for how-to videos on youtube

Help it says "Dcfp in next dc" on the 5th Rnd - Waht is Dcfp??????

Found the answer at www.sugarcream.com/Abbreviations/ You (yarn over hook) and draw up a loop around post of next stitch at back of work inserting hook from right to left. You and draw through 2 loops on hoop twice = 1 dcfp made.
