#125 Framed Puff Stitch Crochet Dishcloth – Maggie Weldon Maggies Crochet

Designer Kathleen Stuart wrote: “The Framed Puff Stitch dishcloth is another idea from a baby afghan that I designed. When I originally designed the pattern, you needed to cut the yarn after each row. This time instead of cutting the yarn after every row, I left a loop from the working color, removed the hook and started the next row. I really don’t like weaving in ends, so this solved my problem. I also added a fun border to this dishcloth using chain loops. This dishcloth is reversible, with a very different look on each side.”
Thank you Kathleen.  Follow me to dishcloth #126 and the rest of the story…

    The first part of Row 2 seems to be missing!

    Hi Maggie….me again
    As stated before love this challange! Since I am an elderly lady I like to have my patterns in print and keep them in a binder. I have been printing all of the dishcloths pattern, but have been a little disappointed since this websight has started. When I print from here it does not include the number of the cloth i.e 125 etc.
    Is there anyway to change this. Would be much appreciated.

    Thanks Jan

    I’m I just missing something because I have a cold but I don’t see row 2.

    All of the other dishcloths directions were written in a pdf file – this one is not. Is there any way that you can do that. I have them all saved that way and they are much easier to save if in a pdf file. Thanks!!!

    ALL RIGHT !!! Finally, the format for printing has been changed back (with a few better modifications) so the pattern prints not only “Best Free Crochet” but the number and name of the dishcloth !!! Thanks, Maggie, you’ve done an outstanding job with this. It’s much appreciated.
