Instead of a smaller dishcloth, I ended up making a bigger washcloth this time. This ended up being 9×8.5 inches.
This crochet washcloth pattern uses the extended single crochet stitch. I found this stitch while browsing through some more crochet stitch books.
It’s a very simple stitch to do, with only an extra loop draw-through compared to the regular single crochet stitch.
