  1. Like the pattern. I got to the second row and it curls. Checked the following rows and do not see any increases. How does it lay flat. Am I missing something?

    • The increases happen between the fpdc posts. In Row 3 you sc once between them, row four sc twice between them, row 5 sc three times between them, row 6 sc 4 times between them and row 7 sc 5 times between the posts. As long as you make sure to sound the stitches between the post your dishcloth should increase and lay flat. Let me know if you have any other questions.

      • That is not in the pattern at all. I had the same issue – there are no increases in the pattern. Could you please update the pattern to show where the sc stitches are to be placed?

  2. Love the dishcloth and the matching coasters. Thanks from your fellow Michigander. (I’m in Flint). I just followed your site.
