As promised, here is my FREE crochet pattern for a bouncy bubbly dishcloth. The texture of the cloth makes this for a natural dish scrubbie.
The pattern is for a smaller dishcloth, but you could easily increase the size and crochet up a placemat or even a kitchen rug.
The previous pattern with this stitch was this Bouncy Bubbly Kitchen Towel.

Special Stitch Instructions:
Bead St: Insert hk into indicated st, yo and pull through, (yo and pull through one lp on hk) twice, yo and pull through both lps on hk. When you work into the next stitch make sure the bobble is facing the right side.
Ch-1 made at end of row counts as turning ch.
Keep your ch-1’s loose as the bead st is worked directly into the ch-1, and NOT into the ch-1 sp.
Ch 20 (or any multiple of 2),
Row 1(WS): (Sc, ch 1) in 2nd ch from hk, *sk next ch, (sc, ch 1) in next ch, rep from * across. (9 ch-1 sps) Turn.
