Free Dishcloth pattern

Hi everyone! I am knitting up some dishcloths and never could follow a pattern up exactly....
Here is one I made after not being able to do another and just doing my thing instead:

CO 36 sts. knit across first 3 rows. Now next row is Row 1: a multiple of 5....so * purl 5, knit 5* across (but always knit first 3 sts and last 3 sts for your border). Row 2 is border,* knit 5, k1, p3,k1,* across until border. Row3: is border, *p5, p2, k1, p2,* across until border. Row 4: is border, knit across, border. Next I shift the multiples of five so I will have little triangles on different points.....
row5: border, *k5, p5*across to border. Row6: border, *p5, p1, k3, p1* across to border.
row 7: border, *k5, k2, p1, k2*across to border. Row 8: border, purl across, border.
now just repeat rows 1-8 until desired length and last few rows just knit across and cast off.
Just put in mind its a pattern of five and each side of the triangle decreases by one and it'll become mindless knitting!
Alternatives: I did one with a seed stitch edge/border. also you can put more plain rows in between the triangle rows. And you can add more stitches to make it bigger as well or even use a seven based unit instead of the five based one I did.
