The technique she used here to create that waffle stitch is the front post double crochet and the back post double crochet. There are lots of YouTube tutorials on it, if you are unfamiliar with it or if you just need a guide or refresher course. Once you get the hang of it, it's not that difficult. And the end result creates the texture needed for quite an absorbent cloth!

Re: Waffle Dishcloth. See abbreviations I do not understand what is meant to do: dc I know is double crochet but dcbp, dcfp, ws, I have no idea what the bp, fp, ws mean.

I believe that dcbp is back post double crochet (BPDC) and dcfp of front post double crochet (FPDC). ws is usually wrong side. I hope this helps.
