Dishcloth crochet pattern
Dishcloths or washcloths are very quick and easy to crochet. Making a few of them could be a great way to practice your stitches.
This crochet pattern uses a simple repeat to give you a great texture. Make a few to match your kitchen decor and you have something that looks good and is useful too.
Use them to wash your dishes or clean your kitchen surfaces. Dishcloths should always be made using 100% cotton yarn. I used Lily Sugar n Cream for the samples.
The ones I made are an 8-inch square. You can make them bigger if you like. I prefer keeping mine small as they are easy to wash that way.
1. Worsted weight cotton yarn. Lily sugar n cream in colors soft Ecru, Hot Blue and Yellow were used for the samples.
2. Hook H(5 mm)
3. Yarn needle for weaving in the ends
Finished Size
 8 X 8 inch square
