  6. Ana BC July 2, 2013 at 7:05 am #

    I have done a similar ST, with dc and sc, but never with hdc and sl st. It looks WONDERFUL!!! Thanks, Kara :-)

    • Kara July 3, 2013 at 11:15 am #

      Thanks, Ana!

  7. Marilyn July 2, 2013 at 10:21 am #

    Kara, I’ve knit my share of dishcloths but I’ve never crocheted one. This stitch looks like a good one to try! Thanks so much for sharing!

    • Kara July 3, 2013 at 11:15 am #

      Thanks, Marilyn :)

    Kara, Thank you for posting these beautiful dishcloth patterns, I will have to try these, I usually just do the traditional ones, but these are much pretty and they look easy to do.

    • Kara July 9, 2013 at 11:01 am #

      Hope you enjoy them :)

  16. Donna July 9, 2013 at 9:09 am #

    Hi Kara
    I love this crochet pattern. I am going to try this out what weight of cotton yarn did you use?

    • Kara July 9, 2013 at 10:55 am #

      Hi Donna :) So glad you want to try it! I used a worsted weight cotton for this.

  17. Katherine July 9, 2013 at 5:40 pm #

    Hi! Just printed out the pattern! Thank you for sharing! :-)

    • Kara July 10, 2013 at 10:44 pm #

      My pleasure! Enjoy :)

  18. Lisa S. July 10, 2013 at 3:04 pm #

    Love the look of this stitch. I have a set of square potted plants and these would make great “coasters” for them. Thanks for the pattern.

    • Kara July 10, 2013 at 10:13 pm #

      Hope you enjoy it!

  19. Tamara - Moogly July 15, 2013 at 6:42 pm #

    Very pretty! Thanks so much for linking up on Hookin On Hump Day!

  20. Joanne July 20, 2013 at 1:29 pm #

    Golly, Thank you so much…..been looking for a pattern like this…. I love hdc…it makes such a pretty look. I will be getting to it soon. Made many before …but with just the flat pattern….Thanks again.;)

  21. Ann July 31, 2013 at 4:28 pm #

    Can hardly wait to start making these. They look so pretty. Thank you for the patterns.

    • Kara July 31, 2013 at 10:52 pm #

      My pleasure :) Hope you enjoy them!

  22. Mearla VanDenBerg July 31, 2013 at 9:17 pm #

    This whole set of dishcloths would make a perfect housewarming or wedding gift, especially if you know their preferred colors. The textures are not only pretty, but would be good for scrubbing! Lol! Thank you so much for sharing! And, you’re right, it’s a good way to learn new stitches!

    • Kara July 31, 2013 at 10:51 pm #

      So glad you like them :)

  23. Viki August 16, 2013 at 7:59 pm #

    I read all the comments but I didn’t see a request for the stitch multiple. In other words, I like the design SO MUCH, I would like to use “afghan” yarn to make an afghan, so obviously I would have to chain many more! Do you know how many stitches to increase by for each “design”? Thanks.

    • Kara August 17, 2013 at 3:17 pm #

      Hi Viki :) Just start with a chain of an even number of stitches and work the pattern the same. Hope that helps!

  24. speedwell August 17, 2013 at 8:01 am #

    I’m saving this wonderful page not because I love to crochet dishcloths (I hate them lol) but because of the gorgeous stitch patterns. They look like cabled knitting. I want to make a sweater for my guy and these patterns look distinctly dense, warm, and masculine, at least to me! I think the three-color ones are reversible. What about the textures?

    • Kara August 17, 2013 at 3:15 pm #

      I am glad to hear that!! I think it would make a perfect sweater pattern too :)

  25. Lissy November 8, 2013 at 11:25 am #

    Hello, I really love these dishcloth designs, and also the new Tunisian washcloth pattern that’s coming up. Would it be possible for me to sell the finished items on my Etsy shop, please?
    Thank you for your help and your lovely patterns.
    Lissy

    • Kara November 8, 2013 at 4:22 pm #

      Hi Lissy :) Yes, you may absolutely sell any items you make from any of my patterns. I would love if you would give me credit for the pattern. If you send me the link to your listing, I would be happy to share it on my Facebook page. Good luck!

  26. tewey December 3, 2013 at 9:33 am #

    when you move on to row 3,do you chain two before stating the row or just turn and slip stitch to start this particular row?

    • Kimberly January 12, 2014 at 12:54 am #

      I have this question too. Chaining 2 on only one turn on one side made that edge/side uneven/longer.

      • Kara January 14, 2014 at 10:39 pm #

        Hi Kimberly :) You shouldn’t end up with uneven sides. Row 2 begins and ends with a hdc, and Row 3 begins and ends with a Sl st. This should keep the sides consistent as you do. Just make sure you are working the last Sl st from Row 3 in the top of your beginning chain from the previous row. Hope this helps :)

    • Kara January 14, 2014 at 10:51 pm #

      Hi Tewey :) Nope, you don’t need to ch before starting Row 2. Just Sl st. Hope that helps :)

  27. kim December 12, 2013 at 1:00 am #

    Hi. Im just s beginner, what do all the abbreviations mean?

  28. Lisa December 16, 2013 at 9:12 am #

    Oooh!!! These would be fabulous to make for Christmas gifts!! A great touch for a useful basket of goodies!!

    • Kara December 17, 2013 at 11:35 pm #

      I think so too!

  29. Barb December 22, 2013 at 12:03 pm #

    You say you have used worsted yarn for the dishcloths, but how many balls did you use for one? Thank you.

    • Kara December 22, 2013 at 12:21 pm #

      This uses less than 1 ball to make a washcloth :)

  30. Joanna Sormunen January 9, 2014 at 1:49 pm #

    These look so much fun! I need to go to your Pinteres with time in my hands. I already pinned some, though.

    • Kara January 14, 2014 at 10:42 pm #

      Thanks, Joanna :)

  31. Susie W. March 2, 2014 at 10:58 pm #

    I am just loving your Crunchy Stitch Crochet Dishcloth!! I made my first one several days ago and love the texture of it. It absorbs water wonderfully and feels great while using it. Now I find myself addicted to making more in bright pretty colors. I left off the edging tho and love having it just a tad bit smaller. I’ve made several for my daughter and am now thinking of who else I can give these too, lol. Thanks so much for your time and talent by providing these patterns for us. ;)
    Here’s the link to my facebook page showing my dishcloth.

  32. Andrea March 5, 2014 at 1:40 am #

    I just finished this one too! I have made 3 of your 4 summer kitchen cloth patterns. I know I will finish the other one tomorrow during my boy’s school lessons.

    Have a fabulous day!

    Andrea

    • Kara March 5, 2014 at 9:02 am #

      So happy to hear that you are enjoying them, Andrea!

  33. Sharon April 28, 2014 at 2:19 pm #

    For some reason every time I get to the end of the odd numbered row I’m missing the last stitch so that I can do a slip stitch into it. I know I have the correct number of stitches on each row. Just not sure what I’m missing. I’m a beginner if I didn’t give that away with my problem ;-)

    • Kara May 1, 2014 at 10:12 pm #

      Hi Sharon :) Are you making sure to work in your turning chain?

  34. Shelly May 7, 2014 at 10:59 pm #

    I made another, in a rectangular shape. So quick/giving as a Mother’s Day gift w some soaps.

  35. Joan Wharff May 30, 2014 at 1:37 pm #

    Love this pattern! I was doodling last week…..&, ended up making a nice cuddly scarf ! My little granddaughter liked it &, told me she wants a scarf made like it

    • Kara June 5, 2014 at 3:46 pm #

      Sounds so pretty. So glad it gave you some inspiration!

  36. Denise June 2, 2014 at 12:21 am #

    Kara,
    I’ve made a few of the dish cloths with a knit pattern, but I’m a lot slower working with two needles vs 1 hook. Thanks for sharing this beautiful pattern with us. I’m going to tear out the granny square cloth I started and get going on your pattern. I’m sooo excited.
    Denise
