Crochet Dishcloths … 4 Quick and Easy Crochet Dishcloth Patterns

Print Friendly

I love making crochet dishcloths, especially in the summer! They are a great take-along project and work up quickly. Plus, there is such a simple pleasure that can be had from using a handmade dishcloth. They are also perfect to give as gifts … just add some scented soap in a little basket and you have the perfect housewarming or hostess gift!

Crochet Dishcloths to Learn New Stitches and Techniques

Dishcloths are also great for practicing different stitches and stitch combinations. In fact, in my crochet workshops, once I’m done working with students through the Learn to Crochet series, our first projects are dishcloths. I specifically designed these dishcloths to help my students learn new skills and techniques including

  • counting and identifying stitches
  • working stitch combinations
  • changing colors
  • working in the round
  • creating an edging

And you know what? These crochet dishcloths continue being favorite projects even after the skills have been mastered. So break out that cotton yarn and get stitching!

    I love dishcloths, too. These are lovely.

      Thanks, Sheriva 🙂

      While this seems like a very beautiful pattern, I am confused…I seem to be getting less stitches as I go. There are no chains between the [sc1 and dc1] and the skipped stitches? Help 🙁

      • Kara November 10, 2014 at 7:31 pm #

        Hi Christine 🙂 which pattern are you working on?

    Cute patterns! I have some cotton laying around so I will be definately trying to follow!
    One question though: on what kind of temperature do you wash them in the washing machine (front loader)?

    • Leslie June 26, 2013 at 7:04 pm #

      I have washed mine several times in my front loading washer on the regular/normal cycle using warm water. They hold up really well!

      • Kara June 26, 2013 at 9:58 pm #

        Thanks, Leslie!

    • Kara June 26, 2013 at 10:17 pm #

      Hi Barbara 🙂 I just throw them in with the rest of my towels and rags on warm or hot and they come out nicely.

  5. Marilyn June 26, 2013 at 6:59 am #
