Free Scrubby Crochet Dishcloth Patterns

These scrubby dishcloths are the perfect all purpose cleaning cloths. They are double sided with a gentle cotton side for nonabrasive cleaning and a scrubby side for tougher jobs. Make a set for yourself or to give as a gift. Best of all, you can just throw them in the wash when you’re done and they’re good as new! Two sizes of these crochet dishcloth patterns are included below.

We are going to work the scrubby yarn on the ridged side of the dishcloth, that is, the side that shows the empty loops from each row.

Starting from the bottom right, pull up a loop of the scrubby yarn in the first loop, ch 1 and work a sc in same loop, work 1 sc in each loop across, turn.

Ch 1, work 1 sc in each loop across.

Repeat for each row.

    How can I print this pattern out

    • Kara August 7, 2016 at 8:38 am #

      Hi Mary 🙂 at the bottom of the post are two small icons. One is to print and the other is to save as a PDF. Hope that helps!

        I don’t see the icons you refer to. Are they gone…?

        • Kara November 30, 2017 at 10:18 am #

          No, the print icon is still there on the top left of the post.

    What do the numbers behind the stitch count in parentheses mean?

    • Kara December 12, 2016 at 10:00 am #

      The stitch count is for the small washcloth, with changes for a larger size in parentheses.

    I made my first one and can’t wait to make more! I love this pattern, the simplicity is amazing! Thank you thank you!

    When you start to crochet with the scrubby yarn, at the end of the first row when it says “turn” does that mean to rotate or turn over to the other side of the dishcloth? Thanks so much.
