I love working up these crochet dishcloth patterns, especially in the summer. Crochet dishcloths are lightweight enough to be a great take-along project and work up quickly too. I find such satisfaction in making something pretty and useful in such a small amount of time! Plus, there is such a simple pleasure that can be had from using handmade dishcloths.
And don’t stop at just one … they are also perfect to give as gifts! Add some scented soap or a wooden spoon set 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!
