The Three Color Simple Stitch Crochet Dishcloth is the next in our 4 Quick and Easy Crochet Dishcloth Patterns series. Although the stitch pattern is simple, the color changes give this dishcloth a bright and cheery look. Of course if you prefer it can be worked all in one color too!

Finally, I found this to crochet Textured Dishcloth and Simple Stitch Dishcloth with Premier Home Cotton with rainbow. Beautiful. I tried to paste a picture of 2 completed dishcloths but I could not.

How do you go about joining colors?
Hi love the colors you used. If you don’t mind me asking what is the color names you used? I have those colors but they don’t seem to be the right shades and look awful together. Lol.
Hi Victoria 🙂 Unfortunately, this yarn has been discontinued by Knit Picks … it was their organic cotton.
For those of us who don’t understand the chrochet symbols, it would be nice if we had a chart or something to learn the stitches!

Is the Happy Crochet Dishcloth Pattern the same as the textured dishcloth? I like to add everything I make to Ravelry but can’t find it on your page in Ravelry. Thanks
I actually forgot to add that one to Ravelry!! Thanks so much for the heads up … I added it now … http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/happy-dishcloth-2
Hi, I love these patterns and the pretty colors. What kind of yarn did you use for these?
Why is it so hard to print here? I did get one pattern printed but oh my I sure didn’t want a pic the size of my paper. Isn’t there a way to print smaller pics?
thanks so much
Hi Gloria 🙂 At the bottom of the post there is a printing icon. It should let you choose and eliminate parts of the post you can print. Hope that helps.
On this one do you have to cut the yarn when changing each row or do you just carry it up the side?
You can just carry it up the side. Nice and easy 🙂
I wish I had read the comments first… I have thought about carrying up the side, but I didn’t figure out how to it could be done, and never saw anyone do it on a tutorial. Now I have a beautiful dishcloth with 21 ends left to weave in… (sniff) :,(
These are beautiful when first made. However, they stretch terribly when wet, and when washed, and dried, come back in a rectangle, not a square. wish I had made and used a prototype bedpforehand!Imade about 25 of them as gifts! But the recipients still seemed to like them.
My stitches tend to stretch when wet and when I’m using them but the stitches tighten back up again right after I wash and dry it.
Kara, where do you find your inspiration for crochet patterns? Yours are always simply beautiful!
Awww … you are always so sweet to me, Marilyn!
When will you post the other dishcloth patterns. Really would like to make the hole set. Thanks Annie.
Hi Annie 🙂 I will have a new one each week. Hope you’re enjoying them so far!
