Crochet White Cotton Ribbed Dishcloth

I love using crochet cotton dishcloths. They are generally thicker than store bought ones and last a lot longer. My favorite cotton yarn to use is I Love This Cotton from Hobby Lobby. It is so soft and easy to work with. And in case you didn’t know – they have been putting all their yarn on sale for 30% off about every other week!

Here’s a simple pattern I created that works up super fast and can be made in any color.

White Cotton Ribbed Dishcloth

Stitches used (US terms):

  • Chain – ch
  • Double Crochet – dc
  • Back Loop Only – blo
  • Single Crochet – sc
  • Slip Stitch – ss

I Love This Cotton Yarn in White

H/5mm hook

Ch 25

Row 1: Dc in 3rd ch from hook and each ch across, turn. (23 stitches)

Rows 2-3: ch 3, skip 1st dc. Dc in back loop only (blo) of each dc across ending with dc in top of ch 3 of previous row, turn. (23 stitches)

Rows 4-6: ch 1, sc in each stitch across, turn. (23 stitches)

Rows 7-9: ch 3, skip 1st stitch. Dc in blo of each stitch across, turn. (23 stitches)

Rows 10-12: Repeat rows 4-6 (23 stitches)

Rows 13-15: Repeat rows 7-9 (23 stitches) DO NOT TURN at the end of row 15


Round 1: ch 1, sc evenly around dish cloth, working 3 sc in each corner. Join with ss to 1st sc.

Rounds 2-3: ch 1, sc in each stitch around, working 3 sc in each corner. Join with ss to 1st sc.

Fasten off and weave in ends.

Finished size is about 7 1/2-inches by 8-inches.

I hope you enjoy this simple pattern – Happy Stitching!

    Thanks for the pattern. My late mother used to knit a lot of these and they are the only ones I use and I have been wanting to crochet some.
