Quick and Easy Crochet Dishcloth

Hi friends,

You can never have too many dishcloths! 🙂 This pattern is quick and easy to make – perfect for beginners and great to use up cotton yarn leftover from other projects. They also make great little gifts. Tie them up with a pretty ribbon and add a small bottle of dishsoap to a cute basket or bag.

Stitches used US terms:

Chain – ch

Foundation half double crochet – fhdc

Half double crochet – hdc

Note: chain does not count as a stitch.

Row 1: work 25 fhdc. Turn. (25 stitches)

Rows 2-5: ch 1. hdc in each stitch across. Turn. (25 stitches)

Rows 6-12: ch 1. Working in blo, sc in each stitch across. Turn. (25 stitches)

Using I Love This Cotton yarn makes a dishcloth that measures about 7-1/2 by 8-1/2 inches. Lily Sugar and Cream cotton yarn makes a slightly larger dishcloth that measures about 8 by 9 inches.

Make a set of these in your favorite colors to match your kitchen – or to give as a gift.

Happy Stitching!

    Thank you for posting this. I’m making blocks for Warm Up America’s current drive, and these will be great for that. They’re even about the right size. (I’ll probably make some for washcloths for me, too!)
