Crochet dishcloths are so nice! They hold up well and there are so many different patterns available – seriously, So Many! But I thought I would add one more pattern to the mix, because…Why Not? 😉 The So Simple Crochet Dishcloth is just that – so simple! It’s a great pattern for beginners or when you want to whip up a quick project.

I used I Love This Cotton yarn from Hobby Lobby with a G/4mm hook to stitch up my dishcloths. I used White and Lime Dot for my dishcloths. Lime Dot is discontinued, but there are a lot of pretty colors of I Love This Cotton yarn available. And of course you can use any of your favorite cotton yarns to make your own So Simple Dishcloths.
You can find the free pattern below along with a link to a free PDF if you’d like to easily print it.
