Free textured crochet dishcloth/washcloth pattern


I am sure I have said this more than once but I adore handmade dishcloths.Today I thought I’d share with you my free easy crochet dishcloth pattern.  It’s my favorite dish cloth pattern as well.

Cotton dishcloths have become enormously popular, especially considering the trend to try and protect the environment by cutting down on paper products wherever possible.  Crochet dishcloths are practical, beautiful and functional
Cotton is the preferred yarn for dishcloths and facecloths, because it is water absorbent and machine washable.

Yarn:  Rico design fashion summer yarn. 50g 65m orange ,1 ball

  1. Great dishcloths, the bright colour is stunning. I do a lot for selling at craft fairs and for little gifts. Have a great week.

  2. I love hand knit or crocheted dishcloths. Have you tried using bamboo? It's excellentf or dishcloths. Similar properties as cotton but bamboo is also naturally anti-bacterial.

    Thanks for this lovely pattern.

  3. I've been wanting to make some cloths for household use and these look really nice. Thank you so much for sharing the pattern.

  4. I always knit my dishcloths, they stand up to so much more than bought cloths. I've never used such a pretty pattern or such pretty yarn though, I shall have to give this a try.

  5. Thankyou for this pattern. Dishcloths are on my "to make" list and I'm going to pick some bright colours like yours, they're so cheerful!

  6. Hello my dear and what a bright and cheerful dishcloth. I am actually making one whilst we are away this holidays, now I am just feeling a little tempted. I hope you are keeping well. Sending you much love and thank you for sharing xoxo
