6 Crochet Dishcloth Patterns
Dishcloths are a great way to learn new crochet stitches, patterns or techniques before jumping into a full-size throw or blanket, or great if you’re looking for something quick to work on. They’re not a huge project so it doesn’t get overwhelming or feel like each row is taking forever.
Dishcloths patterns are also a very practical project for more than just learning new stitches, they can be used in the bathroom or kitchen as decoration or just simply give them as gifts.
I don’t know if making your dishcloths is any cheaper than buying a package of store ones, but it is more fun and you can make them fit your personality as well as more fun colour choices.
Tunisian Simple Stitch Crochet Dishcloth Pattern
Tunisian stitch is one that I haven’t tried yet, but it is on my crochet bucket list. I love the look patterns that I have seen done in it. This Tunisian Simple Stitch Crochet Dishcloth Pattern is a great starting point if like me you are just learning the stitch. I like that the dishcloth is nice and small so when I inevitably end up having to frog it for the 10th time before it finally sinks in what I’m supposed to be doing, even though Mikey has shown me a couple of times already. I know I will become obsessed with Tunisian.
This beginner-friendly Tunisian Simple Stitch Dishcloth was made using Lily Sugar’n Cream, if you have another cotton like the Handicrafter that is fine too, the pattern also has the diagram for the flower if you wanted to add that as well.
Thankful Thursday Crochet Dishcloth Pattern
This Thankful Thursday Crochet Dishcloths Pattern has a pattern for 2 different textured dishcloths included, make them all for your kitchen or bathroom or work up just one in one of the 3 stitches in the pattern.
The Bobble Version would be a good one for washing your face. The Arruga stitch is not one I think I have done, the name doesn’t sound familiar to me, but it looks like a super easy repeat, giving you a great texture for washing dishes. the third is the V-stitch, it’s one of my favourites to do.
This easy little bungle of dishcloth patterns are made in the Bernat Handicraft, I may have to work up some later in a couple of colours some of my crochet dishcloths need refreshing. these would all also make lovely stitches for a simple blanket too.
