If you are new to crochet or would like to learn how to crochet, making a dishcloth is a great way to start. It’s small, doesn’t require a lot of supplies and can be any size. It’s not like a garment that won’t fit if you make a bit too big or small. I really like the texture of the stitches used here, it’s in a lot of my patterns including my mug cozy (may post that pattern in the future) my flowered baby beanie, and a baby blanket(available as a free download on Ravelry).
Here we go…
Skill level: Easy
- ch – chain
- sc – single crochet
- dc – double crochet
- sk – skip
- Cotton worsted weight yarn – 50g
- Crochet hook – Size I/5.00mm
- Blunt needle
Gauge: Not important
Finished measurements: 8″ x 9″ (approximate, will depend on your tension but not important)
Row 1 1sc 1dc in second ch from hook, *sk next ch, 1sc 1dc in next ch. Repeat from * to end of row. Ch 1 and turn.
Row 2 *Sk 1st st, 1 sc 1dc in next st, repeat from * to end of row. Ch1 and turn.
Repeat Row 2 until work measures 8″ from beginning.
Work 1 round of sc evenly around entire cloth, working 3 sc in the corners.
Fasten off and weave in ends. That’s it!!
If you have no inclination to crochet, but would like a set of these cute dishcloths, you can purchase them in my Brooklin Girl shop.
I also have additional patterns for sale in right here on my blog (look over there on the right hand side), and in my Bubblegirl shop.
Let me know how it goes, I’d love to hear from you 🙂
