Easy Crochet Dishcloth Pattern
My mom and I both were in need of new dishcloths so I decided to whip some up for us. I decided to use the Herringbone Double Crochet stitch for our new dishcloths. I love the texture of this stitch. It has a slight zig-zag design to it that I thought would look pretty as a dishcloth.
I’ve made several of these now and we have both been enjoying using them. Plus, it’s more fun to do the dishes when you have a pretty dishcloth to do them with 🙂
Video Tutorial for the Herringbone Double Crochet Stitch:
- any worsted cotton weight yarn
- a 4.00mm crochet hook
- tapestry needle for weaving in ends
STITCHES USED AND ABBREVIATIONS (US TERMS):
- ch = chain
- yo = yarn over
- HBDC = Herringbone Double Crochet (stitch tutorial HERE)
1″ square = 4 stitches x 2 rows of HBDC
7.25″ x 7.25″ – size is not super important unless you prefer a certain size dishcloth. You can easily add more or less starting chains to suit your preferences 🙂
Written instructions for the easy crochet dishcloth:
Row 1: working into the 3rd ch from the hook, make 1 HBDC. Make 1 HBDC in each ch all the way to the end. Ch 1, turn. (24 HBDC)
Row 2: ch 1 does not count as a stitch. Make 1 HBDC in first st and in each st across. ch 1, turn. (24 HBDC)
Rows 3-16: Repeat Row 2. (24 HBDC)
Fasten off and weave in ends.
