Need an easy crochet dishcloth pattern? This is the very first and the most popular of my crochet dishcloth patterns I have created. Find out why I started crocheting and enjoy the pattern.
I have started hookin’ and love it! Crocheting that is.
It all started with my sister getting married. She had basically nothing for her kitchen. She made the comment she didn’t really have any dishcloths. I looked around and didn’t really find any that I wanted to give her so I decided I would crochet some to give her.
I spent hours looking through you tube videos and I taught myself how to crochet. I have to admit, I really enjoy it. I didn’t stop with dishcloths. I went on to make her hot pads and a scrubbie as well.
I found a pattern I liked but it I modified it to fit what I wanted. I thought I would share my pattern with you all.
I have also included a tip on how to edge your work. This was the hardest part for me. It took many google and you tube searches to figure out how to edge the sides so that the work didn’t “grow”. I had more of a bone shaped dishcloth to start with but finally figured it out.LOVE this simple crochet dishcloth pattern!Click To Tweet

WHAT YOU WILL NEED:
- J Hook or 6.00MM Hook
- 100% Worsted Weight Cotton Yarn – I used Peaches and Creme or you can use Sugar and Cream
- Yarn Needle
- CH – Chain
- HDC – Half Double Crochet
- SC – Single Crochet
Row 1: CH 25; HDC into the 3rd CH from the hook; HDC into the remaining stitches of your chain; CH 2 and turn your work.
Row 2-20: HDC into the top of the stitches; CH 2 and turn your work. (Do not CH 2 after row 20 is complete-this is where we apply the edging)
Edging – CH 1 and Turn your work; SC around the dishcloth. Put 3 SC into the corners to help give the dishcloth a rounded corner. After getting all the way around, Slip Stitch and finish off. Then weave the tails into your work.
If you are like me and have no clue how to single stitch into the sides of the Half Double Crochet stitch, here is a tip for you. You put 2 single crochets into area where you chain 2. Here is how I know where to put my stitches, I place a small piece of yarn into that space.
I put one on each side so what to look for on both sides.
Then you just have to pull them out when the time comes. As you can see, your stitches will be off set from each other.
