Since I have been learning crochet, I find making crochet dishcloth patterns are the easiest pattern to create. This textured half double crochet dishcloth is a great way to practice front and back loop stitches.
I previously did a half double crochet dishcloth that was straight half double crochets back and forth. It was the first pattern I ever made.
The textured half double crochet pattern differs by placing each half double crochet stitch in either of the front loop or the back loop.
Textured Half Double Crochet Dishcloth Pattern
WHAT YOU WILL NEED:
- 100% Cotton Yarn
- H Crochet Hook
- Yarn Needle
Row 1: Chain 30. Half Double Crochet in the 3rd chain from your hook. Continue with half double crochets to the end. Turn your work
Row 2 – 19: Chain 2. *Half Double Crochet in the front loop, Half Double Crochet in the back loop.* Repeat from * to * until the end. Turn your work.
Row 20: Chain 2. *Half Double Crochet in the front loop, Half Double Crochet in the back loop.* Repeat from * to * until the end. Turn your work.
Edging: Chain 1. Single Crochet around your dishcloth.
By putting the stitches in the front and back loops alternating, it allows the dishcloth to have a little bit of a texture.
