Bring a farmhouse feel to your kitchen with these crochet dishcloths. They are durable and the stitch design is great for scrubbing power.

Crochet dishcloths are the perfect project for crochet beginners. You can practice basic crocheting while also completing a practical item for the home.

This crochet dishcloth pattern was created using Bernat Handicrafter cotton yarn and a 5.5mm crochet hook. The pattern is made up of single crochet and double crochet stitches.

Start by creating your foundation chain. Once your foundation chain is complete, you will begin by making a double crochet stitch in the third chain from the hook.

The rest of the pattern is created by single crochet and double crochet pair in the same stitch.

When starting a new row make sure you place your double crochet in the first stitch. 

The arrow below shows the stitch where you place the single crochet and the double crochet. 

You are skipping the double crochet from the previous row and placing a single and double crochet in the single crochets from the previous row. 

Textured Crochet Dishcloth 


  • You can make your dishcloth larger by creating a longer foundation chain and adding more rows. Make sure you are using a multiple of two plus 1 and then plus 2 for the foundation chain.
  • If you would like to add a border to your dishcloth, you can single crochet around the edges of the cloth.


Alternate cotton yarns:


Multiple of 2 + 1, plus 2 for the foundation chain

Chain 31

Row 1: DC in 3rd chain from hook, skip one chain, SC and DC in next chain Repeat until the last 2 stitches, skip one chain, SC in last stitch, Chain 1 and turn.

Row 2: DC in that same stitch, Skip the next DC, SC, DC in the next stitch Repeat until the last two stitches, skip one, and SC in the turning chain, chain 1 and turn.

Row 3: Repeat row 2. Until your dishcloth measures 9 inches

Final measurement of the dish cloth is about 9″ to 9″-9.5″
