Free Crochet Dishcloth Pattern

Homemade dishcloths are the best! Both crochet and knit varieties make great gifts and last forever, holding up through repeated beatings in the washer and dryer, not to mention what they go through in the kitchen.

I’m no designer, but I played around with a favorite crochet stitch and threw this little number together very quickly. Some friends on C’ville helped by testing the pattern and here is a pic of the final result by bajr

The pattern is here:

Free Crochet Pattern for Gentle Ridges Dishcloth

I prefer a crochet dishcloth that has a little bit of a raised stitch and even have a few set aside that I use as washcloths – they’re great in the bath for gentle exfoliating without being too rough. I think this pattern will work well in the bath as well as the kitchen.

Here are the two that I did. They were fun to do and worked up very quickly. Enjoy!

Thanks for writing up your favorite stitch. I had asked you about it before and am so happy to have the pattern now. Take care,

Cindy, this is a modification of what I usually use.

The one that is shown in the other pictures that I've done here is working in front loop, this one is back loop.

Just thought I'd try it to see how it worked out, and I love it!

I finished a dishcloth last night using this pattern. You can see the picture here http://www.flickr.com/photos/recyclecindy/2971533743/

I loved the pattern and the dishcloth turned out wonderful. I plan to use it with my Christmas kitchen sets.

Oh this looks lovely and I think I'll have a try at it sometime soon ... maybe! LoL. I just read about your terrible experiences with the house on you other blog, I do hope you start to get some help soon.
