Crochet Thread Dish Cloth Pattern
Free Dish Cloth Crochet Pattern
Here is a free crochet pattern for a dish cloth that you can make in either a worsted weight cotton or in a size 3 cotton thread. Instructions for crocheting it in worsted yarn are below the instructions for the crochet thread version. Both are the same except you do not chain as many in worsted weight as you do in crochet thread.
Dish cloths are generally crocheted with a worsted weight cotton such as Bernat Handicrafter, however, I have found out that they are just as useful when made in a thread. As a matter of fact, I prefer the ones in thread over the worsted weight because they are not as bulky. And I'm not a fan of dish cloths that are too big.
Skill Level: Beginner
Thread: Size 3 Crochet Thread or Bernat Handicrafter Cotton
Hook Size: E-3.50MM, or an H/8-5.00MM if using worsted weight yarn.
Finished Measurement: 7.75" x 7.75"
