How to Crochet a Dishcloth

Updated on November 28, 2017

The first thing that I do when crocheting a dishcloth is to pick out the color, decide how big it will be, what size hook and what kind of stitches should I use. I love the single crochet stitch for when I make a dishcloth. You can do any stitches that you want. When you have answered the questions, it is time to begin.

What You Need to Crochet a Dishcloth:

* 100% cotton yarn (I use Peaches & Cream) any color

* Size 5.00 MM crochet hook (any size will do)

When crocheting a dishcloth you need cotton yarn because you need yarn that is durable, washable and has the ability to handle wear and tear. Your dishcloth will be wet most of the time.

Make a chain of 23 and do an extra chain so you can turn it. When you start the next row, skip the first chain. Crochet a single crochet stitch through each of the chain when you get to the end of the row, you should have 23 stitches. At the end of each row do an extra stitch so you can turn it. Each row should have 23 stitches. Continue the single crochet throughout the dishcloth until you are done. When you are finished, cut the yarn, put a knot at the end and weave the extra into your dishcloth.

This is what my dishcloth looked when it was half done.

When you are done with the desired size, tie of the end and make a knot. Then weave the ends in the dishcloth. This is what it will look like when done.


First row: chain 23 stitches

Rest of the rows: 1 chain stitch and 23 single stitches

I hope that this article was interesting and easy to understand. This is my first time attempting to write down how I crocheted this dishcloth. If you have any advice or tips on how to write a pattern, please comment.

Was this easy to understand?
