This beginner crochet dishcloth pattern is so easy that you wouldn’t even need a pattern. However, since I have the beginners in mind, I thought I’d write it out so they can crochet it as well, and to also give them a pattern to practice on. And what better pattern than a dishcloth, as the final product doesn’t have to be perfect.
The pattern is designed for the absolute crochet beginner, meaning that you can make this your very first crochet project. And the only stitches needed to make this is the single crochet. The beginner crochet dishcloth is worked in rows and then a single crochet border is added for the final touch.
There is no stitch multiple in the pattern, so you can basically crochet this to any size that you want. This one only measures 7 inches square because I like my crocheted dishcloths to be on the small side.
