You don’t need much yarn, making it great for busting through your stash of cotton yarn. And that also makes it ideal for a last-minute gift idea! So why not whip up a bunch to have them ready! I’m sure they’ll be appreciated by just about everyone.

Work it up in a solid color as shown, or choose a few bright and lively colors.

The Finished Size

The finished size is only 6.75″ by 6.75″. It’s kind of small, but you can easily increase that if you like in any multiple of 4+3. Thus, it’s easy to make a coaster or a placemat to match!

Recommended Yarn

Cotton yarn is always my go-to when it comes to dish and washcloths! It is much more durable, it’s absorbent, and is much more effective when it comes to scrubbing.

I like to use Bernat Handicrafter, which is a worsted weight yarn. But there are many other brands that can work just as well.

The Stitch Pattern

The stitch pattern is for intermediate crocheters. But if you know how to make the crochet cross-stitch then you will have no problem crocheting this dishcloth.

The cross over long double crochet is made by skipping a stitch. Work three half doubles, and then backtrack and work a long double crochet into the skipped stitch. This slants the stitch diagonally, which gives it the beautiful look.

The stitch is alternated between rows of single crochets.
