Today I have a half double and double crochet v stitch dishcloth pattern for you. The crochet v stitch can be made in a number of ways, and here I rotated the rows with the half double and double crochet v stitch. I like the final outcome of the two different rows as it’s not too open to use as a dishcloth. With that said, you could easily do all rows the same with either the half double or double crochet v stitches.
Above is the right side pictured, but the wrong side looks great too. With that said, I prefer the looks of the half double crochet from the wrong side better. This is why I use the half double crochet stitch in so many patterns, it looks better on the wrong side than most other stitches.
If you’ve been following my blog for a while you will know that I like my dishcloths on the small side. If you are the opposite, you can easily make this bigger in a simple multiple as outlined in the pattern. Or, make it smaller for a coaster for your desk. Or, even larger for a placemat for the kitchen table. It’s that easy to make a set for your kitchen.
And, because it works up so quick and easy, you can make a set for your kitchen as well as to gift to your friends and family.
Also, I did mine without an edging and it works perfect for a dishcloth. But with a single crochet edging it looks much better. I would highly recommend an edging if using this pattern to make a coaster or placemat.
