The half double and v-stitch crochet dishcloth pattern is easy to adjust in size, thus making it perfect for washing the dishes or cleaning the entire home. It’s made of cotton, so it also makes for a soft and natural scrubber in the bath.
It’s a v-stitch dishcloth with enough solid stitches for a solid fabric that you can use for all your scrubbing and washing needs. The stitch pattern looks great on both sides, with a lovely texture on the wrong side.
Here is the right side:
And here is the wrong side. I love the texture that you get from the half double crochet stitches. It makes it a great pattern, not only for a crochet dishcloth, but for scarves and cowls and any other pattern where you’d like to have a nice pattern on both sides of the fabric. It’ll also make for a lovely addition to any gift basket.
For this pattern I used up leftovers from a big ball of yarn, however, I’m pretty sure you only need a small ball to complete the pattern. If you find out otherwise, please do let us know in the comments so we can update. Thanks so much, and I hope you will enjoy.
The v-stitch is normally crocheted in rows with a v-stitch in each v-stitch. However, I wanted to switch things up a bit, and therefore, did a row of solid stitches after each v-stitch row.
