Jacob’s Ladder Dish Cloth

This crochet dishcloth pattern features a pretty cabled-like look. It offers a nice textured fabric to make your dish-scrubbing a bit easier. You could crochet this up for gift ideas, sale items for craft shows as well as for your own home.

Not only do you get a nice texture, but it is durable as well.

I used Bernat Handicrafter Cotton yarn, but any similar yarn will work just as well to make this.

If you’re familiar with the Jacob”s Ladder crochet technique then you will find this crochet dishcloth pattern easy to crochet. It is simply made with double crochets and loops made by chaining. Then the chains are looped together to create a braided look.
