Free Dishcloth Crochet Pattern
Here is a small dishcloth for you to enjoy. The finished size only measures 6.5 by 7 inches, but in a simple multiple of two, you can increase or decrease this to any size you need for use throughout the home. Or, whip up a coaster and a placemat to match, and decorate your kitchen with this elegant looking stitch pattern.
As for the stitch pattern, it’s done with the half double crochet and slip stitch in one row, and the single crochet and chain 1 in the next row to give it a nice lacy and textured fabric. The textures make this perfect for tough scrubbing needs, and the bit of lace helps for it to dry quicker after use.
And it’s pretty enough for gift baskets! Crochet it in a solid color as shown, or mix and match and use up your left-over scraps. Either way, it’s sure to be loved by everyone.
