This quick and easy crochet dishcloth only measures 6.75″ square. But you can easily adjust the width and length to your desired size as there is no stitch multiple. And with the triple crochet stitches, it not only works up super quick, but it’s a bit of an open stitch to help it dry quicker as well.
It’s also a a great go-to crochet dishcloth for gifting to your family and friends. Fold it up neatly and tie a ribbon around it for a quick and easy gift.
This dishcloth consists of a simple alternation of the single and triple crochet stitches. It’s great for a beginner to learn how to make taller stitches.
As you can see from the image below, the sides don’t look very even, but a simple single crochet edging will fix that.
I used a cotton yarn for mine, but go with whatever you prefer for dish and washcloths. Bernat Handicrafter Cotton and Sugar ‘n Cream are two of my go-to cottons for dishcloths.
