Textured Stripes Dishcloth

Need a project to help you clean up your cotton yarn stash? If so, then this textured stripes dishcloth may just be what you’re looking for! I used three colors to make this, but feel free to use more or less depending on what is in your stash.

Another option would be in a solid color, but I like the way the stitches look when worked in different colors.

The choice is yours, but either way, this crochet dishcloth will make for a nice gift idea for your friends and family.

The crochet dishcloth pattern is given on the small side, but you can very easily adjust this to any size you like. Crochet a little coaster, a placemat, hotpad, bathmat, or even a cozy blanket using this pretty and striped stitch pattern.

A worsted weight cotton is one of my favorite yarns for crocheting dishcloths. Bernat Handicrafter, Red Heart and Lion Brand, all have excellent dishcloth cottons that you can use to make this.

If you plan on using this in the bath, then you could also try using acrylic or other yarns that dry quick. Acrylic doesn’t hold up as good for scrubbing, but for the bath it can be a good substitute, depending on your preference.
