Up until recently, I had never made a crocheted dishcloth, let alone written a pattern for one. When I needed some new rags for my kitchen, I decided that I would make some and give them a try before ordering new ones on Amazon. Believe it or not, I love them.
Free dishcloth crochet patterns are all over the internet, and I can see why. There are so many fun crochet stitches to be used and they are crochet projects that can be finished in under an hour? Doesn’t get much better than that. When you don’t have time to make a throw blanket for a friend’s birthday, a nice set of crochet dishcloths might be just the thing.
Crochet dishcloths make fantastic gifts – especially when paired with a really nice soap or scrubber. I plan on keeping some on hand as hostess gifts, too.

- Finished dishcloth measures approximately 8”x8” as written. Instructions for adjusting the size are given at the end of the pattern.
- For those who find crochet charts helpful, a chart is included after the written instructions.
- Pattern is worked through both loops.
- You will not be working into the turning chain.
- A video tutorial for this stitch is available here.
- Cluster Stitch: Yarn over, insert hook into stitch, pull up a loop. Pull through two loops. Yarn over, insert hook into the same stitch, pull up a loop. Pull through 2 loops. Pull through 3 loops.
Row 1: dc in the third chain from hook, *hdc in the next stitch, cluster stitch in the next stitch* across to the last stitch. Remember, you will not be working into the top of the chain. Ch 2, turn.
Row 2: dc in the first stitch (don’t skip any stitches. The turning chain and the first dc will count as your first cluster stitch). *hdc in the next stitch, cluster stitch in the next stitch* across to the last stitch. Remember, you will not be working into the top of the turning chain. Ch 2, turn.
Continue repeating row 2 for a total of 17 rows. At the end of the last row, you can either cut your yarn and weave your ends or continue on to the border. The teal cloth does not have a border. The linen cloth does.
If you enjoy crochet charts, you might find this helpful.
There are two optional borders. Option 1 is shown on the teal dishcloth in the photo. The linen dishcloth does not have a border.
Work around the entire blanket alternating between single and double crochet stitches. Work sc, dc, sc in each corner stitch.
Cut yarn and weave ends.
Single crochet evenly around the entire dishcloth. Work 3 sc into each corner.
Cut yarn and weave ends.
Adjusting the Size:
If you would like to adjust the size of this dishcloth/washcloth, simply chain any odd number. Then, work rows until your pattern is a square.
Most dishcloths are somewhere between 7” and 9” wide. Experiment with different sizes until you find the perfect size for you.
