Cottage Comfort Dishcloth, A Textured Dishcloth Crochet Pattern
After writing my first dishcloth crochet pattern, I can’t seem to stop looking for great textured crochet stitches for future washcloths/dishcloths.
Last week, I got stuck on the border of this baby blanket. At one point, my blanket had a different border on each corner. What can I say? I was overanalyzing.
I needed to step back from that project and work on something quick and relaxing. As a break, I designed this dishcloth/washcloth crochet pattern.
It was just the break I needed.
Of course, I had to write out the pattern and share it with you.
Here’s the Textured Dishcloth Crochet Pattern:

- I/9 (5.5) Crochet Hook – if you crochet loosely, consider going down a hook size.
- 1 Skein of Cotton Yarn or Cotton Blend Yarn (Find out the best yarn for dishcloths)
- I used the following yarns.
- Hobby Lobby I Love This Cotton – Rosy
- Paintbox Cotton Aran – Light Caramel & Paper White
- If you’d like to use a different brand of yarn, you’ll need approximately 90 yards.
- Tapestry Needle & Scissors
- Finished dishcloth measures approximately 8”x8” as written. Instructions for adjusting the size are given at the end of the pattern.
- Pattern is worked through back and front loops. See the video linked below if you are unfamiliar with this.
- You will not be working into the turning chain.
- For detailed instructions on how to create the stitch used throughout this dishcloth, please watch this YouTube video.
- 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: cluster in the third chain, *dc in the next stitch, cluster 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: cluster in the back loop of the first stitch, *dc in the front loop of the next stitch, cluster in the back loop of 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 16 rows. At the end of the last row, do not finish off. Continue to the border.
Single crochet evenly around the entire dishcloth. Work 3 sc stitches into each corner.
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 8” and 9” wide.
You can make also make a pretty crochet blanket using this stitch. That crochet pattern is available here.

I don’t understand what you mean in row two when you say that the turning chain and the first double crochet count as the first cluster stitch when the first stitch you say to make after the chain two and turn is a cluster in the back loop.
Probably messed that up because I published it so late at night ?. I just fixed that error. Thanks for bringing it to my attention ☺️

Lol. I totally get it. Finished my first one, I’m making red ones for galentine’s gifts. Might make more for staff appreciation week too.
I have been making hats using the waistcoat stitch and have loosened my tension quite a bit. Had to move down to a G hook for this project. ? Love the way they’re turning out, though! Thanks for the pattern! ❤️
Thank you for this beautiful pattern. You mentioned that instructions for adjusting the size would be at the end of the pattern, but I don’t see them.
Hi, Mary. I forgot to add that! Oops. I’ve gone in and updated with that information.
