A simple dishcloth anyone can make.
This dishcloth is a fantastic beginner project to test out new techniques and practice basic crochet stitches. If you are new to crochet, I have a complete tutorial of How to Crochet that will teach you everything you need to know to make this project.
Sugar ‘n Cream Yarn, available at most craft stores, or Bernat Handicrafter Cotton DeLux yarn, also available at most craft stores.
Size H/8 crochet hook (Alternatively, you could use a size G or I to size up or down the stitches, and thus the tightness of the weave)
- Ch 26, or desired width of dishcloth + 2 stitches.
- Turn, dc in 3rd st from hook, dc across, ch 2.
- Repeat step 2 until desired length is reached, about 14 times. Here you can bind off, or follow step 4 for a nice finished look.
- Ch 1, turn, sc across and around perimeter of dishcloth. Sl st into initial ch1 at beginning of row, bind off, weave in ends.
This is a well-loved dishcloth. I wash them with like colors with the rest of my towels, and throw them in the dryer, too!
