Modern Textured Dishcloth Crochet Pattern

These modern textured dishcloths are made using the griddle stitch, which means they have just the right amount of texture and are super easy to make.

If you’re looking for a quick, beginner-friendly crochet dishcloth pattern, this is it! With these dishcloths, you can make them whatever size you want, as long as you chain an odd number of chains.

Because these are dishcloths, you’ll want to make sure you use 100% cotton yarn. Cotton yarn is durable and can withstand the wear and tear of washing dishes. Also, cotton yarns are machine washable, which is definitely a plus when it comes to dishcloths.

Additionally, I love the stitch definition that cotton yarn gives and the beautiful colors that are available.

  • One skein of 100% worsted weight cotton yarn. For my dishcloths, I used Lion Brand 24/7 Cotton in the colors white, goldenrod, and dragonfly.
  • US size G 4.0 mm crochet hook
  • Scissors
  • Tapestry needle

Size (approximate) 10″ x 10″

Size Adjustment: To adjust the size of your dishcloth, start with a longer or shorter chain, keeping an odd number of chains. Follow the crochet pattern until your dishcloth is the size you want.

Abbreviations (US):

ch – chain
st(s) – stitch(es)
