Easy crochet dish cloth

I bought some “I love this cotton” yarn when I found it on sale a while back. I had forgotten I had it and when I found it, thought I might try out a few fish cloth patterns to see if I found one I liked. This is the Woods Print color

This is SUPER easy. I used this pattern. This is a c/p so I have it for my records. Visit her site for the whole set of instructions!! I used a H hook and added a single crochet border all the way around the edges. 

Textured Crochet Dish Cloth

This dishcloth pattern comes from yarnspirations.com and is called “Speedy Texture Dishcloth”. I made this a few weeks ago and ended up using an entire ball of Lily Sugar ‘n Cream cotton. I failed to read that there were TWO balls required (hello, brain!) so I just finished out one ball instead. It was way longer than I wanted, so there was no need to carry on with buying another ball. I like the texture, though, so I may make a half width version at some point.

Anyway, this was made with an H hook and Lily Sugar ‘n Cream cotton in Butter Cream Ombre (I am not 100% sure that’s the color name, but it looks closest to that one).

Simple Crochet Dish Cloth

I realize that my website has been cooking, for a long time. I also realize I hardly update these days. Well, I am less than 2 weeks away from graduating nursing school, so I am going to have time to actually blog again. I have been cooking off and on, but only documenting it on Pinterest! Anyway, I have also taken up crocheting as a hobby. I am a total newbie, but for my own memory purposes I want to blog about the things that I have made, so I can find the patterns later on!!

So not the first thing I have made, but my first crochet blog. I am trying to find “the perfect” dish cloth to suit me (aka the novice crocheter). A lot of the patterns I have found make gigantic cloths that are way too long. So I found this pattern on YouTube (a new crocheter’s dream! Video demos!). I am not 100% sure that this is THE ONE for me, but it was not a bad little project to practice on! I am still learning, so be nice to me 🙂

It’s easy! Basically start with a slip knot, chain however many wide you want your towel to be. I think mine was ch25. Turn, single crochet to the end. Chain 2, turn, double crochet to the end, chain 1, turn, rinse, repeat. Then at the end I did a ch1, did 3 single crochets into the corner, then single crochet down the side to make a border. 3 sc in each corner as you sc around the edges to the end. Then slip stitch when you get back to the beginning and you fasten off and voila!

I used an H hook (5mm) and Lily Sugar ‘n Cream Stripes (cotton) in Natural. I have never used the striped yarn before and if I had known how it was going to work out, I probably would have made the cloth less wide, but hey, you live, you learn, right?

Happy crocheting 🙂
