What You Will Need:

  • 1 Skein- Sugar and Cream Cotton Yarn ( just make sure its 100% cotton)
  • Size J (6mm) or 5.5mm
  • Scissors


Written Instructions for Easy Crochet Dishcloths:

1) Chain 28, plus 2 for a total of 30

2) Row 1: Place a Half Double Crochet (HDC) in third chain from hook and then in each stitch across the foundation chain (29 half double crochets total). Chain 2 and then turn your work (the chain 2 serves as your first stitch in the second row)

3) Row 2: Place HDC in the second stitch from the hook. Crochet into the back loop of the stitch. (This will create a ribbed look). Continue down the row until you get to the end of the row.    Be sure to complete a HDC in the last turning chain stitch.

4) Row 3-20(or desire length): Repeat Row 2 until the end

5) Finish off project and weave in the ends


If you need to make a wider dishcloth, make your foundation chain longer. If you want your dishcloth longer crochet additional rows.

I used Sugar and Cream Yarn because it’s often on sale and its 100% cotton, machine washable and machine dry able. You can use any brand of 100% cotton yarn to make these easy crochet dishcloths. Keep in mind cotton yarn can shrink so if you want it to stay a certain size you may want to  add some additional stitches to your foundation chain.
