Are you looking to add some farmhouse style to your kitchen? Perhaps you need a quick housewarming gift? These Country Crochet dishcloths are just what you need!

Wouldn't these country dishcloths look perfect in your farmhouse kitchen? They add the perfect rustic DIY touch for any farmhouse style. Free crochet pattern.

Dishcloths are so quick and easy to make and add such a beautiful handmade touch to your space. These crochet dishcloths are textured and thick – perfect for wiping up messes or scrubbing those dishes! It is best to use cotton when making crochet dishcloths since it is super absorbant and dries quickly.

I used Lily’s Sugar and Cream to make these beauties. The regular Ecru color (NOT the soft ECRU) of Lily’s Sugar and Cream cotton is one of my all time favorite neutral tones and you can’t go wrong with a good gray color. Even if country farmhouse isn’t your style, these dishcloths are wonderfully neutral and will look good anywhere, or you can make them in whatever color combination you would like to match any style.

They came be used in your kitchen as a dishcloth or the bathroom as a washcloth (just pick one or the other!)  Either way they will look lovely. (What do you think about that wrapper?  You can get access to the free download by signing for the Stitching Together email list.)

Country Crochet Dishcloth

  • US-Size I/9 Crochet Hook
  • Lily’s Sugar and Cream Yarn (100% Cotton 4 Medium weight,  2.5 oz / 71g, 120 yards / 109 meters)

I wrote an entire post about my favorite hooks.  Check out the Clover Amour Crochet Hook Review and learn why you should upgrade your hooks.

Abbreviations:

ch(s): chain(s)
sc(s): single crochet(s)
st(s): stitch(es)
sp: space
yo: yarn over
hdc: half double crochet
MC: Main Color (Ecru)
CC: Contrasting Color (Overcast)

Finished Size:

no border: 8″ X 8.75″
border: 8.75″ x 9.5″

Gauge: 

4″ x 4″ = 6 spider stitches by 14 rows

Note:

The dishcloth is worked in the spider stitch which is a sc, ch 1, sc in the same space. See How to Crochet the Spider Stitch tutorial for full instructions.

I find it difficult to carry the yarn not in use and up the side when working with the spider stitch so I did cut the yarn at each color change. If you are going to add a border, you can carry the yarn up the sides and hide it with the border stitches.

Color changes work best when using the new color to complete the final stitch of the previous row.

10 Comments on Country Crochet Dishcloth

  1. I was looking for the sign up link and for the label for the dishcloth and towel wrap. I am getting ready to make them to sell (the dishcloths and towels, that is) I did sign up for the planner, is that the same sign up? Please advise.

    • Hi Denise! It is the same. You’ll be able to download the wrapper on the same page as the planner. The info should be in your email! Good luck selling and have fun!

    • Hi Ellen, I don’t think there is much difference other than personal preference. I tend to use the less textured cloths for washcloths and more textured ones for dishes BUT it’s really up to you!

  2. Thank you for this pattern. I am just learning to crochet (relearning since a teenager) and it looks simple enough. Already a knitter – just aiming to keep my options open.
