I love crocheting dishcloths. They are a great way to practice new stitches, learn how to change colors and not to mention how cute and pretty they look. When I was first learning how to crochet, I made so many dishcloths!
These dishcloths are crocheted using the Floret stitch. I love the way this stitch looks. The “Floret” look is made by alternating the double crochet and slip stitch in the same row. I thought this would be a perfect project for Mother’s Day. They also make great gifts!
You can crochet these dishcloths in a solid color or you can mix it up and play with different color combinations to match your kitchen or bathroom!
Below is a quick tutorial and pattern using the Floret stitch.
I used a combination of Lily Sugar ‘N Cream and Premier Home Cotton.
4.5mm crochet hook
Double Crochet (dc)
Slip Stitch (ss)
The pattern is worked in multiples of 3. You then add 2 more for your turning chain.
Row 1 – Dc in the 4th ch from the hook and each remaining ch across. (27)
Row 2 – Ch.1 turn, dc in the first stitch, ss in the next. *dc in the next stitch, ss in the next.* Repeat *til end of row. Your last st of the row will be in the top of the ch 3 of previous row. (27)
Row 3 – Ch.2 turn, dc in the first stitch and each stitch across. (27)
what your work should look like after 3 rows
Rows 4 thru 16 – Repeat rows 2 and 3 respectively
Row 17 – Repeat row 3
I added a border of sc around each dishcloth. I crocheted 3 sc in the corners to round them out.
If you would like to make your dishcloth longer then just continue alternating rows 2 and 3 to your desired length. If you would like to make it wider then make sure your starting chain is in a multiple of 3 and then add 2 more chains.
Weave in end(s) and your finished! Easy, right?
