Sure, here’s an easy crochet dishcloth tutorial with a free pattern for you:

Materials Needed:

  • Worsted weight cotton yarn in your choice of colors
  • Crochet hook (Size H/5mm recommended)
  • Scissors
  • Yarn needle


  • Ch: Chain
  • Sc: Single crochet
  • Dc: Double crochet


Step 1: Foundation Chain

  1. Start by making a slip knot and then chaining 26.
  2. This will serve as the foundation for your dishcloth.

Step 2: First Row

  1. Starting from the second chain from the hook, work 1 sc into each chain across. You should have 25 sc stitches in total.
  2. Ch 1 and turn your work.

Step 3: Second Row and Beyond

  1. Work 1 sc into the first stitch, then 1 sc into each stitch across.
  2. Ch 1 and turn your work.

Step 4: Adding Texture

  1. Repeat the second row until your dishcloth reaches your desired size (usually around 8-10 inches square).
  2. If you’d like to add some texture to your dishcloth, you can incorporate different stitches. For example, you can alternate between rows of sc and rows of dc to create a textured pattern.

Step 5: Finishing

  1. Once your dishcloth is the desired size, fasten off your yarn, leaving a tail.
  2. Weave in any loose ends using a yarn needle.

Step 6: Optional Border

  1. If you want to add a border to your dishcloth, you can do so by working a round of single crochet stitches around the entire outer edge. This will give your dishcloth a neat and finished look.

And that’s it! You’ve completed your easy crochet dishcloth. Experiment with different colors and stitches to create unique patterns and designs. These dishcloths also make great handmade gifts!

Remember, practice makes perfect, so don’t be discouraged if your first dishcloth doesn’t turn out exactly as you envisioned. As you continue to crochet, your skills will improve, and you’ll be creating beautiful and functional items in no time. Enjoy your crocheting journey!
