2 New Wash Cloths for Washing Dishes

Patterns many times develop when you use variegated colored yarn. This one is my favorite pattern. I love this style wash clothes (for dishes) because they are the perfect size and thickness for my hand. They are also very easy and quick to make.

Gauge: Not important

Hook size: US G/6.00 mm

1. Ch22 loosely.

2. Row 1: Turn, hdc in 3rd chain from hook and then in each chain.

3. Rows 2 - 12: Turn and chain 2, hdc in each hdc.

4. Round 1: Change color if you wish and... Turn and chain 2 (this counts as 1 hdc), hdc 2 more times in corner and then hdc in each hdc except the corners get 3 hdc. On sides evenly crochet around 19 hdc. slst in second chain of beginning ch2.

5. Round 2: Chain 1 and single crochet in each hdc except sc 3 in corners. Slst in beginning ch 1. Tie off.

Key: sc= single crochet hdc= half double crochet slst= slip stitch


  1. Thank you! I just made a few baby wash clothes for my friend's baby shower and love them. I was looking for more patterns. I did find that using cotton yarn was key to having soft wash clothes.

  2. It must be very nice to wash dishes with these since they are soft, but the texture helps cleaning more effective.

  3. These are the best washcloths! You did a great job-these look perfect!

    Thanks for visiting my blog!

  4. Last year I started making dishcloths and I too think they are the best.I made the mistake of knitting them 12x12 Now when they are wet they weigh a ton.I now use them as body wash cloths and will try crocheting the next batch a little smaller.They won't go to waste no matter the outcome.Enjoying your quotes. Thank you
