Crocheting my own dishcloths is one of those things that stops time for me, leaving me in the 1800s when women like Ma Ingalls would spend their evenings with practical crafting and time with the family. In similar fashion, crocheting while sitting in our living room while my family and I watch a movie together or just simply talk transports me back to simpler times.
Crafting these dish cloths is the whole experience for me—I experience the peaceful, rhythmic movement of crochet, the fulfillment of the needs of my home, and the satisfaction of a job well done because the product I’ve just made will be both beautiful and functional in my kitchen.
This simple little dishcloth is also simple to make. My pattern is easy enough for the less experienced needleworker, and fun enough for the seasoned to be able to crochet up at least one basic cloth in an hour. It’s a quick project that will bring beauty and functionality to your kitchen towel drawer.
This listing is for a PDF version of the pattern only, and includes 4 pages with the main dish cloth pattern and 2 options for borders: shell border and half double crochet border. Finished size approximately 6″ x 10″ (without the shell border).
