Basic Beginner Dishcloth | Crochet Tutorial
This crocheted dishcloth is the first in my Spring Dishcloth Collection! This is the perfect dishcloth for beginner and advanced crocheters alike. Just a warning though-everyone will want one!
Approximately 30 grams/60 yards of any cotton yarn (sample uses WeCrochet Dishie in Kenai)
Optional: Approximately 2 grams/5 yards of any contrast color yarn for the border (sample uses WeCrochet Dishie in White)
Size I (5.5mm) crochet hook
Yarn Needle to weave in ends
Ruler to check gauge if desired
It is not necessary to achieve a certain gauge for this project, but if you want the same dimensions as the sample I suggest checking.
7 stitches by 7 rows = 2 inches in single crochet, worked flat
MC: main color
CC: contrast color
sc: single crochet
f/o: finish off
Find the yarn used for the sample here.

This dishcloth is made by creating a single crochet square, then adding an optional border for a neat finish.
The ch 1 at the beginning of each row does NOT count as a stitch. This is the turning chain, and allows the edges to be nice and straight.
When worked to pattern, your dishcloth will measure approximately 8 inches wide by 8 inches tall.
Feel free to adjust the size of your dishcloth by chaining less/more sts to make it narrower/wider. Simply work sc rows until it is square.
Row 1: sc in the second ch from the hook and in ea ch across. (24 sts)
Rows 2-25: ch 1 and turn. sc in ea st across. (24 sts)
f/o, and weave in your ends.
If you’d like to add a border, proceed to Finishing Instructions
Attach a new strand of yarn to any stitch on row 25. Sc in each st, and sc 3 sts in ea corner. On the sides, place one single crochet stitch in every row you worked. Continue until you reach the first stitch you made.
f/o, and weave in any ends remaining.
Enjoy your new dishcloth!
