Primrose Dishcloth Crochet Pattern

This must have kitchen accessory might be the easiest project you will work up this year! Scroll down for the complete free pattern or get the ad-free, printable PDF pattern here.

Well, this certainly isn’t the sexiest crochet pattern but it sure is practical.

If you haven’t used crocheted dishcloths for doing your dishes, you’re missing out. They’re fabulous for scrubbing dirty dishes and many people I know swear by them. These dishcloths are workhorses and after using them, you'll never go back to store-bought cloths.

For this crochet dishcloth pattern, I used this amazing “2nd Time Cotton” which has a little extra texture to it. This yarn is 75% recycled cotton and 25% acrylic – a fantastic blend for scrubbing and drying out a little faster than 100% cotton yarn. It’s also an opportunity to be a little bit eco-conscious and that’s never a bad thing.

This crochet pattern is relatively simple and will give you a chance to try out the lovely primrose stitch. It uses basic crochet stitches that are perfect for beginners.

Crochet washcloths and dishcloths also make a cute gift for friends and family. People can never have too many dishcloths – especially cute handmade crochet dishcloths like these ones!
