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-conscience 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!

Tulip Textured Crochet Dishcloth Pattern

Tulip Textured Crochet Dishcloth Pattern

This post is late coming but each year, at the end of the school year, I like to make gifts for all of Noelle’s teachers and coaches. It’s a little tradition I started a few years ago and have now grown fond of. I’ve had a lot of very sweet comments from my daughter’s teachers expressing gratitude for receiving something handmade and personal. One of my favorite gifts is my handmade soap accompanied with crocheted washcloths.

This is a perfect opportunity to test out a new crochet stitch pattern so this year I created these very pretty dishcloths using a stitch I’ve been wanting to try, the tulip stitch. It has a really beautiful repetitive pattern with a lovely bumpy texture.

As with many crochet dishcloth patterns, this is an easy pattern and moves along quickly once you get past the first couple of rows. The single crochet and double crochet stitches are basic, it’s just a matter of getting the stitches in the right place. I’ve also included a step-by-step tutorial to help make things really easy to understand.

Not only can you use this as a dishcloth, but it also makes a great crochet washcloth as well. The crochet pattern is made with a cotton blend yarn so it also feels great on your skin.

I hope you enjoy this sweet little crochet pattern as much as I do. Happy hooking!

Another year of school has come to an end and I think it’s important to always give thanks to the amazing teachers who shape our child’s educational and extracurricular life.
