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. Last year I started my own personal tradition of making homemade soap and crochet dishcloths for all of my daughter’s teachers and coaches.

In 2015 I made the Easy Thick Crochet Dishcloth and this year I decided to design a new fun and lively granny square crochet pattern for my dishcloth.

This pattern is so fun and really simple to make. Once you learn this easy crochet pattern, you’ll be able to do it in your sleep. I’ve also included this helpful crochet video tutorial for those who find it easier to follow crochet patterns visually.

Easy crochet dishcloth pattern

Easy Thick Crochet Wash & Dishcloths

It’s almost the end of the school year and I’ve been thinking about what sort of thank you gifts to give my daughter’s teachers and instructors (school, piano, dance, baseball, etc.). I’m all about homemade gifts when at all possible so I settled on making a crochet dishcloth. There are lots of free crochet dishcloth patterns online, but I wanted to make my own unique one.

For the past 2 months, I’ve been taking pottery classes, learning how to use the potter’s wheel. I’ve also started making handmade soap on a regular basis which we now use every day in our household (check out my post on how to make Natural Calendula Soap here).

I’m giving them each a beautiful handmade soap dish with my own soap and a thick durable crochet washcloth. They’re made using the single crochet stitch, which forms a tight thick fabric. This stitch is great for a crochet project like this.

This crochet dishcloth pattern is about as easy as it gets – a perfect crochet pattern for beginners. You only need to know 2 easy crochet stitches, the chain stitch and how to single crochet.

Hopefully, these handmade crochet gifts will reflect my gratitude to all the people who help teach and shape my daughter.

Easy Thick Crochet Wash & Dishcloths Pattern

Materials:

  • Cotton Yarn x 2 balls (yarn is held together) approx. 60 yards each – Bernat Handicarfter yarn used for this project (swimming pool, aloe vera and country stripes)
  • Crochet Hook – US L/8 mm.
  • Scissors
  • Yarn or tapestry needle

Directions:

Ch = chain, sc = single crochet (U.S.)

Holding both ends of yarn together (you will be crocheting with them as if they are one the entire time), make a slip stitch and chain 20 stitches together, keeping tension even through the chain (feel free to make the cloth bigger or smaller just by increasing or decreasing the number of chains in your foundation chain).

Row 1: 1sc the second stitch from the hook and then in each stitch along the chain until the end. Once you reach the end, chain 1 and then turn.

Row 2: 1sc in every stitch until you reach the end. Chain 1, turn your work.

Repeat row 2 until you’ve made a square (you can tell if you’ve made a square by folding the cloth in half diagonally.

Fasten off and weave in the ends.
