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!

  •        Medium size 4 Worsted Weight Yarn – 120 yards (Loops & Threads Capri in            Turquoise used in photos)
  •        Tapestry Needle & Scissors


  • st = stitch
  • ch = chain
  • sl = slip stitch
  • sc = single crochet
  • dc = double crochet



Chain 45 stitches (to make the pattern smaller or larger, chain in multiples of 4 + 5 ch at the end)

Row 1: 3dc in the 5th ch from the hook, skip 3ch, 1sc in the next ch. *Ch3, 3dc in the same ch as the last sc, skip 3ch, 1sc in the next ch*. Repeat from * until you reach the end of the row ending in a sc, turn.



Row 2: Ch4, 3dc in the same ch as the last sc from the previous row (photo 2), skip over the 3dc from the previous row, 1sc in the next ch3 space (photo 3), *ch3 (photo 4), 3dc in same ch sp as last sc (photo 5), skip [1sc, 3dc], 1sc in the next ch3 space, rep from * ending with 1sc under the ch4, turn.

Row 3 – 19: Repeat the steps in Row 2

Row 20: Ch3, 1dc in the same stitch at the bottom of the ch3, *ch2, sl st in the ch3 space from the previous row, 1dc in the first dc at the bottom of the “V” from the previous row (see photo 6)*, repeat from * along the rest of the row, ending in a sl st. Bind off and weave in ends.



For a more interesting look, add different colors of yarn as you work through this crochet pattern. Or, if you’re looking for an idea for your next crochet blanket pattern, just make this in a much larger size (multiples of 4 + 5 ch).
