17 Free Crochet Dishcloth Patterns That’ll Make You Want to Wash the Dishes

Are you looking for a great yarn stash buster? There's no better project for helping to clean out your yarn bins than crochet dishcloths. Not only are they adorable, they also serve a practical purpose – cleaning your home or your body.

Let's face it, no one really enjoys doing the dishes but especially when you have a flimsy, mass-produced cloth that doesn't last long before it's threadbare and full of holes. Handmade crochet cloths tend to be thicker, more luxurious and last much, much longer.

Check out our 17 free crochet dishcloth patterns that'll make you actually want to wash the dishes now.

Crunchy Stitch Crochet Dishcloth Pattern

This crunchy stitch dishcloth pattern features a fun and easy crochet stitch that gives a great textured design. The crochet pattern uses only two basics stitches, slip stitches and half double crochets, but when used in an alternating sequence the effect looks much more complex.
