Crochet Dishcloth Tutorial

These dishcloths are really quick to make. If you crochet and would like a quick gift to make, this would be it. I made these using cotton yarn and a size H hook. If you are not sure of the size hook for the yarn you're using, there is a guide on the wrapping.
I don't like huge dishcloths so these are the perfect size for me. If you like them larger, increase by a couple of stitches. Test out a couple of rows to make sure it's the size you want.

Crochet Dishcloths


Cotton yarn - One small ball gives me two dishcloths.
Crochet hook size H

Chain 26
Double crochet in second chain from hook, dc in each stitch across.

Chain 2, turn. Double crochet in each stitch across.
Repeat above row until you get a nice square piece. Weave in ends.

My SIL always managed to send me a knitted dishcloth every year but illness is limiting her ability. I should make my own from your pattern. I just love these dishclothes...
