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!

The pattern

Ch 92

Row 1: (Sc, ch 2, sc) into 3rd ch from the hook. *Skip next 2 ch, (sc, ch 2, sc) in next ch, repeat from *across the row, end with 1 hdc in last ch. Turn.

Row 2: Ch 3, *3 dc into the next ch 2 sp; repeat from * across the row. 1 dc into the top of the turning ch, turn -1 ch 3, 30 shell sts, 1 dc

Row 3: *Ch 2, (sc, ch 2, sc) in 2nd DC of next shell; repeat from *across. Hdc into the top of the turning ch, turn.

Rows 4-20: repeat rows 2 and 3

Tie off, cut yarn.

To add fringe: You will need to cut 90 strands of yarn approx 9” in length. To make it easier, I wrapped my yarn widthwise around a box of kraft dinner 90 times. Take 3 strands of yarn, fold in half and knot into each ch space along the bottom of the scarf. Trim ends of fringe to even out.

To add buttons: Lay scarf right side facing up and place buttons horizontally on the right side of the second row of the pattern. The buttons should be 2” apart placing the first one 1.5” from the edge of the scarf. See picture below for clarity.

Using a tapestry needle, sew in ends.
