This free dishcloth pattern is really straightforward, making it a perfect match for beginners and a relaxing project for more experienced crocheters. All you will need to know is your basic stitches – chains, single crochet, and double crochet – and you will be good to go.

In terms of colors, the design is really versatile. You can choose to work it in 3 colors as I have done or opt for a solid color – the choice is all yours! If you do opt for the stripes, then please don’t worry that you will have to deal with numerous yarn ends to weave in. This pattern uses a neat trick where you “float” the yarn up the side of your work as you switch colors, allowing you to easily crochet over these floats later with a border for a clean finish.

The pattern below is written for 2 sizes – dishcloth and tea towel – but it also includes instructions for modifying the stitch pattern to make any size that you like.

Finished Size: Washcloth: 8.25″ x 8.25″ / 21cm x 21cm, Tea Towel: 14.5″ x 21.75″ / 37cm x 55cm


  • Yarn – Any #4/Worsted/Medium weight yarn in a cotton or cotton blend.
  • Hook – 5mm (H-8) crochet hook
