The Country Dishcloth Crochet Pattern features a texture that is similar to the honeycomb stitch but is so much easier!
The texture in this crochet dishcloth is created using the Pistachio stitch. It’s an easy one row repeat that creates a beautiful 3-D texture.
I love to add new dishcloths to the collection in my kitchen on a regular basis. I also like to give them as last minute gifts to friends and family when needed. They are very handy to have around. This particular Country Dishcloth crochet pattern works up quickly. It also features a very simple edging which really sets off the texture. I have worked the crochet dishcloth in one solid colour but you could easily add in more colours if desired.
Cotton is best!
A 100% cotton yarn is always the best when working up dishcloths. It is heat resistant, washes well and is tough. It also comes in an array of colours so your washcloths can match any home decor theme. The Country Dishcloth crochet pattern will require about 130 yards of a worsted/medium weight cotton as well as a 5 mm (H/8) crochet hook.
