35 Free Crochet Dishcloth Patterns

If you’re looking for some free crochet dishcloth patterns, then you’re in the right place! Crochet dishcloths are super quick makes, use very little yarn and they make wonderful gifts. I have put together a list with some of the best crochet dishcloth free patterns.

With crochet dishcloths can add flair to your kitchen and it’s much more enjoyable to wash the dishes with something you have created yourself. There are many different stitches and styles to choose from, depending on the yarn you choose your crochet dishcloth can look anything from cute and cheerful to classy and stylish.

If you think, why should it matter what a dishcloth looks like?.. Two reasons. First, it matters if you want to gift them to someone else. They make perfect gifts for any occasion. People like pretty things, even if it’s a dishcloth! But also, for yourself. I try to surround myself with the things that bring me joy. When I look at my pretty crochet dishcloth that I made myself and I like the colour, the stitches, and the yarn then washing dishes is not a chore for me anymore! It transforms into a pleasant meditative task. 🙂

Another reason for making crochet dishcloths is that you can learn and practise new crochet stitches and techniques. Dishcloth patterns are the perfect way to expand on your skills as a crocheter and get comfortable with new stitches on something small before you attempt using them in a bigger project.

Below you can find the ultimate list of free crochet dishcloth patterns. I hope you enjoy them!
