Single Crochet Dishcloths and Washcloths

Our single crochet stitch tutorial also includes a free pattern and instructions for making a beginner-friendly dishcloth. If you’re brand new to crochet, a dishcloth is an excellent project for learning your single crochet stitch — because it doesn’t have to fit anybody, and it doesn’t require any complicated shaping. Furthermore, it will scrub your dishes clean even if it has one zillion mistakes in it. If you make mistakes in a wearable project, you might end up being too embarrassed to wear it — but, with a dishcloth, nobody is going to notice your mistakes or care about them. So, if you’re a beginner, definitely give this project a try. You can never have too many dishcloths (never mind what Marie Kondo has to say about that).
