Very Basic Dishcloth Pattern. Free Pattern in 4 Sizes

When you purchase through links on my site, I may earn an affiliate commission.
Here’s how it works.

This week I have chosen another SUPER easy stitch pattern for you worked solely with single crochet stitches. This is the very basic dishcloth pattern. A small change in the order of the stitches worked gives you a lovely look – a bit of texture – and practice working crossed stitches. If you can do this one –  you will be able to do the half double and double crochet crossed stitches too!
