Single Crochet Stitch

Single Crochet swatch

Single crochet or sc is one of the six basic crochet stitches you will learn when you are trying to crochet for the first time. It’s the basis for a lot of different stitches, quick to stitch and makes a dense fabric that’s great for getting things clean.

Double Crochet Stitch

Double Crochet Stitch swatch

Double crochet is another basic crochet stitch that you'll learn when you are new to crocheting. The stitches incorporate yarn overs and are twice the size of single crochet stitches. 

They’re really quick to stitch and are among the most popular simple stitches.

Half Double Crochet Stitch

Half Double Crochet Stitch swatch

Half double crochet stitch is similar to single crochet and double crochet and comes in between them in terms of size.

Crochet Moss Stitch

Crochet Even Moss Stitch swatch

Moss stitch is made up of two stitches in sequence, chain stitch, and single crochet stitch. It is a simple crochet stitch for any beginner but also a great stitch for advanced crocheters. This stitch is excellent for making shawls, scarves, cowls, sweaters, or blankets. The texture gives your washcloths a little more scrubbing power.

Lemon Peel Stitch

The lemon peel stitch is another lovely stitch that combines two basic crochet stitches: single and double crochet. It is done by alternating the stitches across each row. This stitch creates a beautiful texture similar to a lemon rind, which it was named after. 

Suzette Stitch

Crochet Suzette Stitch swatch

A Suzette stitch is crocheted by alternating single and double crochets. It is similar to lemon peel stitch, but in this version both stitches are crocheted in the same stitch, skipping a stitch before working another round of sc and dc in the next stitch. 

Waffle Stitch

Crochet Waffle Stitch swatch

Waffle stitch is done by crocheting double crochets and a post-double crochet combination. The raised stitch in front of the post double crochet followed by a double crochet gives it a distinct look similar to waffles.

Shell Stitch

Crochet Easy Shell Stitch swatch

A shell stitch takes the shape of semi-circles and arcs. They are made by working 3 or more double crochets (or other stitches) into the same space to create a fan, shell, or scalloped crochet stitch. It is often used as a border around patterns or in staggered rows to create a distinct pattern in the fabric. 

Basketweave Stitch

Crochet Basketweave Stitch swatch

A basketweave crochet stitch is done with front and back post-double crochet (known as fpdc and bpdc). This stitch is also done on repeated rows that create a woven pattern similar to the look of a basket. 

Grit Stitch

Crochet Grit Stitch swatch

A grit stitch looks like a moss or mesh stitch and creates a tightly textured fabric that is dense and firm. This stitch is great for washcloths, scarves, and afghans.

Common Questions About How to Crochet a Washcloth

Before crocheting a dishcloth or washcloth, you might have a few questions about what you need to get started.

How Long Does it Take to Crochet a Dishcloth?

The length of time you need to complete a crocheted dishcloth or washcloth depends on the level of your crochet skills and the pattern you are following. Some advanced crocheters can finish a dishcloth pattern within 30 minutes, but even as a newer crocheter you can probably stitch a washcloth in a day. 

Is it Easy to Crochet a Dishcloth?

Dishcloths are small projects typically made of basic crochet stitches. They are great for beginner crocheters or people who are learning about different stitches. You can make them anytime and they are great projects for travel. 

Can you Make a Dishcloth with One Skein of Yarn?

Most medium-sized crochet dishcloths can be made with one skein of yarn, or less. You can even combine leftover yarns to make a striped dishcloth if you like. 

How Many Chains Do You Need to Crochet a Dishcloth?

Like any crochet project, dishcloths begin with a chain. The number of chains you crochet will determine the width of your dishcloth. 

The average dishcloth might be 25 or 30 chains long, but it will depend on the pattern you are using and what multiples of stitches are required for the stitch pattern you want to use. 

What is the Standard Size to Make a Dishcloth?

The standard size of a crocheted dishcloth or washcloth is usually 8″ by 8″. But you can also create your length and width if you want your project to be longer or shorter.

Small washcloths are great for washing your face or removing makeup, while longer dishcloths can be used as hand towels in the kitchen or bathroom. 

Can I Use Acrylic Yarn to Crochet a Dishcloth?

Technically you could use acrylic yarn for a washcloth but it’s not the best choice. They don’t hold water as well as other fibers, and they don’t wear well when washed frequently. 

If you want to use your dishcloths as potholders or oven mitts as well, acrylic yarn can melt when hot things touch it. 

The exception to this is scrubby yarns that are designed to be used for washcloths.

Cotton and linen are generally much better choices because they’re more washable, hold up better when used, and just work better than washcloths made of other fibers.

Supplies Needed to Crochet a Dishcloth

Another great thing about crocheting washcloths is that you don’t need a lot of supplies to make them. But choosing the correct items for your project can make a big difference.

Choosing the Perfect Yarn to Crochet a Dishcloth or Washcloth

There are plenty of yarns that you can use in making dishcloths or washcloths. But if you wonder which yarns and fibers work best for dishcloths, here's what you must know.

The best kind of yarn to use for dishcloths or washcloths is 100% cotton. Cotton blends like cotton and polyester work too, as long as it is at least 85% cotton. These yarns also make the stitches pop and create the best textures. 

When it comes to yarn weight, worsted or medium weight yarn is the most popular choice.

When choosing yarns to use in making dishcloths, remember these tips:

Durability – dishcloths, and washcloths are meant to be used frequently. So choose a yarn that can last for a long time. It must withstand getting wet over and over, being used for scrubbing, and being thrown in the washer. Choose a yarn that is durable so you can use your dishcloth/washcloth for a long time. 

Color – another tip that you must remember when choosing a yarn for your dishcloth is to consider the color of the yarn. The color you choose will impact your finished product and how it goes with your kitchen decor. Yarns come in various, vivid, and happy colors so make sure that you choose the colors well. 

Cost – since you are making dishcloths that will be used daily, find yarns that are affordable but do not compromise quality. The good news is there are a lot of great cotton yarns that are affordable.

Here are a few of our favorite yarns for making dishcloths and washcloths:

Crochet Hooks for Crocheting a Dishcloth or Washcloth

When it comes to choosing the right crochet hook for making your dishcloth, you can use the one recommended on the label of the yarn you choose or what your pattern recommends. 

If you are going to use cotton yarns and worsted-weight yarns, a size H or 8mm hook works well. 

Notions and Tools Needed to Crochet a Dishcloth or Washcloth

In addition to your yarn and hook, there are a few other supplies you will need to make your process easier. 

A small pair of scissors for trimming your yarn and a tapestry needle for weaving in ends is essential. If you’re having trouble keeping the sides of your project straight, you can use a stitch marker to mark the last stitch on each side so you know where to stop stitching on each side.
