Hey everyone! Today I’ll be sharing with you my grit stitch dishcloth pattern. This free pattern will help you learn how to make a double crochet stitch and a single crochet stitch while also completing a beginner project. These dishcloths would look great in a lot of different colors, so gather your supplies and let’s begin! I hope you enjoy this grit stitch dishcloth pattern!
GRIT STITCH DISHCLOTH PATTERN
- H-8 Hook (I’m using Clover Amour)
- Cotton yarn (I’m using Bernat Handicrafter Cotton in Salt and Pepper Print)
- Tapestry Needle
FINISHED SIZE: 11×11
Chain 35 or a multiple of 2+1
ROW 1: dc in 3rd chain from hook (the 2 skipped chains count as 1 sc)
*skip next chain, work 1 sc and 1 dc in next chain.
Repeat from * until two stitches remain. Skip next chain and work 1 sc into the last chain and turn.
ROW 2: Chain 1 (counts as 1 sc), work 1 dc into the 1st stitch
*skip next stitch, work 1 sc and 1 dc into the next stitch. Repeat from * across until 2 stitches remain. Skip next stitch and work 1 sc into the top of the turning chain, turn.
ROWS 3-23: Repeat row 2 until your work measures 10” or until desired length.
BORDER: Chain 1 and turn. Make 1 sc in each stitch around entire dishcloth making sure to put 3 scs into each corner. Join with a sl st.
To Finish: Leave at least 6 inches for your tail. Cut yarn. Yarn over your hook and pull through the last stitch of your row and tighten. To weave in all yarn ends, thread your yarn in your tapestry needle and go in between the stitches one way and back the other way. This will help keep your project from coming apart.
You now have your very own grit stitch dishcloth! These make great gifts for family members, friends, or even yourself. Make a bunch in some bright summer colors.
