Crochet Dishcloths and Save Money

Crocheting can be relaxing for some, and a very good way to save money by making household items such as dishcloths, dishtowels, pot scrubbers, crocheted potholders or crocheted photo frames. Most items can be made with a few basic crocheting stitches such as single crochet, double crochet and slip stitch. Crochet dishcloths and save money, you'll love them.

I've had homemade knit/crochet dishcloths given to me and I love them. I decided to research how to make my own crocheted dishcloths. I don't knit so it had to be a crocheted one. I took a pattern and refined it a bit. Let me show you how to crochet dishcloths for yourself and save money.

Instructions and things you will need to crochet dishcloths and save money:
  • 2 Ounces of worsted weight cotton yarn
  • G sized crochet hook

Crocheted dishcloths can make great gifts and it is a great way to save money. It is cheaper to buy a little yarn, or use odds and ends of yarn you have, and crochet them than it is to purchase them. In addition, you can give your dishcloths a personal touch.

Let’s get started, chain 36 stitches.
The first row: put a single crochet in the second stitch from the hook and each of the remaining chain stitch. (35 single crochet) Chain 2 and turn.

Rows 2-20: put a double crochet in each single crochet. Chain 2 and turn.

***Row 20 only chain 1 at the end going into single crochet.

Row 21: Put a single crochet in each double crochet. Now, you are ready to

make it look a little nicer than a plain old square.

For the edging chain 4, in the 2nd single crochet from the hook, make a slipstitch, and draw though. Continue to chain 4 and attach, all the way around your dishcloth. It makes a nicer looking scalloped edge.

Tip: When you crochet dishcloths and save money make sure and use the correct yarn or it won't absorb.

This is a great pattern, Angelgirlpj! I've crocheted dishcloths to give away as presents but never made any for myself. I just may have to do some now with your easy pattern!
