The great texture in this dishcloth is achieved by alternating single crochet and treble crochet stitches. It could also be used as a pot holder!

Materials List

• I used a 4mm/size G6 hook.

• 1 ball (1½ oz) worsted weight cotton. I used Bernat Handicrafter Cotton Ultrasoft, Violet Veil Ombre.

Finished Size

Mine are about 7 1/2" square...will vary depending on your gauge.


Not important for this project.


Stitches used: chain stitch (ch), single crochet (sc), treble crochet (tr).

This looks like a great pattern. I just copied it and want to use it for making dishcloths for gifts and some for myself. I have knitted dishcloths but they aren't as thick or durable as this appears to be. Thanks for sharing the pattern!

Just what I wanted to learn to do.  Will be a great practice project, as well as a needed item.  Surely I can master treble crochet and maybe even double crochet.  Thank you for sharing.
