This cotton dishcloth features openwork stripes crocheted using a combination of basic stitches. The finishing touch is a lacy picot-stitch edging.

Abbreviations Used in This Pattern:

Supply List:

Yarn: You will need approximately 4 ounces of worsted weight kitchen cotton yarn.

The example was crocheted using Lily's Original Sugar 'n Cream yarn in the cream color. This yarn is available in many different colors, so choose one that complements your kitchen. Feel free to substitute another worsted weight cotton yarn if you prefer.

Crochet Hook: size H / 8 (5.00 mm.) or size needed to obtain the correct gauge.

Finished Size:

When the dishcloth is laid flat, it measures 14.5" high by 14" wide including the edging.

Without the edging, it measures 10.5" high by 10" wide.


15 sc sts and 13 rows = 4"

Tip: Gauge is not critical for this project; it's no problem if your dishcloth turns out slightly larger or smaller than the example. It's still a good idea to check your gauge, but don't waste time ripping out stitches unless it's way off.
