The Sedgewick Dishcloth and Coaster Set features two simple crochet patterns using the sedge stitch. This stitch creates a cute, textured fabric that works perfectly for a coaster and dishcloth! These are super quick to make and practical in your home/kitchen, and are a great way to add long lasting, quality products to your home! You can pop them in the washer and dryer and they will last for years!


These patterns make a coaster that is approx. 4.5 x 4.5 inches (11.5 x 11.5 cm) and a dishcloth that is approx. 7.5 x 7.5 inches (19 x 19 cm). To make a larger/smaller item, cast on more/less stitches in multiples of 3, and alter # of rows to match.

Needles required:

5 mm crochet hook (US H/8)
may need other size hook to meet gauge


Note: Gauge is not super important for this design, as the sizing of the finished items does not need to be exact. I recommend using a hook that will get you fairly close to this gauge, but you can also add extra sts/rows to alter the size.

Gauge swatch should be in sedge stitch pattern, and blocked (steam blocked ideally)

3.75” x 3.75” (9.5 x 9.5 cm) = 15 sts x 11 rows (this is 5 “puffs” wide)

Yarn required: any worsted weight cotton yarn ( I used KnitPicks Dishie yarn, 190 yds per 100 g)

Yardage required:

~15 yards (coaster) / 45 yards (dishcloth)
yardage is an approximation at this point, and is based on the size listed above.
