Crochet pattern for a dishcloth with a thick, double-sided waffle pattern.

I designed this dishcloth from scratch to create a modern-looking, thick, robust dishcloth that is easy to work. The design includes a neat edging for a ‘finished’ look and an optional hanging loop making these easily nice enough to give as gifts.

The finished dishcloth is 20cm or 8inches square but the pattern includes how to vary the size and other aspects of the basic design should you wish to.

To complete one dishcloth you will need:

  • 88m (96yards) of aran (worsted weight, Category 4) yarn
  • 4mm (US: G-6) crochet hook
  • a blunt yarn needle

This is an ideal pattern for a crochet beginner. Each step is fully illustrated with colour photos and tips are provided throughout. Plus all my crochet patterns come with my full e-mail support for any equation whatsoever.

For more experienced crocheters or once you are familiar with the pattern, the file also includes a one-page unillustrated pattern in standard crochet notation for ease of printing and quick reference. The best of both worlds!

The pattern includes detailed notes on yarn choice.

I hate weaving in yarn ends, so this pattern is worked all in one, without breaking off the yarn at any point, so there’s only one yarn end to work in!

This pattern is available in both UK and US crochet terminology. Both files will be available for you on purchase and you can choose whichever you prefer to use.

BONUS: The pattern also contains notes on how to make a scarf using this same attractive ‘waffle’ stitch!
