Best Crochet Dish Cloth or Wash Cloth Pattern Ever

I have found the best crochet dish cloth or wash cloth pattern ever!! I know what some of you are probably thinking… why crochet a dish cloth when you can just buy them? Because, they last longer, work better, hold water better and they look better to me. Plus, I can make them in whatever size I want! I don’t have to stick with the standard size at the store. They are fun to make and just as inexpensive as a good quality dish cloth from the store. There is also the therapeutic benefits from crocheting as it relaxes and calms me.

That’s a lot of benefits to me! So, I started searching around for some of the best crochet dish cloth patterns I could find. I wanted one where it had little ribs for scrubbing. Low and behold.. Charmaine over at CDM Handmade has listed a some great patterns for FREE!!! I love freebies! So not only is the pattern free but she is an incredible crochet artist. Within her little trio series of wash cloths I fell in love with the Crunch Stitch Crochet Wash Cloth.

I am extremely hard on dish cloths as I would prefer to wash what few dishes I have instead of washing them in a 1/2 full dishwasher. (No need to waste expensive dishwasher tabs or powder and the water when you can wash them by hand in just a couple of minutes) As you can see the dish cloths hold up quite well. They don’t stretch out too much and look even better when they are wet.

So a big round of applause and kudos to Charmaine over at for offering a great pattern for free. I can’t wait to try the other patterns in her trio series.

Do you have a favorite crochet pattern for dish cloths, wash cloths, or towels? I would love to see what everyone else is using so please leave a comment below. If you have tried Charmaine’s patterns I would also love to know which is your favorite of hers. Don’t forget to share this post with your friends and family or fellow crochet buddies 🙂

Happy Crocheting!
