Looking for a free dish cloth pattern to try? This 123 sedge stitch dishcloth crochet pattern is a great project to try. It uses the half double stitch, the double crochet stitch and the single crochet stitch.
You can use as a square crocheted dishcloth as a cleaning cloth, dish towel, or wash cloth. They work great and are durable.
This stitch makes a diagonal pattern. It is a simple repeat, great for watching TV and crocheting.
These are great gifts too. You can choose a color to go with their décor or a neutral that would go with anyone’s style. They are practical too.
I been making all kinds of different dishcloths free herringbone dish cloths crochet pattern, creamsicle dishcloth pattern, and even berry dishcloth so I decided to do another set in a different stitch. I also made this blue wave dishtowel using the ripple stitch.
Next, I will be sharing a baby blanket blanket using this stitch.
I love the blue. I choose because it is my favorite color. At least my cleaning cloths can be fun even if cleaning isn’t. I tried a new yarn the Lion Brand reuse in the smaller multi-colored wash cloth. The yarn is marked worsted weight but it is definitely on the thinner side. You also only get 2.1 oz of the multi-colored so to make a larger cloth like the ones I usually make, I should of got two.
