Free Herringbone Dishcloth Crochet Pattern – How to

Looking for a free dishcloth pattern to try? This double crochet herringbone dishcloth crochet pattern is a great project to try. It uses the herringbone double crochet stitch and the single crochet stitch.

Dish cloth patterns are great for learning a new stitch. They make a great beginner project too. You don’t need much yarn, 2 skeins of cotton yarn to make to matching dishcloths.

You can use as a cleaning cloth, dishcloth, dish towel, or washcloth. Cotton dish cloths work great and are durable.

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 love the yellow and orange. I chose that color combo because it is so bright and cheerful. At least my cleaning cloths can be fun even if cleaning isn’t.
