Primrose Crochet Dishcloth Pattern -Crochet Stitch


What to learn how to make an easy crochet dishcloth? Try this variation of a shell crochet stitch using this free washcloth crochet tutorial with a free printable pattern.

I added a simple border to the dishcloth for a more finished look. For the border I used the first row of the pattern.

You can use as a square crochet washcloth as a cleaning cloth, dish towel, or dishcloth. They work great and are durable.

This crochet stitch makes a variation of a shell design using double crochet stitches. It is a simple 2 row repeat, great for watching TV and crocheting. It is a easy stitch with great texture.
