The Waffle stitch wash/dishcloth is perfect for every day use so evidently you need to crochet one for you!  At the beginning the Waffle stitch crochet may seem a little bit difficult, but actually is very easy. Just be patient and you’ll see how beautiful it is and I’m sure you will enjoy this project.

Dishcloth patterns are a great crochet projects not only for learning a new crochet stitch but to practice a new stitch technique. So, by the time you’ll finish this project you’ll have learned a new stitch and you’ll feel great seeing how an actually item is shaping.


Crocheted dishcloths are great for beginners. You don’t need to much yarn and is a good way to practice before you take on a larger crochet project. And this free Waffle crochet dishcloth pattern is a two rows repetition pattern. But at first you have to know how to crochet the single crochet stitch, the double crochet stitch and the front post double crochet.


You can use them as a kitchen cleaning cloth, dish towel, or wash cloth, they work great, are durable, sustainable and very practical. These Waffle stitch crochet wash/dishcloth are great gifts too. You can choose a color to go with their décor or a neutral that in fact would go with anyone’s style. And if you choose an organic or another luxury yarn you’ll have a great crochet dishcloth for you or as a last minute gift.

The written instructions:

How to crochet the Front post double crochet: yarn over, insert hook from the front around the stem of the double crochet in the row below from right to left, then complete the stitch in the usual way.

1. Row 1: dc in 3 rd ch from the hook, dc until the end of the row;

2. Row 2: 2 ch, 1 dc, *1 fpdc, 2 dc*, repeat *-*, 1 fpdc, 1 dc;

3. Row 3: 2 ch, 2 dc, *2 fpdc, 1 dc*, repeat *-*, 1 dc;

Make sure that where you have a double crochet on the previous row to make a front post double crochet and where you have a front post double crochet you will make a double crochet.

Repeat the pattern from row 2 until you reach the desire dimension.

After you finish the Waffle Stitch crochet a sc around the cloth.

For my wash/dishcloth I’ve started with 62 ch and I’ve crocheted the Alpine stitch for 28 rows. Don’t forget to make the round of sc at the end.

My wash/dishcloth has 23 cm (9 inch) length and 21 cm (8.5 inch) width.
