I really love how the single crochet, double crochet, and the linked double crochet stitches look together, they create a solid fabric and the result is a strong, durable fabric that is ideal for crocheting dishcloth or washcloth. And the textured pattern will hold up very well in the washing process. But also, I think this is a great stitch for textured crochet baby blankets, sweaters, cardigans, and so many other projects that ask for a great texture and a really good drape.

I think the best dishcloth for washing dishes is the crocheted ones because they last longer, hold water better and it’s more sustainable and eco-friendly. And of course, it’s a good reason to buy more yarn because we always need more dishcloths for us or for a friend so if a few hundred skeins of yarn appear like magic in the closet are for dishcloths!

For my crochet dish washcloth, I’ve used 50 g of this  (50g= 170m/ 1.76oz= 185 yards) and a 3 mm hook.

This is very high-quality cotton yarn.

This yarn is made from 100% combed Turkish cotton, which is soft, flexible, and exceptionally durable. Textiles in Turkish cotton stay beautiful for many years and only get softer with use. This yarn also excels when it comes to its absorbing powers, but is quick-drying at the same time.

The color chart includes plenty of gorgeous colors, you just have to decide what color you like and get started. Here you can buy this yarn:

The gauge for the stitch: for 10 cm (4″) with a 3 cm hook:  25 stitches x  16 rows.

The final dimensions are 26 cm x 25 cm (10.2 inches x 9.8 inches)

The video tutorial:

Start with 66 chains.
Row 1: chain 2 (don’t count as a stitch), double crochet in 3rd chain from the hook, linked double crochet in next chain. Continue to crochet linked double crochet in next and every chain to end, turn. You should have 64 stitches.
Row 2: chain 1 (don’t count as a stitch), *single crochet in next stitch, double crochet in next stitch*. Repeat *-* until the end of the row, turn.
You should have 64 stitches.
Row 3:chain 2 (don’t count as a stitch), double crochet in next stitch, linked double crochet in next stitch. Continue to crochet linked double crochet in next and every stitch to end, turn. You should have 64 stitches.

Repeat from row 2 until you have 39 rows.

Don’t cut the yarn and continue to crochet a single crochet stitch edge around the cloth. Slip stitch in the first stitch to close the round. Tie off and weave in the ends. Watch the video tutorial to see exactly how I’ve crocheted the edge.

If you’ve made this crochet dish washcloth for sale or as a gift I recommend washing the clothes by hand or on the washing machine at a maximum of 40 Celsius degrees; I prefer 20 Celsius degrees for all my cotton items. Dry it flat and then iron it choosing the temperature for cotton. The dishcloth will smell and look better.
