Grandma's Scrap Thread Dish/Wash Cloth


This free crochet pattern uses scrap yarn making it an easy project to put together. Grandma's Scrap Thread Dish/Wash Cloth uses crochet thread and the double crochet stitch. If you have leftover yarn this is a great pattern!


Crochet Hook: E/4 or 3.5 mm hook

Yarn Weight: (0) Lace (33-40 stitches to 4 inches). Includes crochet thread.


  • Crochet Thread #3
  • Crochet Hook: E
  • Tapestry/Yarn Needle

ch - chain RS – right side st - stitch
dc – double crochet sc – single crochet sl st – slip stitch

1. I needed to use up some left over  #3 thread. This dish/wash cloth was  made to honor my grandma who  ALWAYS had a crochet hook in her  hand to work on her dishcloths.
2. When you look closely, you can see  that I joined the brown about 12 sts  into the row when I ran out of  green.
3. The green edging came from a fuller left over thread.
4. This is a PERFECT way to use up Edging: left over size 3 and 5 threads. Working on the RS, join thread in the middle st on the bottom of the cloth.

Round 1: Ch 3, dc in each st around and
Row 1: Ch 50, sc in 2nd ch and everyone 4 dc in each corner. Sl st to beginning ch 3. to the beginning, ch 3, turn (48 sc)
Round 2: Ch 3, dc in each st around and
Row 2- 24: Dc in same sp, *ch 1, sk 1, dc 4 dc in each corner. Sl st to beginning ch 3. in next st,* repeat from * to * across, ch 3,  turn. (24 dc, 24 ch-1 sps) Round 3: Ch 1, sl st into each dc around, sl st to beginning ch 1 and fasten off.
Row 25: Repeat Row 2 but Fasten Off at  and no ch 3 at the end of the row. Weave in all lose threads.
