Crochet Scrubbies: 21 Must Make Crochet Dishcloth Patterns

Crochet dishcloth patterns for beginner crocheters to seasoned pros

By: Michele Dobbins, Editor for
21 Must Make Crochet Dishcloth Patterns

We all know a good kitchen is the center of a happy home; it’s the place where you gather, hunt for snacks, and prepare meals for the people you love. For such a personal place, your essentials should be handmade, like these 21 Must Make Crochet Dishcloth Patterns. Dish washing may not be the most fun part of being in the kitchen, but using spunky, colorful kitchen crafts will make you smile at the style in your sink.

From simple and traditional squares to funky crochet owl scrubbies, these free crochet patterns have every possible variation of one of the most necessary items in your kitchen. There are colorful options, like the Sweet Cupcake Dishcloth, or there are more subdued choices that will go with any kitchen color scheme, like the Grayscale Beginners Crochet Dishcloth. This collection also includes circular dishcloth patterns, which have a mesmerizing spiral effect that is hard to capture in any other shape. For those dishcloth rebels out there, there are also several patterns that take dishcloths to a whole new level with food and animal shapes. These crochet dishcloths all combine function with personality and can be used to clean your dishes, wipe down your counter tops, or decorate your sink. With all these options, you can set the tone for your own kitchen theme. Because they’re usually quick and painless to whip up, they also make great homemade gifts, and you could easily make a set to bring to a housewarming party as a unique, heartfelt gesture. With such endless combinations of pattern and color, it makes sense to work up several, and they’re such useful items that you won’t be sorry to have a few extra around. These out-of-the-box patterns will make your dishcloths a talking point and a constant reminder of how valuable your crochet hooks can be.

How to Crochet a Dishcloth 101: Beginner Crochet Dishcloth Patterns

Crochet dishcloth patterns like the ones collected here are one of the best ways to learn how to crochet. Their shapes are simple and often involve only one type of stitch, so you'll be able to catch on in no time. However, just because they’re beginner crochet patterns doesn’t mean that they aren’t useful! This is no practice swatch that you’ll just throw away later; instead, these will be useful kitchen items for many years to come. 

The Classic Square: Easy Crochet Dishcloths

The traditional take on an easy crochet dishcloth can be a way to let your crochet skills shine. This collection offers endless variations of the classic square dishcloth, whether you are mixing up the colors with a rainbow of stripes like the Rainbow Sherbet Dishcloth or deciding to test out a new stitch type, like the Crinkle Stitch Crochet Dishcloth. Their tough, ribbed texture make them great for getting rid of tricky stains.

Circular Crochet Dishcloth Patterns

Circular crochet is a fun way to reinterpret a dishcloth crochet pattern. By giving it a nontraditional shape and interesting texture, it will no longer be just an ordinary rag laying around, but instead a decorative part of your kitchen. Even better, a lot of these circular dishcloth patterns can double as coasters, so the time you spend on this project will be two for the price of one. 

Scrubbies with Style: Funky Crochet Dishcloth Patterns

This collection of scrubbie patterns has so much personality, your kitchen will hardly be able to contain it. From owls to pineapples to ice cream, these little guys won't even look like tools for work, but their tough yarn quality lets them scrub with the best of them. Even your kids might perk up at the chance to play in the sink with fish toys (and who really needs to tell them they're helping you clean, right?).
