Seed Stitch Crochet Dishcloth (Free Pattern)

This seed stitch crochet dishcloth tutorial will provide all the instruction you need to make your own.

Seed Stitch Crochet Dishcloth Free Pattern

This Seed Stitch Crochet Dishcloth is so beautiful, isn't it? Once you learn the seed stitch, you will see how easy it is to make this 6" x 6" dishcloth in any colors you desire. It's a simple pattern and definitely one of the best crochet dishcloth patterns we've seen.

This free pattern is a great idea for a quick crochet project, especially if you want to add a bit of color to your kitchen. A pretty crochet dishcloth like this would also make a fabulous gift idea for a housewarming party.

As you will see from the notes by the pattern, this version uses three colors: green, yellow, and white. However, it's just one of the options. Make this in a solid color, do a double color stripe, or work up every row in a different color. The possibilities are endless and, with the seed stitch, all options come out beautifully.

This design is so festive, I love it. It's bright and fun but can be used year-round.

Neato! Vintage-looking! Something about this one that makes me think of 1950's gramma's kitchen. I adore the simplicity and dainty look to the seed stitch, and the dual colors used are so pretty. How about using this pattern idea to give your current kitchen towels a loop to hang them?

If youve already worked the tutorial included in this post, then youre already on your way to finishing this dishcloth. This post doesnt include all the wonderful photos that appear in the tutorial, so if you get stuck, just hop on over and refresh your memory. Try some of Rhonddas other designs as well. Dishcloths are a great way to expand your skills without committing time or yarn to a big project.

I love making dishcloths, washcloths, and spa cloths as gifts and for myself to use. My Aunt loves these too and she used to make them when she was younger before her hands hurt her so much. She recently had her house burgled and of all things to have stolen were all the handmade cloths that I gave her.

I guess you should take that as a compliment???
