Two for One Cable Stitch Crochet Dishcloth gives you two interpretations of crochet dishcloth patterns using the fabulous cable stitch. The cable stitch has a really nice bumpy texture that forms stripes even when you're working with only one color. One pattern makes the stitches slant in opposite directions depending on what row you're working on, while the other has slants that all go in the same direction. This pattern includes a diagram that lays out how to work with the different crochet stitches, so it is easy to learn how to do this if you have never tried before.

I really love the idea of adding another stitch to my repertoire and these wash cloth patterns will be the perfect place to learn it! It's a lovely stitch and it will add such wonderful texture to whatever pattern I add it to. The artist has nicely written directions as well as charts and even links to visual tutorials for us visual learners! Thanks so much for this free pattern!!!

The designer could have just made up a really simple design for these dishcloths but choose instead to get fancy and make something anyone would be happy to have in their kitchen. These cable stitch crochet dishcloths are really impressive.

There is no such thing as having too many dishcloths. With this pattern, I would probably find it hard to use because these are just too nice. I guess the extra texture of the cable will help in keeping those dishes clean.

So classic and sophisticated are these cabled dishcloths. This is a new stitch/pattern technique for me to learn. I have decades of crochet experience but not so much with the cables. A small project such as this dishcloth would be a great place for me to start practicing this particular cable!

I really like this project. I love working with cables anyway, but havent tried this particular technique. It would be fun to make a pair up just as suggestedthe half cable in stripes and full cable in the solidand bundle them together for a gift or for sale. I also appreciate that the designer equates the different hook size to the finished size. I dont have to guess that way!
