Lavender Fields Dishcloth | Free Crochet Pattern + Chart

This pretty crochet dishcloth features an easy crochet stitch pattern that reminds me of flowers... lavender flowers because of the purple color.

The free crochet pattern comes as written instructions and a crochet chart at the the bottom of the page.

I called it a dishloth, but you can use it as you wish: as a baby cloth, or as spa cloth/ washcloth, you name it!

Made with easy crochet stitches, it works up pretty fast and it has lovely results. I hope you will love it!

The beautiful texture of this crochet (dish)cloth is created with only 2 rows repeats, alternating one row of V-stitches with one row of 3 double crochet groups worked into the chain spaces of the V-sts from the previous row.

I really love this stitch pattern! I think it would make a lovely blanket also! Just start with a larger foundation chain base, taking in count the multiple.

To give a finished look, you can work an edging around the dishloth made of two rounds of sc stitches worked along each side of the dishcloth.
But this is optional, you can also leave the dishcloth as is, without the edging.

SIZE:

approx. 8 inches x 8 inches (20 X 20 cm) after light blocking

GAUGE:

18 dc sts and 9 rows worked in pattern = 10 cm x 10 cm (approx. 4" × 4")
(using a with hook size 4 mm (U.S. G or 6))

The gauge is not critical for this project. Your dishcloth might turn out smaller or larger as in the pattern indicated.

MULTIPLE:

3 sts+ 4. Add 1 more for the foundation chain.

SUPPLIES:

THE YARN:

To make this dishcloth I have used 30 g of Drops Cotton Light yarn, in colorway "Light Purple".
(You can substitute it with any other dk cotton yarn of your choice.)


Yarn weight:

dk, 3, light.

Fiber content:

50% Cotton, 50% Polyester

Ball Weight:

50g; Length: 105 metres

OTHER SUPPLIES:

STITCHES AND ABBREVIATIONS (US TERMS):

  • ch: chain
  • st: stitch
  • slst: slip stitch
  • Sk: skip
  • sc: single crochet
  • dc: double crochet
  • ch1sp: chain 1 space
  • beg: beginning
  • RS: right side
  • WS: wrong side

Special stitches:

NOTE: Instead of chaining 3 at the beginning of the rows worked with double crochet stitches, I have used the chainless starting double crochet stitch that gives a nice edge without holes.
But if you prefer, you can replace it with ch 3, if that's working best for you.

The csdc (alternative the ch3) will count as the first dc of a row! To work next st, skip the first st.
