If you want to learn how to crochet, a crochet dishcloth is a great project. This crochet granny square dishcloth can make a really useful handmade gift!

Make it especially nice with some  dish soap from Method. I am loving their new holiday bottles, available at Target!

Granny Square Crochet Dishcloth

Pattern credit Lily Sugar & Cream Yarn.  Crochet in Lily Sugar’n Cream or similar cotton yarn with 6 mm crochet hook (U.S. J or 10) I used a size H hook. I also strayed from the alternating color combination and also made some solid color dishcloths.

  1. I clean my dishcloths by spraying them with a mixture of water and white vinegar and putting them in the microwave for 30, on high.

  2. To those wondering what’s the best way to wash these since they will usually get full of oils & “stuff”, use the warmest water setting & oxygen-based bleach (Oxy-Clean comes to mind). I used to work as a maid & used Big Orange cleaner & Murphy’s oil. The rags would get tossed in the wash without the need for additional detergent so if you use them with cleansers, I would think you wouldn’t need to add anything to their load.

  3. These are soooo beautiful! I have always wanted to give this a try, thank you Cindy 🙂

  4. I like this idea, to have pretty dish cloths. But I bleach mine to clean them, which obviously would be a bad idea with these pretty colored ones. How do you properly clean them?
