Wicked Easy Dishcloth (or Facecloth) tutorial


This is a great little project while sitting in front of the television in the evening.  I’ve made as many as 3 in one sitting. And I’ve also had nights where I spent alot of time ripping out what I had done incorrectly!


Crochet hook size H (gauge is not terribly important)

This pattern uses a half double crochet (hdc) and to make a half double crochet:
(yarn over, insert hook in chain, yarn over pull through one loop, yarn over and pull through all 3 loops)

About an ounce of cotton Sugar ‘N Cream or Bernat Handicrafter cotton

1) Chain 26

2) 1 hdc in 2nd chain from hook and in each stitch across

3) Chain 2 (counts as first hdc in next row) and turn — 25 stitches

4) Work 1 hdc in each stitch across and in top chain of  chain 2.

5) Ch 2 and turn

Repeat steps 4 and 5 until cloth is desired size. Mine work out to be about 8 – 8.5″ square

To finish, work slip stitches around three sides of the cloth, cut yarn and weave in the end.

Done!!! Told you it was wicked easy, eh?
