Make your own Eco, Reusable, Washable Dishcloths!!

Here is a quick and easy Eco Dishcloth, made from Eco/Fairtrade cotton.

I made 3 and use them for all the time. They, surprisingly, stay white, despite lots of tomato sauce! Just make sure you rinse thoroughly afterwards.


Yarn: 50g Debbie Bliss Eco Fairtrade Cotton

Hook: 4.5mm

Size: 7.5 inches x 7.5 inches approx

ch chain
sc single crochet stitch
hdc half double crochet stitch
slst slip stitch
st stitch
tch turning chain.

For UK terms substitute dc for sc and sc for slst

The Pattern

Ch 31
Row 1: Miss 2ch (count as 1hdc), *slst into next ch, 1hdc into next ch; repeat from *, ending with slst into last ch, turn.
Row 2: 2ch (count as 1hdc), miss 1st, *slst into next hdc, 1hdc into next slst; rep from * ending with slst into the tch, turn.
Row 3 – 29: Repeat Row 2.
Do not turn.
To work edging: 2ch, work sc neatly along the edges. Into the 3 corners work (sc, 2ch, sc). In the 4th corner, 10 ch, slst into next st. Fasten off.

To Finish: Weave in the ends. Wash before using.
