The Ultimate List of Dishcloths

A round-up of dishcloths that will help you learn



There is no secret that I love making dishcloths. I especially love making ones that are going to help me learn a new stitch or technique. They work as great swatches. Then after I have learned something new I can easily re-gift my little swatch.

For this round up I wanted to provide you with dishcloths that had something different about them. Take a look through them and learn something new. There are 12 knit patterns and 12 crochet patterns.

Crafty Containers

A Free Crochet Pattern


 Do you need a simple storage solution for your desk or shelves? This is a very easy project that can be done in a short amount of time. It uses an oatmeal container and some simple crocheting skills. They are sturdy and once you are done you cannot tell that they used to take up space in your pantry!

The Crafty Containers are another pattern that I am moving over from Crochetvolution. For this project I knew I wanted to make new samples and pictures. I chose bright colors in worsted cotton this time.

I still use these containers after 3 years, so it was time for an update. They sit at my sewing desk. The larger container is perfect for my Granny's old knitting needles. And the smaller container is perfect for hooks and loose notions.

Don't forget to add this pattern to your favorites on Ravelry.

Difficulty: Easy
Size: 18 oz oatmeal container cut to the size you would like
Materials:
  • Any 4-ply worsted weight yarn in 2 colors 
  • H/8 (5.00mm size) hook
  • A cleaned out 18 oz oatmeal container
Gauge: After the first four rounds it should be the same size as the bottom of the container

Note: You can cut your container down to a size that you like but make sure you cut it down by inches. Also this will affect how many rows you will crochet.



Directions:

Outer layer

Round 1: With Color1, ch 4, make 9 dc in the 4th ch (the rest of the chs form the first dc) from hook, sl st into beg dc for a total of 10 dc.

Round 2: Ch 3 (counts as first dc here and throughout), dc in the same st, {make 2 dc in the next dc.} Repeat from *{to} 8 more times, sl st into beg st. (20dc)

Round 3: Ch 3, {make 2 dc in the next st, 1 dc in the next st.} Repeat from {to} 8 times, make 2 dc in last st, sl st in beg st. (30dc)

Round 4: Ch 1, sc in the same st, sc in the next st, make 2 sc in the next st. {Sc in the next 2 sts, make 2 sc in the next st}. Repeat from {to} 8 times, sl st into beg sc. (40 sc)

Round 5: Working in back loops only, ch 3. Dc in each st around, sl st into beg dc. (40 dc)

Rounds 6-17 (or till you reach the top of the container): Ch 3; dc in each st around, sl st into beg dc. (40 dc) At the end of your last row, finish off.

Inner layer

With Color 2, repeat Rnds 1-17 of Outer Layer (do not finish off). Insert the inner layer into the container and slip the outer layer over the container. Match up your edges, and crochet the two layers together in the next row.

Round 18: Ch 1, sc in the same st. Sc in each st around, sl st into beg sc. (40 sc)

Round 19: Ch 1, sc in the same st, sc in the next st. Sk 2 sc, ch 4. {Sc in the next 2 sc, sk 2 sc, ch 4}. Repeat from {to} 8 times, sl st into beg sc. (20 sc and 10 ch-sp)

Round 20: Sl st into the next sc and into the ch-sp, ch 1. {(Sc, hdc, dc, hdc, sc) into the ch-sp}. Repeat from {to} 9 times, sl st into beg sc. (10 petals)

Round 21: Sl st into the next 2 sts, ch 1. {Sc in the dc, ch 4}. Repeat from  {to} 9 times, sl st into the beg sc. (10 ch-sp)

Round 22: Sl st into the ch-sp, ch 1. {(Sc, hdc, dc, ch 3, sl st into dc (picot made), hdc, sc) into the ch-sp}. Repeat from {to} 9 times, sl st into beg sc. (10 petals with picots) Finish off and weave in your ends, fold edge down over outside of container.
