Tips for Crocheting Textured Crochet Dishcloth Patterns
A typical dishcloth will be around 7-9″ square. This is a good size for holding in your hand and washing but not so large that it gets in the way.
You will usually always find that dishcloths have a border as well. This will help the dishcloth hold its shape and gives it more stability. In a lot of patterns it will be simple single crochet, but it can be much fancier.
In most cases you will want a dishcloth that does not have a lot of holes in it. This type of dishcloth won’t hold its shape well, so look for patterns that have their stitches spaced closer together. A little space is fine but this is not the time for crochet lace.
What Are the Best Yarns for Textured Crochet Dishcloths?
The best yarns for dishcloths or washcloths is going to be a good, durable cotton yarn. These yarns will wash well and hold up in really hot water (which, depending upon how you use them you might need to use!).
You want your dishcloths to keep their shape and a sturdy cotton yarn will fit the bill. I know people who use acrylic yarns for their dishcloths since it also washes well, so if you want to give it a try you can test it out and see how you like it!
You will see yarns like Lily Sugar ‘n Cream used a lot because these yarns are so durable, are made from strong cotton, and are very affordable.
