Waffle Stitch Dishcloth Crochet Pattern

Crochet pattern for a smart, modern dishcloth with a thick, robust 'waffle' stitch finish.

Includes neat edging and optional hanging loop (often missing from other patterns).

Ideal beginner pattern, fully illustrated with colour photos and containing lots of tips and advice. Also comes with my full e-mail support if you have any questions at all.

Available in both UK and US crochet terminology - two entirely separate patterns, for maximum readability, just choose whichever you prefer to use.

For one dishcloth you will need around 88m (96yds) of aran/worsted weight (Category 4) yarn - 100% cotton works great for this pattern.

Bonus: the pattern includes details of how to use the same pattern to make a waffle stitch scarf!

The pattern also includes a succinct, 1-page, unillustrated version of the pattern written in traditional crochet notation, for ease of printing.

Little Conkers

Little Conkers exists to help you get the most from your time and pennies - whether you're making something for yourself or as a gift - as a way of spreading the joy of creativity.

I know that, for many people, creativity is often fitted into the slivers of time that you can find between all the other "must dos" in your life. But you know that making something yourself means it can be exactly what you need, look exactly how you want and can give you untold pleasure day after day.

My sewing and crochet patterns are specifically designed with the time-strapped and frugal in mind, requiring no superfluous equipment and including practical suggestions on how to up-cycle materials wherever possible.

I am a real person, and always love to hear from my customers all around the world. All my patterns come with my full e-mail support, so do feel free to ask any questions you may have. Enjoy your creating!
