Farmhouse Dishcloth Set

Free crochet dishcloth pattern! My farmhouse dishcloth set is a perfect quick pattern for gifts, markets, or for yourself! You just need aran weight (4) cotton yarn and your crochet hook to make this adorable set. You can read about the design process or scroll down for the free pattern!

If you haven’t noticed, I am obsessed with all things farmhouse, grey, and buffalo plaid! I released my farmhouse coasters (to see the free pattern for those, click here) and I have since been obsessed with the texture and design and needed a matching dishcloth set!

For durability I always like to use cotton since these will be getting a lot of wear and tear washing dishes and wiping down counters. I like the aran (weight 4) so it’s a little thicker than the dk I used for the coasters. My favorite is paintbox cotton aran from lovecrafts, to get the yarn click here. You can use almost any weight 4 cotton, since the size isn’t crucial for this project! Mine ended up being an 8.5″ square, but if they are a little bigger or smaller it shouldn’t make a huge difference!

Changing colors can be a little tricky for the buffalo plaid, but if you feel comfortable with crocheting single crochet stitches this might be the perfect time to start! The Granite Dishcloths (solid colors) are made from using single crochet and chains, so they are perfect for a beginner!

You can make plaid with almost any complimenting colors, for color A pick out a color that is in between color B and C. I used a light grey to tie in the dark grey and white together. I am in love with the result, and I hope you love them too!

Buffalo Plaid Dishcloth

Materials:

  • Cotton Aran (4) in three complimentary colors. I used Paintbox yarns cotton aran.
    • Color A: stormy grey (50yds)
    • Color B: paper white (24yds)
    • Color C: slate grey (20yds)
  • I hook
  • Sharp scissors
  • Tapestry needle

Stitches/Abbreviations:

  • Sc- single crochet
  • Ch- chain
  • St- stitch
  • ss- slip stitch

Notes:

  • We will be carrying over the yarn that isn’t being used by crocheting over it with the other color. To switch colors, insert hook into next st, pull up a loop, grab a loop of the next color and pull through 2 loops on hook.
  • When changing colors at the end of the row, I flip the work in the opposite direction so I can tuck the other color underneath better.
  • Color B and C can be traded for this pattern and it still looks great!
  • When changing colors, you can gently pull on the tails of the yarn to keep stitches snug and threads hidden.
  • () at the end of the row indicate how many stitches should be in the row. There are no decreases or increases in this project.

Gauge:

Gauge isn’t crucial for this project; your dishcloth should be approx. 8.5” x 8.5”

Level:

Intermediate. This project can be a little tricky with the color changes, but the stitches are beginner friendly if you are feeling confident!

Let’s get started!

Starting with color A, ch 31.

Row 1: Skip the first ch, and sc across, ch 1, turn. (30)

Row 2: Sc in the next 6 st but before finishing the last sc start color B, sc 6 st of color B, change and then sc 6 of color A, change and then sc 6 of color B, change and  then sc 6 of color A, ch 1, turn. (30)

Rows 3-4: Repeat Row 2.

Row 5: Sc 6 with color A, sc 6 of color B, sc 6 of color A, sc 6 of color B, sc 6 of color A but change to color C at the end of the row, ch 1, turn.

Row 6: Sc 6 in color C, change to color A then sc 6, sc 6 of color C, Sc 6 of color A, sc 6 of color C, ch 1, turn.

Row 7-8: Repeat Row 6.

Row 9: Sc 6 in color C, change to color A then sc 6, sc 6 of color C, sc 6 of color A, sc 6 of color C but change to color A at the end of the row, ch 1, turn.

Row 10-13: Repeat Rows 2-5

Rows 14-17: Repeat Rows 6-9

Row 22: Sc across the row with color A. Do not tie off and continue onto the border.

Border

Sc in same stitch and evenly sc around the outside of the coaster, putting 2 sc in the corners. After you get all the way around, ss into the first sc and tie off. Hide all threads.

Optional:

Gently block your coaster to help it from curling. Enjoy!

Granite Dishcloth

  1. Sc- single crochet
  2. Ch- chain
