Diagonal dishcloth crochet pattern

Diagonal dishcloth crochet pattern DEFAULT

This week I made dishcloths for my SYTYC entry for "In the Kitchen". I was really worried that dishcloths would be a little too boring but they did really well. I didn't win the week but I came in second, one vote behind the first place winner. I knew that crocheted dishcloths have always done well on blog I just wasn't sure if people would vote for them in a competition but I guess they did. That was pretty exciting to see.



When I made these dishcloths I played around with several different stitch ideas, some one color, some multicolor. I knew I wanted something with lots of texture. I crocheted little swatches of several different patterns and then I made my husband choose his favorite. I was glad he chose this one because this stitch was probably my favorite and I loved the way these dishcloths turned out. They have tons of texture and kind of a woven look to them. I wanted to make them in fall colors and these were the closest I could find, they kind of remind me more of desert colors but I still thought they looked nice, kind of different from colors I would normally choose.


I would definitely say this is a little more advanced dishcloth pattern due to the use of post stitches. It isn't hard necessarily, especially once you get the pattern down, but definitely more complicated than a pattern that just uses normal sc, hdc, and/or dc. Also, just a little note about the pattern- because the post stitches are a little shorter than normal dc I started with a ch 2 at the beginning of each row rather than the normal ch 3, if you feel that is to tight you could switch to a ch 3 I just thought it was giving me too loose of a stitch on the ends.

How to Crochet an Easy Textured Dishcloth

Whether you are a beginner or well-versed crocheter, these textured dishcloths are so easy to make! Whip up a few or a few dozen! I think these will be your next favorite dishcloth because they are definitely mine!

crochet dishcloth with diagonal textures

I don’t know about you, but I love a good textured dishcloth. I made up these dishcloths in a snap with my leftover cotton yarns and they came out fantastic! If you know how to single crochet, you’ll have no problem making these easy peasy dishcloths too.

In the past years, I’ve made several dishcloths and washcloths for my home. I never tend to stick with one stitch for making them, because dishcloths are a great way to learn new stitches and patterns!

Dishcloths with Texture

Although I don’t always use the same pattern, I can tell you that I always love incorporating pretty textures into my dishcloths. You can find three other patterns I’ve used that have interesting textures here.

These dishcloths I recently made with some cotton yarns have a beautiful diagonal texture. I absolutely love how they look! Double up the yarn and they would make wonderful hot pads for the kitchen too!

crochet tip - get even rows

The secret to the pretty textures is working into the back loop of the stitches. I’ve done this many years before but instead of working diagonally, I worked in rows. It wasn’t the best idea.

By doing that, it still offered me a pretty texture but I quickly realized it wanted to scrunch up like an accordion – especially after throwing it in the washing machine!

Working diagonally versus in long rows helps the shape of the dishcloth stay in a square rather than scrunching up in a rectangular shape. Honestly, I love it even more now that the rows are diagonal! It adds a whole other dimension.

Cotton Yarns to Try

When I began to crochet dishcloths, I would exclusively use Lily Sugar and Cream. It’s readily available in most craft stores and they’re a good price. However, I’ve used a handful of cotton yarns since and I want to share with you my favorites for dishcloths!

The first one is I Love this Yarn! that you can find in Hobby Lobby stores. (Be sure to grab some when they have 30% off all yarns – they have this sale pretty often!)
It’s a bit of a thinner cotton yarn (although it is categorized as a medium 4) and it is so soft! I love using it for washcloths and I even made my Talulah Top out of it! Since it’s so soft, I especially love using it to make washcloths for the bath.
Added bonus: the variety of colors they have to offer is amazing!

My second favorite is Dishie Yarn from Knit Picks. As far as I know, this one is sold exclusively online. I did a review on this yarn that you can read here.
To sum it all up, it’s not as rough as Lily’s Sugar and Cream, but it still has the great raw cotton feel to it. I love working with it and it holds up so well for dishcloths.
Another thing I really love about it is the rich colors I used did not fade even after several washes. Dishie Yarn also has a great array of colors to choose from and at a good price.

You guys remember when I was obsessed with chunky yarn? Welp, it is now summer and hot AF in the San Fernando Valley. We’re talking low 100’s and there is no room for chunky yarns what so ever. So I have made the switch to cotton yarn like Lily Sugar n’ Cream. I’m a bit in love with their fun ombre colors and the fact that they’re so versatile.

Diagonal Crochet Dishcloth Pattern

Key:
ch: Chain stitch
sl: slip stitch
sc: single crochet
inc: increase
sc2tog: Single crochet 2 together

This project is worked in BACK LOOPS ONLY so just be prepared for that. If you’re unsure of what that means, it is putting your needle through only one loop of your stitch instead of the usual two. You’re going to stitch into the back loop (the one furthest from your face.)

Start by creating a slip knot at the end of your yarn and ch 4. Turn

Row 1: In the second stitch from the end, SC. Keep SC for a total of 3 stitches. Ch 1

Row 2: SC 2 stitches into the back loop of the first stitch. (this is an increase) SC into the back loop of next stitch then inc into the back loop of the final stitch. 5 stitches total

Row 3: SC 2 in back loop of 1st stitch. SC in back loops across until last stitch. SC 2 in back loop of last stitch. Ch 1. 7 stitches total

Row 4-24: Repeat row 3 until you have a total of 48 stitches across.

Row 25: SC2Tog in first stitch, sc in BACK LOOPS accross. sc2tog in final two stitches. Ch 1. 47 st total.

To SC2Tog: (I write this because it took me 3 times to figure out exactly what I was doing when I first learned what that meant)

Pull up a loop in the BACK LOOPS of the first two SC. To do this, you’re going to go in like you’re making a sc but instead of looping that yarn around again and pulling it through, you’re going to leave the loop on the hook. After you’ve pulled up both loops, you’re going to hook the yarn through and slip stitch through all three loops on your needle.

Row 26-46: Repeat row 25 until you have 3 stitches left.
To finish: SC3tog. Pull up loops for the last 3 stitches and crochet together. Cut the yarn and pull it through to finish off your diagonal crochet dishcloth.

Use the tapestry or yarn needle to weave in your ends. If it’s not as square as you’d like it, you can “Block it” by getting it wet and stretching it into shape as it dries. Voila! Now go wash some dishes… or not. Just make your kitchen look cute okay?

10 Easy Dishcloth Free Crochet Patterns

Are you looking for a quick and relaxing crochet project?

Let’s talk about crocheted dishcloths!

We’ll cover everything you need to know about making this fun DIY project including lots of easy crochet patterns!

Crocheted dishcloths are simple squares that pack a punch of cleaning power in your kitchen.

What is the best crochet stitch for a dishcloth?

Due to the highly textured natured of crochet stitches, any stitch you choose will make a fabulous dishcloth!

That includes basic stitches such as single crochet, half, double crochet, and double crochet.

Some of my personal favorite stitches for dishcloths are the waffle stitch (see project #1, below) as well as highly textured stitches (see project #8 and 10, below).

Do crochet dishcloths work well?

Crocheted dishcloths are a must-have tool for your kitchen! They make cleaning up a breeze and are an excellent reusable substitute for paper towels.

In addition, you can also say good-bye to kitchen sponges when you replace them with crocheted dishcloths.

The slubbed quality of natural cotton combined with the texture of crocheted fabric makes crocheted dishcloths scrubby and ideal for washing dishes, cleaning pots and pan, as well as gentle enough for wine glasses and heirloom china.

Pro Tip: Keep a stack of crocheted dishcloths on hand so that you can toss the old one in the wash every couple days and have a fresh one ready to go.

What is the best yarn for dishcloths?

When buying yarn for dishcloths, choose a 100% cotton is the best yarn for dishcloths and washcloths. A worsted/aran weight cotton CYC #4 works well for this type of project because it’s not too thin or not too thick.

Since cotton yarn is machine washable, it’s easy care which is my favorite reason for choosing cotton.

In addition, cotton is absorbent and has lots of natural texture. Both of these properties make them ideal for dishcloths.

Here are the BEST cotton yarns for dishcloths and they can be used in ANY of the dishcloth patterns shown in this post.
