What kind of yarn is best for dishcloths?

Your crochet dishcloth should be durable and washable. 100% cotton yarn is best for making crochet dishcloths. Cotton yarn is absorbent and will hold the water. It also won’t break apart when the bottom of the dirty pot needs some heavy duty scrubbing!

There are lots of cotton blends of yarn out there such an a cotton-acrylic blend. But the moment you add that softness that comes from acrylic yarn, the cotton loses it’s heavy-duty feature. Therefore, I recommend sticking with 100% cotton yarn for dishcloths and avoiding any type of mixture or blended yarn.

With all that being said, there may be some patterns listed below that recommend a different type of yarn and by all means, try it out and see which one works best for your crochet dishcloth.

For a crochet dishcloth, I recommend a size 4 (medium) weight yarn. This will ensure your yarn is strong enough to help you wash those dishes. I’ve used Bernat Handicrafter Cotton Yarn, which size 4 (medium) and is 100% cotton. It’s also washable and dryable, a must in my opinion for a dishcloth!

What crochet stitch is best for dishcloths?

The best part of making crochet dishcloths is that there are so many different stitches that make amazing crochet dishcloths. You can make a simple crochet dishcloth with double crochet stitches like in this Double Crochet Dishcloth Pattern. Or you can alternate stitches such as this Round Dishcloth Pattern that alternates between single and double crochet for a lovely textured look.
