Dotty Dishcloth Crochet Pattern

Dotty Dishcloth crochet pattern by The Turtle Trunk

Introducing the Dotty Dishcloth!

I’ve been wanting to design another dishcloth for a while now. I love crochet cloths for both myself & home and also to give as gifts! My Farmhouse Dishcloth pattern is one of my most popular patterns on Etsy, so I figured you all probably like crochet dishcloths too! I’ve been using this bumpy stitch called the Picot Single Crochet in a lot of my patterns lately, because it’s just too PRETTY! I can’t get over the amazing look and feel it gives the fabric and I just knew it would work great for a dishcloth.

Check out the Dotty Dishtowel & Hanging Towel to make the whole Dotty Dish Set!

This pattern uses the Picot Single Crochet and the Granule Stitch to create the beautiful, bumpy texture! Check out the written instructions & video tutorial to learn these stitches!

Let’s grab our supplies & let’s get making!
