I am so excited to be sharing my Farmhouse Dish Set crochet pattern with you all today! This is by far my favorite dishcloth pattern EVER! I designed and published this pattern a few years ago and it has since been a paid only pattern in my Etsy shop and on Ravelry. This has been one of my best sellers both online and in person. I make these crochet dish cloths and towels for Christmas, wedding and house warming gifts every year, plus I have a bunch for my own home and have sold so many sets!

What I love most about the Farmhouse Dish Set pattern is the amazing texture, which is not only eye catching but it’s actually great for scrubbing too! The unique ridgid texture is created by working the even moss stitch, that is made up of just 2 basic crochet stitches! This pattern is beginner friendly and is a great mindless project you can work on while watching your favorite TV show. You can also adjust any of the cloths and towels to be any size you’d like! The pattern includes instructions for a dishcloth, dish towel, and hanging towel, but you can use these are face cloths, wash cloths, or hand towels in the bathroom too!

Inspiration

I was inspired to design the Farmhouse Dish Set when I was searching for a good crochet dish cloth pattern that was easy to make but not boring. I think crochet dish/wash cloths are a classic, handmade gift and instead of the flat, one stitch texture a lot of them are, I wanted to take it up a notch with something a bit more fun! When I learned the even moss stitch, I instantly knew this would be the perfect stitch for a dish cloth! It’s rigid texture is not only beautiful to look at, but it’s also great for scrubbing and cleaning!

My original design only included one crochet dish cloth but I decided to make the dish towel and hanging towel as well so that you could give this set as a complete gift instead of just part of a gift. I love giving the Farmhouse Dish Set as a wedding and house warming gift because it’s beautiful and practical for any home. If you want to add more to the set be sure to check out the Farmhouse Pot Holder and Farmhouse Coaster which feature the same amazing texture!

Wrap it up!

If you’re selling your cloths and towels in markets or online or even just giving them as gifts, then topping them with a nice label instantly make them look more professional! It also helps the recipient know exactly what they’re getting and tells them how to care for their item! I have 2 sets of these printable wrap labels available in my Etsy shop for you to use for either personal use or to add to your sets to sell: Dish Set Wrap Labels and Bath Set Wrap Labels! These are printable templates that you simple download, print at home, and then use! I wrap it around a nicely folded cloth then use a little double sided tape to close them up! So easy! Each printable set includes 4 pages of labels and cut lines so you can easily cut and use which ever label best suits you!

Yarn

My favorite type of yarn for crochet cloths and towel is cotton yarn because it’s durable, absorbs water, and can be machine washed and dried! For my Farmhouse Dish Set I used Hobby Lobby’s I Love This Cotton in the colors Pewter, Dove, and Antique Gold. I Love This Cotton is a medium (4) weight cotton and my favorite cotton yarn, but some other cotton yarns you could use are Lily Sugar n’ Cream, Circulo Natural Cotton Maxcolor, and Dishie.

Sizes

The Farmhouse Dish Set includes instructions for a 8.5″ x 8.5″ cloth, 13″ x 21″ towel, and 8.5″ x 19″ hanging towel, but you can adjust the sizes to be any length and width you like! To adjust the width, chain any even number and then to adjust the length, work as many rows to get your desired length.

Difficulty

Easy

Gauge

14 STs x 17 Rows = 4” x 4” in Even Moss Stitch (SL ST in 1st ST, then HDC in next)
Adjust hook size up or down to meet gauge

Notes

  • These patterns use the Even Moss Stitch, so you will work a SL ST into the first ST, then a HDC in the next, then SL ST into the next. Repeat until the end of the row. Then for the next row you will repeat the same pattern, working the SL ST into the previous SL ST and the HDC into the previous HDC.
  • Work SL STs loosely especially the first and last one of each row to ensure your piece doesn’t cinch at the ends.
  • To adjust the width, chain any even number and then to adjust the length, work as many rows to get your desired length.
  • Beginning chains do not count as stitches throughout the whole pattern, so work your first stitch of the row into the same stitch your beginning chain is in.
  • The number in parenthesis at the end of each round represents the total number of stitches to be worked in that row.
  • Repeat instructions between asterisks (*) until the end of each row.
