Textured Easy to Knit Dishcloth Pattern – FREE Knitting Pattern

Textured Easy to Knit Dishcloth Pattern - FREE Knitting Pattern

If you have ever made one of my dishcloths in the past, it really bothers me when one side of a dishcloth doesn’t look the same way on the reverse side. To me, a dishcloth should be reversible. I know, it’s weird and really isn’t that important, but we all have these random, arbitrary rules we like to follow. Well, this one hits that same-both-side requirement! Yay! My mildly OCD brain is happy.

There’s not a whole lot to say about this one. If you make it 50 stitches wide, you’ll end up making a dishcloth that is approximately 9 inches (23 cm) square. Here are links if you’re interested in making any of my other dishcloths. I have a number of them now… Diamonds Dishcloth, Cute AF Bows Dishcloth, Bars and Stripes Dishcloth, Knit a Simple Dishcloth, and Knitting for Beginners Dishcloth.

As always, if you would prefer a printable paper version of this pattern, you can purchase and download the PDF from all of my usual sites. You can make a purchase from this website here – Textured Knitted Dishcloth Pattern. You can also purchase a download from my other online retailers which are LoveCraftsEtsy and Ravelry. If the link isn’t working I haven’t upload the pattern to the site yet.

Gauge doesn’t really matter for this. It’s a dishcloth. The smaller the needle the tighter the knit. If it’s a bit looser of a knit, it’ll still work.

Continue to cast off until there are 2 stitches on your non-working needle. K2tog these 2 stitches. You now have 2 stitches on your working needle. Pass the stitch over the the K2tog loop (the loop on the right over the loop on the left, if you are right handed). 

Work in the ends.

Hints and Tips

This pattern can easily be made into a scarf of any width with pointed ends you could attach tassels to. If you want to make this super long, repeat the rows in the middle (the rows not designated with the repeat symbols or where you are not increasing or decreasing). It’s always 4 rows for one repeat of the pattern.

Make this as wide or as narrow as you like. If you feel 50 stitches are too wide, or not wide enough, do what you wish. Just always end on the second row of the knitting across rows to maintain the pattern texture.

If you want a more finished edge, you can easily do a single crochet around the edge of the dishcloth. The lighter beige dishcloth has the single crocheted edge if you’d like to see an example. I found that 2 stitches at each of the corners maintained a spaced out edging that lays flat.


K – knit

P – purl

Increase in the first stitch – knit in the front and back of the stitch.

K2tog – knit 2 together
