Until I started this series I never knew there were so many different ways to crochet a dishcloth! I guess it’s because a small scale project like this is a such a great way to learn a new stitch.

So today let’s take a look at some crochet waffle stitch dishcloth patterns. The texture created by the waffle stitch gives these dish rags extra scrubbing power, and they feel nice and thick too, but still dry out nicely.

Don’t forget to only use cotton yarn though as wool and water don’t play nicely together!
