Springtime is around the corner—we promise! Crocuses will be popping, birds will be nesting, and our thoughts will turn to refreshing our homes—with crochet, of course. Quick crochet patterns like dishcloths and towels can help you with spring cleaning and organizing: whipping up a few of these beauties can whittle down your yarn stash in no time and they’re so useful. Even if you crochet dishcloth patterns simply for display, the pretty stitches and juicy yarn colors will infuse your home with springtime energy and warmth.
Here at I Like Crochet, we’re as impatient for spring as you are, and we’ve got five wonderful crochet patterns to help you freshen your home, starting with one that does double duty, the Mosaic Crochet Towel Toppers and Dishcloth Set.
This reversible crochet pattern is two for the price of fun!
Sure, it looks intricate, but this two-piece pattern is actually quite easy to make. The dishcloth’s reversible design is created by working the long-dropped double crochets around the post of the stitch instead of working into the stitch. Make a second towel topper and dishcloth by working into the front posts instead of through both loops, and before you know it, you’ll have the perfect kitchen set!
The yarn quantities provided will make two towel toppers for a 15” x 25” kitchen towel and two dishcloths, one in Pattern A and the other in Pattern B. Set B is worked the same pattern as Set A, except that you substitute front post double crochets for the long double crochets. This creates a reversible design: one side has a textured look and the other side has stripes. Attach the towel to the topper using a tapestry needle and our instructions for the blanket stitch, and you’re done.
Take your yarn color inspiration from the kitchen towel you choose, or match a towel to existing cotton yarns from your stash. Either way, this set will brighten up your kitchen and it’s oh-so useful. If you can bear to part with it, give the Mosaic Crochet Towel Toppers and Dishcloth Set as a housewarming or wedding shower gift. The pattern is so quick and easy to make, you’ll want to hook more than one set.
As fun and pretty as this pattern is, we have a lot more dishcloth patterns for you to make as you wait for spring to arrive.
We’ve got crochet designs that are as fresh as spring!
How cheerful is The Strawberry Mango Towel? This sunny project will sweep you away to an exotic locale (in your daydreams, anyway) as you work it with a double-ended hook. It’s similar to Tunisian Crochet, except with the double-ended hook you will turn each time your hook is fully loaded with stitches. Finish the edging with a standard hook, and you’re ready to hang up this room-brightening towel. But which side will you display: the one that reveals more strawberry color or the mango side? It’s up to you!
Can’t get enough of that scrumptious fruit combo? Then make the Strawberry Mango Dishcloth, too! Another easy pattern worked with a double-ended hook, this dishcloth does double duty. One side reveals a scrubby yarn, while the other side features soft cotton for when a gentle wipe is all that is needed. The horizontal stitches are created when you work the loops off the hook in previous row; they resemble a series of chains connecting the vertical bars. You’ll love the final effect that looks pretty and makes cleaning a breeze.
Spring brings new beginnings, so start one of these crochet projects!
You don’t have to cry over spilled milk or a sink full of the dishes. Not when your cloth is as fun to make and use as the Diagonal Pop Dishcloth. That pop of color puts some zing into your cleanup routine. But just because this dishcloth is cute doesn’t mean it isn’t tough—oh no. Working the pattern in the round makes a practical double thickness that holds up well to many dishwashing sessions. Plus, the added texture helps to scrub away grime and dirt. Top-stitched onto the base, the diagonal stripes put the fun in functional!
