Crochet Even Moss Stitch Dishcloth

Even Moss Stitch is crochet beginner friendly stitch and all you need to know is how to crochet slip stitch and half double crochet.


I love this stitch for a dishcloth because of the texture and it's also pretty sturdy so it will last really long. I also added a loop on one corner so you can hang it to let it dry or just keep it at one place to get a nice home décor touch.


You can also use it as a washcloth. I use 100% cotton yarn so it's also great for hot pots and it keeps its shape without stretching. Of course, you can use any other yarn but I highly recommend the cotton one.


If you are a crochet beginner or you just simply rather video tutorials, feel free to check my YouTube video for this pattern where I explain this stitch step by step.






What do you need for this pattern:

  • 5mm hook

  • Cotton Yarn - I use Bernat Handicraft 100% cotton. If you decide for any other yarn, please read the label for recommended hook size:)

  • Scissors, Yarn Needle


Abbreviations and Symbols:

Ch - Chain

Sl St - Slip Stitch

HDC - Half Double Crochet

SC - Single Crochet

Notes:

  • if you'd like your dishcloth bigger or smaller, always make odd number of foundation chain

  • ch 1 at the end of the rows doesn't count as a first stitch, it's only a turning ch

  • you always start the row with sl st and end the row with hdc

  • if you follow my pattern, you'll get around 8" square dish/wash cloth



Directions:

Ch 31

Row 1 - SL ST into the second ch from the hook, HDC into the next stitch, *SL ST, HDC*, repeat from * to * until the end of the row. Your last stitch is HDC. CH 1, turn.

Row 2 - SL ST into the first stitch, HDC into the next stitch, *SL ST, HDC*, repeat from * to * until the end of the row. Your last stitch is HDC. CH 1, turn.

Row 3 - Row 30 - repeat Row 2




Border with the loop

  1. If you'd like to have a border with different colour than your dishcloth, cast it off after you make your last HDC. Join your new yarn into your last HDC and ch 10. Continue with #3.

  2. If you'd like to have a border with the same colour as the dishcloth, after your last HDC of your last row of the dishcloth, ch 10,

  3. SL ST into your last HDC (now you created a loop). Then you make SC in every stitch around the dishcloth. In each corner you make 3SC.

  4. Once you reach your loop, you also make SC in every chain of your loop. SL ST into the first SC made for the border. Cast it off. Weave in the tails and your dishcloth is done. :)



Border without the loop:

  1. If you'd like to have a border with different colour than your dishcloth, cast it off after you make your last HDC. Join your new yarn into your last HDC and make 3SC. Continue with #3.

  2. If you'd like to have a border with the same colour as the dishcloth, after your last HDC of your last row of the dishcloth, make 2SC in the same stitch as your last HDC.

  3. Then you make SC in every stitch around the dishcloth. In each corner you make 3SC.

  4. Once you reach your beginning of the border, SL ST, cast it off and weave in your tails and your dishcloth is done. :)
