The Harvest Table Crochet Dishcloth is the perfect project for fall. Whip up set to give as a hostess/host gift at your next holiday party!
Happy Thursday! Today I am sharing a fun new pattern, the Harvest Table Crochet Dishcloth. This project is great because it works up very quickly and looks super chic! I designed this dishcloth with fall festivities in mind.
You could totally whip up a few of these in an afternoon and have a whole set before you know it, thus these make for perfect last minute gifts!
This project uses 100% cotton yarn, which in my opinion is the only yarn that can be used for crochet (or knitted) dishcloths/washcloths. It’s durable and has the ability to soak up water. There’s really no other yarn that can do the trick – trust me!
I used two brands of cotton yarn for this project, not for any reason other than that’s what I had on hand!
The body portion of the Harvest Table Crochet Dishcloth uses up an entire 2 oz ball of Peaches & Creme, while the border uses a small amount of Lily Sugar’n Cream but you could totally make your dishcloth using only one brand or the other. All you need are two 2 oz balls!
The stitch used in this project is corner-to-corner moss stitch. Moss stitch is one of my favorite stitches because its so versatile and also reversible! I recently designed another dishcloth using moss stitch as well (that pattern can be found here in case you missed it).
C2C moss stitch is extra fun because as the name implies, you work your project from corner to corner, making the grain of your stitches appear diagonal! C2C moss stitch is a super easy once you get the technique down and I show you exactly how to do it in the video tutorial below!
The Harvest Table Crochet Dishcloth tutorial is beginner friendly but assumes you already know how to complete the following skills.
