I’ve been on a bit of a dishcloth kick lately and today I have a new one to share, the Crochet Cabin Dishcloth!  These cloths remind me of something you would find in a camp or cabin and folded over the kitchen sink, thus the name.

Made with 100% cotton yarn these cloths are super flexible and absorbent, perfect for tackling the worst kitchen messes!  And the combination of stitches makes a complicated looking texture but it’s really quite easy, and they work up pretty fast.

Chain 21

Row 1: Starting in 2nd crochet from hook, sc in each chain to the end of the row; turn

Making the Border

**You will now be working in rounds around the outer edge of the dishcloth.**

Round 1: Starting in last stitch of the previous row (the stitch you are in now), make 2 sc in that same stitch.  You should now have 3 sc in the same stitch.  This is creating your first corner.

Make 18 sc evenly along the side of your piece, once you reach the 1st stitch of the bottom edge, make 3 sc in this stitch.  You have now made corner number 2.

Sc in each stitch along the bottom edge, and make 3 sc in the last stitch of the bottom edge, making corner number 3.

Make 18 sc evenly along the second side of your piece.  Once you reach around to the top edge, make 2 sc in this same stitch for a total of 3 stitches in your 4th corner.  Join using a slip stitch with the first stitch or row 22.

Round 2: Ch 2, starting in the same stitch as your ch 2, hdc, and hdc in each stitch across the row and make 3 hdc in the center corner stitch.  Repeat this process for all four sides and corners.  Join with the 1st stitch of the round using slip stitch.

Cut yarn and weave in all ends.  Enjoy!

  1. Do you have any video tutorials for making the dishcloths. I seem to do better with a video to watch.

  2. Thanks for such a cute pattern! Would you be able to tell me what multiple to use in order to increase the size, please? Thanks again! 🙂

  3. I’m not sure why you wrap the yarn for your chain 2 instead of letting the needle grab the yarn? That’s the way I always do it. I never use my left hand to wrap yarn, let the needle on the right hand do it for you.

    1. It’s what I find to be the most comfortable way to control the tension in my chain to ensure it’s even and all chains are consistent – for me personally. I also think it’s a great visual way to help those who are learning to crochet grasp the concept of what is happening with the hook and yarn. Once learners have grasped the concept of how to crochet as a base they can add fancy techniques like continental crochet. I just never felt the need to switch my technique. There’s definitely no right or wrong here, just different ways of doing it. To each her own!
