Woodland Cottage Crochet Dishcloth Pattern

The Woodland Cottage Crochet Dishcloth Pattern makes for a great beginner project.  Consisting of only half double crochets and a single crochet border this dishcloth features a beautiful ribbed texture and would be a wonderful addition to any kitchen!

Hello and welcome back to the blog!  Today I am sharing a new pattern with you – the Woodland Cottage Crochet Dishcloth.  I love making dishcloths because they are super easy and fairly quick to make.

For this project I tried a new yarn, Peaches n’Cream.  It is very affordable and can be found at Walmart (I think that might be the only store I have seen it sold), and I have to say I absolutely loved it!!

The dishcloth pictured in cream was made with my “tried and true” Lily Sugar n’Cream and the brown was made with Peaches n’Cream.  A few of my favorite patterns using cotton yarn can be found here, here, and here.

I have to say that the brown dishcloth (Peaches n’Cream) came out SUPER soft with a beautiful loose drape and the cream colored dishcloth (Sugar n’Cream) came out a bit scratchy and more stiff/rigid.  For my first time using Peaches n’Cream I have to say that I am super impressed.  While I still love Sugar, I will definitely be reaching for Peaches more often!

    1. Thank you so much! This dishcloth is a little larger than my typical size. You might be able to get two out of a 4oz skein, but it might be a stretch!

    1. Hi Huguette! Yes, the cotton yarn is washable. The care instructions for the yarn should be included on the label.

      I typically just wash these along with my other kitchen dishcloths and tumble try as usual.

  1. Hi Brittany, I just made the Woodland Cabin Cotton Dishcloth! It’s actually the first project I ever did reading the pattern without watching a video tutorial…and I did it…super easy. I love it. Going to make more – just as soon as I buy some more cotton yarn. Do you think Mercerized cotton is good for potholders and dishcloths? I’ve never tried that cotton before…I hear some like it – some do not. What do you think of it and if you like it, which brand would you suggest? Thanks so much. 🙂

    1. Hi Faith! That’s wonderful! I’m so glad you enjoyed the pattern!! Mercerized cotton is a pretty fine fiber and is typically used for more delicate pieces like a doily – just because it is thin (but it’s strong!). Though I haven’t tried it, you could probably use it for a dishcloth but might need a little “beefed” up by crocheting 2 strands of it together at the same time.

      In my opinion, it might be a little too thin and airy for a potholder. I actually have a hard time finding mercerized cotton in my area, but will need some for an upcoming project! I have tried Hobby Lobby’s Sinfonia for a shawl and I love it! I know Lion Brand also has one. It is not carried near me but I know it can be found online.

      I hope this helps! Happy crocheting! 🙂

  2. Thanks for your quick reply Brittany. I am going shopping on Sunday or Monday .. I’m hoping Walmart carries the cotton scrubby yarn. As for the mercerized cotton, I guess I will wait on that until I find a suitable project for it. Thanks for your input.. much appreciated. ?

  3. I love this pattern! I was looking for the yardage of this project and didn’t see it in the blog post. But if anyone is wondering, I estimated that it’s about 70 yards of yarn. I used a 150 yard skien of Sugar ‘n Cream yarn and got 2 dish cloths out of it, with about 10 yards left over. Thanks for the pattern!
