Cloudy Days Crochet Dishcloth Pattern

Sharing is caring!

The Cloudy Days Dishcloth uses the adorable Tiny Cloud Stitch to create a wonderfully textured washcloth/dishcloth that you can use over and over again around the house.

You only need to know the half double crochet and single crochet stitches to create this pattern, which makes it a great option for those who are newer to crochet but looking to expand their skills by trying out some special stitch combinations.

  1. Thank you sooooo much for sharing your pattern.
    I love the look of the cloud stitch.
    Unfortunately I’m never sure, until I make awkward mistakes, on the second row and subsequent rows, are we placing the 2 HDC in the SC beneath, then skipping a stitch, SC in the second HDC?
    So always 2HDC in the SC? And away we go?
    TIA for your thoughts.

      1. Thank you! I can read a pattern, but for me it’s always an issue of what the designer thinks the first stitch is! On a repetitive pattern, it helps knowing – for sure – what goes into what! Thank you!

  2. I was wondering if you could share the color names of the Lily Sugar ʻn Cream purple and yellow yarns shown in the photo. Iʻm having trouble finding a purple shade that looks like yours (which I love) and itʻs a very pretty shade of yellow, too!

    Thank you,

    1. The purple one was the color Orchid, I usually can find that on Joann’s website and the yellow is just the regular yellow that they have.
