Combo Stitch Crochet Dishcloth (Easy Crochet Dishcloth Pattern)

Combo Stitch Dishcloth

Sharing is caring!

I love making crochet dishcloths. They are great to have for a fast and easy crochet project.

This Combo Stitch Dishcloth was inspired from the Crochet Cat Mat. I really like the combo of the single crochet, half double crochet and double crochet stitches together, which make a Sedge Stitch. But I wanted to add a bit extra to the dishcloth and did that simply by adding in some rows of single crochet.

I used Lily’s Sugar and Cream Yarn and a 4.5mm crochet hook to make these, and they turned out awesome looking. I almost don’t want to dirty them up by using them.

I hope you enjoy making this as much as I did. The free crochet dishcloth pattern for the Combo Stitch Dishcloth is below.

  1. I love the look of this pattern. Thanks so much for posting it! It did take me a bit to get the pattern to work right though. I kept increasing stitches. Just to clarify….the chain 1 or 2 at the turn doesn’t count as a stitch? (You have 9 groups of 3 stitches and the SC at the end of the row = 28) I couldn’t get the stitches to work out to be 28 per row unless I did the final SC in the 1st SC, not in the turning chain. As well, in each row you skip the next 2 stitches, not the next 2 SC? Not sure if this is right, but it worked for me. Thanks again.

    1. You are right, my eyeballs deceived me when I was putting this together. I’m going to fix the pattern so it’s the sc and not turning chain. Thanks so much for pointing that out!

  2. I love this pattern and want to try it on a larger scale. I’m a total beginner. Is it just a 3 count + 2? Or is it a different stitch count?

    1. Christine Shaub

      I was just wondering if I could make it a little bigger, like dish towel size? In the span of 3 days, I have made 4 dish cloths. Thank you for this quick and easy pattern. I have been crocheting for close to 40 years and this is such an easy pattern.

  3. I love the look of this pattern but no matter how many times I try I always end up with to many stitches in my row?? Can’t figure out why. Any help is appreciated.

    1. It could be at the last stitch in the row instead of doing the SC, HDC, DC in that last stitch, you just do a SC. I will work on the wording of that in the pattern.

    I keep increasing stitches I’m ending correctly with thev1 single stitch however I think I’m beginning the first sc,hdc DC wrong. In the second row which single stitch do I start the sc,hdc,dc?

  5. This is my favorite dishcloth pattern. I’ve made it so many times and given away as gifts. It’s beautiful! Thanks for providing it for free!

  6. This is a great pattern- great instructions! I have tried 4 new patterns this week and found this combo stitch pattern to be the best one. It went together very easy. I had no problems with your directions! Thank you for the pattern! I will be using this one more!

  7. Love this pattern! It’s so easy and quick to work up. I’ve made it many times. The last several I made it with variegated yarn for the main pattern and a solid companion color yarn for each set of the 4 single crochet rows.

  8. Hi! Will this make more than one dishcloth per skein? I have a bunch of skeins that are not full so was just wondering if I could use those or not. Thanks!

    1. Each one of these took a little over half of a Lily’s Sugar and Creme skein. I could not quite get two full dishcloths out of one. You might be able to change the color with the single crochet stripes and get some use in for those partial skeins.

    1. It’s multiples of 3 then add 2, so the next two sizes you could go up would be a starting chain of 32 or 35.

    I am about half way through my 4th washcloth and I was wondering if I could make this into a dish towel? With your permission of course. This is such a quick pattern that I would like to make some dishcloths and dish towels for people for Christmas. Please let me know. Thank you.

  10. I am new. I would love to know how you finish off the washcloth. I tie knots. finish product does not look neat. would love for you to show me how you finish your work

    1. Instead of tying knots I just pull the thread to tighten the last stitch and then weave in the ends. I don’t currently have a tutorial for how I weave in my ends, but Niki has a great one here: https://youtu.be/IArPZig-Tl8 I use the first method that she shows in this video.

  11. This is absolutely hands down the best tutorial/instruction I have ever followed! Thanks for being so clear!
