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. 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?

  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.
