SC + HDC Combo Crochet Dishcloth Pattern | The Sammy Dishcloth

Sharing is caring!

For awhile now, I’ve gotten requests for a dishcloth pattern that is a sc + hdc combo stitch, so I sat down last week and got to work on one.

The result?

This beautifully textured stitch that I’m loving and a new dishcloth pattern to stitch up. And the best part is that it is a super easy stitch to do and great for new crocheters who are looking to practice the half double crochet and single crochet stitches.
