By the end of this quarantine, I’m pretty sure I’ll have plenty of alternatives for paper towels with the way I’m going making all of these crochet dishcloths. This is the second crochet dishcloth pattern I’ve made since we’ve been shut-ins due to the virus that shall not be named going around.

I decided to write down what I was doing to make this crochet dishcloth when I was playing around with a crochet stitch book, learning some different crochet stitch combos.
And since crochet dishcloths are a crochet project I find easiest to come up with and learn new stitches, I just keep coming up with new dishcloths every time I’m playing around with new stitch combos.
This crochet dishcloth pattern uses the textured single crochet, it’s also commonly called the Grit Stitch.
Essentially all you’re doing is doing two single crochets in one stitch, skipping a stitch, and doing two in the following stitch, just repeat till the end of the row, turn and chain 1, then do it all over again. This can be a bit of a yarn eater, taking up 61 yards of yarn for each one, but it is still really neat looking and easy to stitch up.
