The Whitley Crochet Dishcloth pattern uses the paired single crochet stitch and the half double crochet front loop only stitch to create a beautiful texture on the front of the dishcloth and a ridged back to help when you need to scrub things.
If you are not sure how to do these particular crochet stitches don’t worry, we have tutorials for each stitch. And we also have a video tutorial for how to make this dishcloth that shows you how to do the stitches.
