Learn how to crochet textured stitch dishcloth! I have been crocheting for as long as I can remember. It’s one of the first crafts I ever learned how to do. I’ve been “hooked” ever since!
Although, I think the very first crafty thing I learned to make was probably potholders using a potholder loom. Do you remember those? Believe it or not, you can still purchase potholder looms. The one pictured below is the one I remember using.
Well, a couple of weeks ago, I shared how to colorfast yarn to keep the colors from bleeding, in preparation for sharing a couple of my favorite crocheted dishcloth patterns, including this Crochet Textured Stitch Dishcloth.
Crochet Textured Stitch Dishcloth
The first crochet pattern I’d like to share with you is the Crochet Textured Stitch Dishcloth. This pattern is sort of a variation on the puff stitch or seed stitch. It uses two simple stitches: single crochet and double crochet.
I had been trying different patterns all winter as I was trying to find the perfect crochet pattern for making dishcloths. I tried a few variations, some with loose, almost lacy, stitches and some with small tight stitches, but found the patterns I liked the most were dishcloth patterns with a little bit of bulk and texture.
Now that I know a little bit more about what to really look for in a crocheted dishcloth, I’m sure I could come up with all sorts of patterns or variations of this Textured Stitch Dishcloth Pattern to crochet.
You see all those bumps (aka texture) and the thickness of the dishcloth in the image above? That’s what makes this pattern so great! It’s soft, yet strong and works perfectly for scrubbing even the most stubborn dirty dishes.

For all the dishcloths I crocheted, I used this Sugar’n Cream 100% cotton yarn from Lily®. You can purchase Lily brand yarn at your favorite craft store, including JoAnn Fabrics, Michaels, Walmart or even Amazon. It’s important to use 100% cotton yarn because of its absorbency and durability properties.

By the way, one of my favorite places to look for crochet tutorials is YouTube and one of my favorite channels to follow on YouTube is Jayda InStitches. She’s a little quirky, but she keeps it simple and her tutorials are really easy to follow.

If you start crocheting these dishcloths, I must forewarn you that they are addictive! You know, I really was reluctant about using them. My husband was even more reluctant, but since he’s started really using them on a daily basis, he really likes them!
I have to admit though, that before I started colorfasting my yarn, I wasn’t very happy with the way the colors were bleeding. This one little step really made a difference – for me anyway. My hubby is a little colorblind, so the bleeding of colors was really unnoticeable to him, but very noticeable to me. I just couldn’t imagine giving these crocheted dishcloths as gifts to family and friends if the colors were going to bleed. Problem solved!
