The Any Holiday Textured Crochet Dishcloth is a free crochet pattern for an easy and fast project featuring a unique looking stitch — the modified dropped double crochet. This stitch creates such a wonderful texture and unique look — on both sides of the dishcloth!
I first used this stitch combination in my Just Peachy Hat pattern and I can’t believe I am just now revisiting this lovely stitch. Such a wonderful texture and look!
I gave this project the name of “Any Holiday” as you can use any color combo to create a look specific to the Holiday or season desired! I am featuring it today in a patriotic 4th of July red, white and blue but have also made this in Christmas colors — green, red and white and love it as well. Imagine this in fall colors, pastels for spring — so many options!
I used small amounts of Lily Sugar n Cream cotton yarn but if you have another 100% cotton yarn available then use that instead. A great project to use up your scraps.
