Farmhouse Dishcloth Tutorial using Paired Single Crochet

Today’s tutorial is all about the Farmhouse Dishcloth, using the paired single crochet method.

Please note: this post may contain affiliate links to yarns and other materials at no extra cost to you.

The paired single crochet is also often called “interlocking single crochet” and is done by crocheting twice into each stitch. You can learn more about this technique in the Stitch of the Week tutorials.

For this pattern, I recommend using a sturdy 100% cotton yarn such as Lily Sugar N Cream or Paintbox Cotton yarns. Baby cottons will not stand up to daily uses in the kitchen.

Pattern

Ch 31

Row 1—sc in 2nd ch from hook, PSC (starting with the sc you just made) across (30 psc)

Rows 2-30—Ch1, turn, sc in first st, PSC across (starting with first sc made).

BORDER:

Do not fasten off unless you want to change colors.  If you change colors, start out where you fastened off.  Ch1, turn work so that you are now working down the sides of the cloth.  SC evenly around cloth, putting 2sc in each corner.  SS to top of 1st sc of round.  FO, weave in ends.

This is a nice and quick little project that you can customize the colors of easily. I added two pinstripes on mine for just a little change of color. Changing colors every row makes for a very unique look with this stitch pattern.
