Simple "Granny Round" Crocheted Dishcloth


Here is a new "granny round" crochet dishcloth pattern. I call it granny round because the stitches are so like the granny squares, but, obviously, the dishcloth is round in shape. It just makes for a change from a square dishcloth. I made this set to go with the yellow celery rose printed apron and yellow rose printed dishtowels. The pattern works up pretty quick. I hope you enjoy it!

  1. How pretty! What a great way to make something simple like a dishcloth more beautiful.

    I need to learn to crochet! I am finding knitting so hard though.

    I saw a really pretty pattern in an old magazine for placements that were sunflowers with brown centres and lovely yellow petals.

    So hard to choose between hobbies!

  2. These are really, really cute!!!...full of vintage cuteness :) :) I'm going to try making up some of these!!! I love Granny Squares but I've always had trouble with the start, because I can't seem to make it look invisible!!! Do you have any tips? Love and hugs from the ocean shores of California, Heather :)

    p.s. Thanks for sharing the pattern :) :) :)

    1. If you use a magic circle to start it will make the hole in the middle invisible, if that's what you mean?

  4. Thanks for the pattern. I'm making this right now! Wish I had the same color you used, but instead I'm using Bright Orange. It's still quite cute.

  5. Oh, thank you, this is exactly what I was looking for! I'm making baby washcloths, and I had the perfect pink cotton yarn and I knew what I wanted, but I'm pretty new at crochet so I didn't feel comfortable working without a good pattern. It turned out EXACTLY how I had pictured it in my head! So cute!
