Knitting and crocheting dishcloths requires different yarn than most projects. It’s very easy to find and comes in so many colors. There are three yarns I use when knitting and crocheting dishcloths.


Dishcloths are one of my favorite things to knit and crochet. They add so much color and individuality to the kitchen as well as being great for washing dishes.

There are several dishcloth knitting patterns that I love.

For me, knitting is just one aspect of being a homemaker. I create dishcloths to be used in my kitchen. When the dishcloths are faded or getting worn; I use them as cleaning rags.



When it comes to knitting and crocheting dishcloths, just any yarn won’t do. You want to use cotton yarn. If you were to use acrylic yarn, your dishcloth wouldn’t be absorbent. Cotton yarn will be able to withstand the wear and tear of washing dishes and is washable.

Lilly Sugar and Cream

Lily Sugar and Cream is my favorite. The color selection is amazing, not to mention, you can buy it at Walmart, Michaels and on Amazon which are the two places I shop most frequently. On Walmart’s website, there are over 60 colors to choose from. It’s hard to say how many are available on Amazon, but there are more than on Walmart.




Crafter’s Choice

Crafter’s Choice from Hobby Lobby is another great choice. It’s 100% cotton, so it’s washable and sturdy. On Hobby Lobby’s website, there are 62 colors to choose from. You can create some amazing dishcloths with all those color options.
