I have a ton of cotton yarn! Mostly Knit Picks Dishie, that has been sitting in my stash for a while. I love to make washcloths with cotton yarn! I find they are so sturdy but soft and flexible at the same time!

My favorite way to use them is in the kitchen! They are thick and great for cleaning up messes!

So I used my one of my favorite stitch combos to create this the Dude Washcloth! This washcloth is thick, yet sturdy! You’ll want to make a whole bunch of these, because they are so quick and easy to work up!

The Dude Washcloth crochet pattern also has instructions on how to change the number of stitches so you can make it any size you want! Enjoy!

Pattern Inspiration

This crochet washcloth was inspired by my Dude pattern collection. This collection is patterns for the guys! I simple stitch, one that’s not too frilly looking, and sturdy yarn that can handle wear and tear!

Dishie yarn is a great cotton yarn for wash cloths and other items that you need to hold their shape and handle big messes! It’s also super easy to just throw it in the wash with your other dirty towels and cloths and not have to worry about it.
