I use to crochet when I was a teen until I had my first child and then there seemed to be no time after that. I would like to pick it up again now that I am in my 60's but never can get motivated but now that I came across this dishcloth pattern I may try it again. It looks pretty easy and they make good gifts and you can never have enough. I also like that the yarns are so soft and you can pick your own colors too.

This is so country vintage, with the gingham check and all. I see how this is done now. I learned something new today! Such an adorable dishcloth that would be a welcome gift for new home owners, first apartment dwellers, and even a new mom would appreciate these. Sometimes we just want to be slightly pampered with something unique and handmade.

I tried making a Gingham Dishcloth a few years ago with no luck. The pattern didn't work. This pattern Worked!! Thank you so much for this well written, easy to understand pattern. I love the colors and so happy that someone created a easy to understand pattern for the Gingham Dishcloth. I'm a Happy Crocheter now!! Thank you so much for this free pattern!

@Cheryl Y I am so glad it worked out. We'd love to see a picture! Happy Crocheting! -Kaylee, Editor of FaveCrafts

How can it work when the third instruction, for the second row, isn't even complete? It just ends. I guess you continue on in the same way for the rest of the row? There's no telling.

Correct, you continue on with the pattern 2 more times. It will get you to the end of the row. Like it say in the directions.

No, the directions for the third row do not say that. The other rows do and thus it is implied but for a beginner it may well not be obvious which is why she asked.

Yes, you are correct. The directions were not clear on that for row #3.

Hi all! It looks like the pattern accidentally broke #3 into two lines, #3 and #4. I've updated the pattern and it should be more clear now. Thanks for pointing this out! -Dana from FaveCrafts
