Wavy Ripple Dishcloth Pattern

Posted on August 16, 2013

Here is my free crochet pattern for a wavy ripple dishcloth. I first used this wavy ripple style to crochet a lapghan and just love the look of the stitch pattern. So after some trial and errors, I came up with a dishcloth using blue tie-dye cotton Sugar ‘n Cream yarn.

Here is another dishcloth I crocheted using the wavy ripple pattern. I ran out of the pink twist cotton yarn so I only crocheted 13 rows. I added a white edging around the entire dishcloth by working single crochet stitches around evenly. I worked 2 single crochet stitches in the corners. This trim edging gives the dishcloth a little different look and may be useful it you are trying to use up scrap pieces of cotton.

My crochet pattern may be used to make a wavy ripple dishcloth or washcloth. Mix and match colors to create your own unique crocheted cloths.

    Love the ripple effect. It’s nice when everyday objects are pretty.

    Thanks for the pattern, such a cute washcloth. I’ve been crocheting for over 20 years, yet for some reason have never done the ripple stitch! hehe

    Zuleika – That was me too. I had never crocheted a ripple until I made my lapghan recently. And now I’m hooked and love the stitch and have crocheted several of these dishcloths already. Thanks for the comment and for stopping by my blog.

    I love this pattern. I first came across it in a crocheting magazine and so far have made a king sized blanket with it along with a carriage blanket (big enough for in a baby carriage.) I had forgotten about this pattern so thank you kindly for posting it!

    I’ll join the crowd. I’ve been crocheting for more than 20 years and never tried a ripple anything. I love any cotton dishcloth and this one is already at my sink. I am a hdc nut so I did change this to a hdc rather than a dc. Great pattern and fun to work up. Thank you for sharing.

    I consider myself a beginner though I have made several scarves, hats and such. I am doing something wrong. I can’t get it right past the second row! I am decreasing and never have enough stitches to do the ending 2 DC’s. What am I doing wrong? Please help.

    I sent you an email with more details and hopefully it will help. Let me know if you were able to get row 2 to work for you.
