Corded Cloth Pattern

Posted on June 7, 2012

Here is my simple but useful corded cloth pattern that is crocheted in cotton yarn. This cloth makes an excellent washcloth or dishcloth. I added the reverse single crochet stitch border and thus the name Corded Cloth was given to this project.

Here is a solid colored cloth in denim cotton.

I have been crocheting several washcloths for the project that I joined over at Ravelry for our troops. The website is Warmth for Warriors and we are doing washcloths right now for the troops if you’d like to join in here.

Here is the free crochet pattern below for the washcloth or dishcloth. Enjoy!

    Love, Love, Love this… I was going to ask if you knew that there was a ribbon in it… But then I finished reading and realized that you did that on purpose… Great dishcloth/washcloth and absolutely love the cause 🙂

    Debbie — Yes you want to work a Sc in each stitch around all 4 sides. Work 2 Sc in the corners.
