Learn how to crochet Crunchy Stitch Dishcloth! Like I shared before, I have been crocheting for as long as I can remember. It’s one of the first crafts I ever learned how to do and I’ve been “hooked” ever since!

I don’t know why it’s taken me so long to share some crochet tutorials with you. I did, however, think it was important to first share how to colorfast yarn so you would know how to keep the colors of your yarn projects from bleeding.

The second crochet pattern I’d like to share with you is the Crochet Crunchy Stitch Dishcloth.  It uses two simple stitches: slip stitch and half-double crochet.

I had been trying different patterns all winter as I was trying to find the perfect crochet pattern for making dishcloths. I tried a few variations, some with loose, almost lacy, stitches and some with small tight stitches, but found the patterns I liked the most were dishcloth patterns with a little bit of bulk and texture, like the Textured Stitch Dishcloth I shared with you previously.

Now that I know a little bit more about what to really look for in a crocheted dishcloth pattern, I’m sure I could come up with all sorts of patterns or variations of both the Crunchy Stitch Dishcloth Pattern and the Textured Stitch Dishcloth Pattern to crochet.

In the picture above you can see the Textured Stitch Dishcloth in the middle and the Crunchy Stitch Dishcloths on the bottom and top. Although the Crochet Crunchy Stitch Dishcloth doesn’t have the same texture as the Textured Dishcloth, it still has plenty of texture in a sort of scrunched up way. I guess that’s why it’s called the Crunchy Stitch!

For all the dishcloths I crocheted, I used Sugar’n Cream 100% cotton yarn from Lily®. You can purchase Lily brand yarn at your favorite craft store, including JoAnn Fabrics, Michaels, Walmart or even Amazon.  It’s important to use 100% cotton yarn because of its absorbency and durability properties.

How to Colorfast Yarn

Learn how to colorfast yarn so your colors don't bleed!

I have to admit though, that before I started colorfasting my yarn, I wasn’t very happy with the way the colors were bleeding. This one little step really made a BIG difference – for me anyway. I just couldn’t imagine giving these crocheted dishcloths as a gift to family and friends if the colors were going to bleed. Problem solved!
