Crochet Diagonal Raised Stitch Dishcloth Pattern by Crochet For You.
Happy Thursday! I have another pattern series for this month. Every Thursday of this month including today, I share free crochet dishcloth patterns.
When choosing crochet stitch for dishcloths, I myself have 2 conditions.
- the same texture on both side
- and no holes.
For today’s dishcloth pattern I used the crochet diagonal raised stitch. Crochet Diagonal Raised stitch has the same texture on both sides and no holes.
