Free Crochet Pattern...Rainbow Sherbet Dishcloth!

This pretty dishcloth will add add a splash of happy color to your kitchen. A fun mitered square is easy to crochet and the stripes keep it interesting while working.

Rainbow Sherbet DishclothBy Jennifer Dickerson


  • Cotton Yarn, experiment with different colors for a variety of effects.  Yarn shown is Peaches 'n Creme cotton yarn in bright orange, bright pink, sunshine, and ecru)
  • I (5.5 mm) Crochet Hook
  • Tapestry Needle
  • Dishcloth shown is 7 inches wide and 7 inches tall.  However a smaller or larger dishcloth can be made by working more or less rows.


Ch 2.

In the second ch from hook, work 3 sc.
Row 1: Ch 1 and turn.  In the first stitch work a sc.  In the next stitch, work 3 sc.  In the last stitch work a sc.
Row 2: Ch 1 and turn.  In the first two stitches, work a sc in each.  In the next stitch, work 3 sc.  In the last two stitches, work a sc in each.
Row 3: Ch 1 and turn.  In the first three stitches, work a sc in each.  In the next stitch, work 3 sc.  In the last three stitches, work a sc in each.
Row 4: Ch 1 and turn.  In the first four stitches, work a sc in each.  In the next stitch, work 3 sc.  In the last four stitches, work a sc in each.
Row 5: Ch 1 and turn.  In the first five stitches, work a sc in each.  In the next stitch, work 3 sc.  In the last five stitches, work a sc in each.

Keep going in this manner until dishcloth is as large as you want it.  A sc will be added to each side, and the corner will be worked the same, with 3 sc in the corner, all in the same stitch.  So to continue the pattern, the next row would be 6 sc in each across the side, 3 sc for the corner, 6 sc across the other side.  The following row would be 7 sc, 3 sc for the corner, 7 sc.  And so on.  I worked the dishcloth in the picture until the last row had 26 sc on one side, the 3 sc corner, and 26 sc on the other side.

  5. to get the instructions without the pictures: copy and then paste to your notepad (found in all programs) notepad does not copy pictures.

  6. I love this pattern. I have made several of them. They look much nicer if you single crochet around the outer edge

  7. Thanks for sharing pattern

  8. Love the pattern 😊 so easy and fun ! Thanks for sharing this wonderful pattern. I wondered about your cotton, I used Sugar'nCream. What is the difference between that and Peaches'nCreme?
    Than you,

    1. That is a great question! I use both all the time and they seem very, very similar to me!

  9. Thank you for pattern, a great way to use scrap yarns. What I know about the difference in cotton yarns (Sugar 'n Cream and Peaches 'n Creme) is that they were both originally manufactured in North Carolina. Peaches 'n Creme brand split and is now made in Canada. I think the rest is user preference as far as color and texture.

  10. I make this pattern with cotton yarn and a G or H hook, crochet two and crochet them together around the outside with single crochet and it makes a great potholder.

  11. Jennifer how do I link to the pattern?
