Colorblock C2C Dishcloth, Free Crochet Pattern + Video (Summer of Dishcloths CAL)


The Colorblock C2C dishcloth is a fun to stitch up project that uses a lovely palette of colors for a graphic, modern look.  Stitches are worked diagonally from corner to corner and a handy hanging loop finishes it off and works great for drying your cloth too!


This dishcloth is part of of Summer of Dishcloths CAL, our 2019 Fiber Flux summer crochet along!  Each week in July & August, I will share a new & free crochet dishcloth pattern + full video tutorial!  Click here for the other patterns in this series, I will update that page as each one goes live to serve as a directory of sorts.  Scroll to the bottom of this post for ways to show off your work and connect with other CAL makers!

Need a little help? There's a full video tutorial below too!

  • Scissors

Abbreviations and Tutorial Links:

Instructions for increase portion of the dishcloth (worked in first color):

Step 1: Ch 6
Step 2: dc into the 4th ch from the hook.
Step 3: Work a dc into the next 2 ch.
Step 4: Ch 6
Step 5: Work a dc into the 4th ch from the hook and in each of the next 2 ch.
Step 6: Slip stitch into the 3rd dc stitch to join the two blocks together OR some people prefer to slip stitch into the turning chain or turning chain space to join.  It really is a preference, do what you like best...each way of joining will look very similar.  Just be sure as you're doing all of this the tail (from where you began) is facing downward.  You might have to turn it a bit to get it in the right spot.
Step 7: Ch 3
Step 8: Work 3 dc into the turning chain space.

Repeat steps 4 through 8 to complete the first half of your dishcloth (I worked 9 rows to give me the size I wanted (9 x 9 inch finished size, just work the increase until it is about half the size of the finished piece).

***This is the point where you'll switch colors...for a more detailed demo, check out the video!***

Switch to a new color and work one more row.

Decrease portion of the dishcloth (use second color):

Step 1: When finished working the row, turn your work.
Step 2: Work a slip stitch in each of the next three dc.  (see tip below for changing colors on a new row)
Step 3: Work a slip stitch into the turning chain space.  
Step 4: Ch 3
Step 5: Work 3 dc into the turning chain space.
Step 6: Slip stitch into the 3rd dc stitch to join the two blocks together OR some people prefer to slip stitch into the turning chain or turning chain space to join.  It really is a preference, do what you like best...each way of joining will look very similar.  Just be sure as you're doing all of this the tail (from where you began) is facing downward.  You might have to turn it a bit to get it in the right spot.
Step 7: Ch 3
Step 8: Work 3 dc into the turning chain space.

Repeat steps 4 through 8 to complete the remainder of your row.  When you begin a new row, begin at step one again.  As you decrease, you will eliminate a block from each row.  

Instructions for hanging loop (optional):

Turn your work, slip stitch into each of the next 3 dc (this will get the loop in the proper spot. Ch 10, then work a sl st into the stitch in the center of the corner.  Fasten off and weave in ends.
