Best Yarn to Use When Making a Dishcloth / Washcloth

When making home decor items, and especially an item that is being used a lot, it’s recommended to use 100% cotton yarn, or a blend of cotton with a natural fiber. Cotton is a durable fiber, and can be easily thrown into the washing machine.

For my dishcloth, I used Lion Brand – Coboo yarn, which is 51% cotton and 49% bamboo.

Here you can find all my favorite cotton yarns.

  • The pattern can be made both as a square and as a rectangle.
  • The Wattle stitches are worked into the ch-1 sp.
  • The [1 sc, ch 1, 1 LB] are worked into the top of the LB/mb stitches (except of in row 2).
