When I was a new crocheter, and indeed, a new knitter, I loved making dishcloths. They are fast, cheerful, have a practical use, and are a great way to learn a new stitch. And the Bright Chevron Dishcloth might just be my new favorite!

The gorgeous chevrons here aren’t made in the usual way with increases and decreases. They aren’t even made with post stitches! Rather it’s a unique stitch pattern that I’ve fallen in love with, and I think you will too. These “swatches” are too pretty to stick in a drawer!

A note on the yarn: I get a lot of questions about color bleeding when using cotton yarns marketed for dishcloth making. I tested the Lion Brand Kitchen Cotton before publishing this pattern – I mixed white and red, and put them in cold water and hot water, and even went so far as to rub them together. I’m pleased to say that the dye stayed put, with no color bleeding at all! So I highly recommend Lion Brand Kitchen Cotton for dishcloths, washcloths, spa products, and really anything you’d like to make with it!

  • US – I, 5.5mm hook (Furls Fiberarts recommended)
  • 105 yds Lion Brand Kitchen Cotton (100% cotton; Aran/yarn symbol “4”; 99 yds/91 m; 2.01 oz)
    Color A: (60 yds) Cayenne, Citrus, Snap Pea, and Tropic Breeze shown
    Color B: (45 yds) Vanilla shown
  • Stitch Markers (Clover Lock Ring Markers recommended)
  • Gauge: 14 sts x 12 rows = 4″ in pattern
  • Finished Size: 9″ x 9″

NOTE: This stitch pattern uses 2 active loops, one for each color of yarn. Use a stitch marker to secure the loop you are not currently using so the previous row does not come undone. This pattern uses some unique stitches, those are linked to their tutorials when they are available.
