There are a lot of crochet dishcloth patterns out there. I’ve been designing quite a few myself (like this diagonal dishcloth!) but I wanted to do something a bit more unique.
Anyone can take a stitch pattern and make it into a dishcloth…
But a round dishcloth, that’s a little more special! I sat down one night and decided this would be the perfect new design to add to my dishcloth series. In a matter of about 45 minutes, I had the Blue Skies Dishcloth finished in my hands!
Anyway, I’m excited to share this pattern with you today.
How do you crochet a round dishcloth?
A round dishcloth will be worked by starting in the center and growing outward with crochet increases. It is a little trickier than your standard rectangle or square dishcloth, but much more unique!
Working in the round is really not too hard, and this dishcloth is a great place to begin if you’re just getting started with this technique.

Let’s talk about these materials for a second. As you can see, I used Lily Sugar ‘N Cream yarn. I personally love this yarn for dishcloths. However, there are a lot more options as well! You can really use any worsted weight cotton you might have in your stash. 100% cotton will be best. You can see my personal dishcloth yarn recommendations or cotton yarn recommendations.

Round Dishcloth FAQ
How big should a round crochet dishcloth be?
A round dishcloth can be as big or small as you want, but I’ve found that 7-8″ is a good size. Most patterns I’ve seen tend to be in this range.
Do round dishcloths work as well as square ones?
From what I can tell, yes! The shape doesn’t seem to make much of a difference when it comes to wiping off a counter or wiping up a spill. 🙂
Can I sell my round dishcloths at craft fairs/markets?
Yes, absolutely! Dishcloths are a great choice for selling at spring and summer craft shows. You can feel free to sell any of your finished items made from my pattern!
Is a circular dishcloth the same as a spiral dishcloth?
Not exactly. Spiral crochet dishcloths usually look different from a circular one. Spirals are generally made with a differnet pattern of increases, often in a hexagon shape rather than a perfect circle. However, they work exactly the same as a round dishcloth! It’s just a different look.
Round crochet dishcloths are different from your typical dishcloth, but they work just as well! The Blue Skies round dishcloth includes simple stitches with a variety of unique ones added in. It is such a quick and fun project that will last for years in your kitchen! I hope you liked this pattern and were inspired to crochet more for your own kitchen.
