Easy Crochet Pumpkin Dishcloth

Easy Crochet Pumpkin Dishcloth Pattern  by Janice Jones     |Published 10-19-2021

Need a last minute hostess gift or a project that's entirely made just for you?  Maybe you just need to add a little color to your festivities with a couple of these easy pumpkin dishcloths.  The pattern is beginner-friendly, and all that is needed is a little yarn and a size F hook.  You can use any type of medium number 4 worsted yarn. Still, I recommend 100% cotton as it washes easily and dries fast.

This is also a great pattern to practice your double crochet stitch and while you’re at it, learn how to weave in ends.

Pattern Notes

Seven rounds creates a circle with the diameter of 7 inches or 17 cm, a good size for an average adult hand.  Feel free to add extra rounds or decrease the size by reducing the number of rounds.  Use Round 5 in the instructions to increase so that the pumpkin lays flat.
