tiny baubles dishcloth pattern

tiny baubles dishcloth
How does that song go? Tiny baubles… and some wine… make me happy… make me feel fine!

Oh, wait. It’s tiny bubbles? Hmm. Well, I like tiny bubbles in my wine almost as much as I like this dishcloth pattern. This is one of those “no brainer” patterns that you can work up while watching your favorite TV show and not worry about missing a minute.

This pattern makes a dishcloth that is thick and absorbent, and the baubles have good scrubbing power. I also like that the pattern appears on both sides of the cloth.  I hope you enjoy it!

Tiny Baubles Dishcloth

Size: 8″ x 8″


  • Main color (MC): 1 ball of worsted weight cotton (such as Sugar ‘n Cream)
  • Contrasting color (CC): small amount of worsted weight cotton
  • Size H crochet hook (5 mm.)

Stitches used:
Ch = chain
Sc = single crochet
DC = double crochet
HDC = half double crochet
Sl st = slip stitch


With MC, Ch 26 (for a larger cloth, chain as many as you need, as long as it’s an even number)

Row 1: SC in 2nd chain from hook and in each chain across — 25 stitches. Ch 1, turn.
Row 2: SC in 2nd chain from hook, *DC through back loop, SC*, repeat between the *s to the end of the row. Ch 1, turn
Rows 3-21: Repeat Row 2
Row 22: SC to end


Beginning in a corner, join CC and Ch 2. Work 1 HDC in each stitch and row around, working 3 HDC in each corner. Join the last stitch and first stitch with a Sl st. (A picot border would look cute on this too.)

Break yarn and weave ends.

  8. My mother has been making blankets etc. for years using this exact same stitch. I have come up with my own variation. How would I go about copyrighting?

  9. I have a question on the pattern: Is the DC and then SC done in the same stitch? Or is the DC in one, and the SC in the next one?
    Thank you.

    1. I had the same question when I first read it. But I have done it a few times, and it is DC in one, and SC in the next.
