The Strawflower Hexagon Dishcloth is a gorgeously stitchy display of rainbow colors. Using a variety of stitches, this dishcloth has it all…texture, floral center, a fun granny vibe, and endless color possibilities!
This dishcloth is part of of Summer of Dishcloths CAL, our 2019 Fiber Flux summer crochet along! Each week in July & August, I will share a new & free crochet dishcloth pattern + full video tutorial!

- I (5.5 mm) crochet hook
- Cotton dishcloth yarn (I used Scrubby Smoothie by Red Heart in the “Caribbean” “Lemony” “Bright Orange” and “Bright Pink” “Lime” and “Royal” colorways
- Tapestry needle
- Ruler or tape measure
- 9 inches across from point to point
Abbreviations and Tutorial Links:
- Back Post Double Crochet (bpdc)
- Chain (ch)
- Double Crochet (dc)
- Slip Stitch (sl st)
- Treble Crochet (tr)
Note: Each round is crocheted in a different color. When working with multi-colored projects, it is helpful to weave the ends as you go.
Ch 4, join with a sl st in the furthest ch from hook to form ring.
Round 1 (pink yarn): ch 3, then work 2 dc, then a sl st into the center of the ring. Work *(3 dc, sl st) five times for a total of 6 petals. Join with a sl st to close round.
Round 2 (orange yarn): Tie on new color onto the back loops at the top of one of the petals. Insert your hook (same place at the top of petal) as if to work a back post stitch and ch 3 (working it this way will make the chain look more consistent with the other stitches). Ch 1, then in the next space (in between petals) work a tr into the center of the ring. Ch 1, then work a bpdc into the center most dc of the next petal. Continue in this manner around the circle, working a tr, ch 1 into the center of the ring (in between petals), then a bpdc, ch 1 in center dc of each petal. Join to close round with a sl st.
Round 3 (yellow yarn): Tie on a new color into any space and ch 3. In the same space, work a dc, ch 1. Work 2 dc, ch 1 in each space around. Join to close round with a sl st.
Round 4 (green yarn): Tie on a new color into any space and ch 3. In the same space, work 2 dc, ch 1, 3 dc, ch 1 (this will create first corner of the hexagon). In the next space, work 3 dc, ch 1 (this will create the first side of the hexagon. In the next space, work 3 dc, ch 1, 3 dc, ch 1 to make the next corner. In the next space, work 3 dc, ch 1 to work the next side. Continue in this manner, working corner, side, corner, side, etc until you have a total of 6 corners and 6 sides. Join to close round with a sl st.
To add rounds to the hexagon, simply repeat round 4, adding an additional side (in between the corners) for each round worked.
I worked round 4, twice more (first in aqua, then in darker blue). Weave in any ends that remain.
