Texture Tuesday: Free Potholder, Dishcloth, and Dish Towel Crochet Patterns.
It’s Texture Tuesday! Today I am featuring the On the Range Kitchen Collection. I hope you enjoy these free potholder, dishcloth, and dish towel crochet patterns.
Just the other day I was telling my husband that we needed new dish towels, potholders, and dishcloths. Then it hit me! It’s time to design my own collection. That’s when the On the Range Kitchen Collection was born. All three of these designs use basic stitches and work up pretty quick. They make great gifts!This post may contain affiliate links, meaning I may receive a small commission from purchases made at no extra cost to you.
I used Lion Brand’s Re-Up yarn. It a nice cotton/polyester blend, 85% cotton/15% polyester. Each ball comes with 114 yds. The great thing about this yarn is it’s durable, doesn’t have excessive stretching, and the best part, it’s made with recycled cotton!
The materials are the same for all three patterns.
Cotton Worsted weight (Medium 4)
Lion Brand’s Re-Up yarn 114 yds per ball
Potholder: 50 yds
Dishcloth: 87 yds

- Ch- chain
- Dc- double crochet
- Hdc- half double crochet
- Rep- repeat
- Rnd: round
- Sc- single crochet

Potholder: 6″ x 6″ (I made mine on the small side)
8″ x 8″ instructions are added as well
Dishcloth: 9.0″ x 9.0″
Dish towel: 12.5 “x 20”
You can make any of them larger by adding sts in multiples of 2.
I used the Crisscross stitch as the main stitch for the potholder and dishcloth. It is used as part of the design on the dish towel.
Crisscross sc, hdc, & dc st: You will skip the next, sc(hdc, dc) in the next st, then you will sc(hdc, dc) in the st you skipped. Instructions will read as follows; *sk next st, sc in next st, sc in skipped st, rep from * across/around. You will sk the 1st st at the beginning of a row/round.
Find a quick video tutorial here.
Ch 1 and ch 2 do not count as a st
When making the crisscross st, always count the 1st skipped st as the same st that you chained from.
On the Range Potholder Pattern:
The potholder is worked in the round. You’ll join each round with a sl st. Use a st marker to mark your first st, if needed. You’ll notice minimal difference on which side is the right and wrong side of the st. I worked mine with tail of the chain on the outside. If you like the look of the other side better. Flip your potholder inside out before seaming closed.
Let’s get started:
Ch 31, Sc in 2nd ch from hook, sc 29 (30 sc), do not turn your work.
Now you’ll sc 30 down the other side of the ch, sl st, ch 1 (60 sc)
Rnd 1: Sk 1st st, sc in next st, sc in skipped st(crisscross made), *sk next st, sc in next st, sc in skipped st, rep from * around, sl st, ch 1 (30 sc)
Rep Rnd 1 until piece measures 6″ or 22 rows.
If your last rnd ends a few sts from the corner, sl st to the corner, ch 12, sl st to the same st, fasten off leaving a long tail to whip stitch the top of your potholder closed. Whip st top closed, fast off, weave in ends.
To make an 8″ x 8″ potholder; ch 41 and follow the instructions above. Working in the rnd until it measures 8″ in length.
On the Range Dishcloth Pattern:
Row 1: Sk 2 chs, hdc in 4th ch from hook, hdc in 3rd ch from hook(crisscross made), *sk next st, hdc in next st, hdc in skipped st, rep from * across, ch 2, turn (34 hdc)
Row 2: Sk 1st st, hdc in next st, hdc in skipped st, *sk next st, hdc in next st, hdc in skipped st, rep from * across, ch 2, turn (34 hdc)
Rep Row 2 until your dishcloth measures 8.5″ or 19 rows.
To create the sc border. Ch 1, turn, sc 33, 2 sc in the corner st, sc evenly down the side, 2 sc in the corner st, sc 32 across the bottom, 2 sc in the corner st (34 sc across bottom), sc evenly up the other side, sl st to the 1st sc st of the border, fasten off, weave in ends.
On the Range Dish Towel Pattern:
I added used some of the yarn left over from the potholder and dishcloth for the stripes. Always change color in the last st of the previous row before you chain and turn. I carried color A up the side to avoid more ends to weave.
Let’s get started:
Row 1: Dc in 4th ch from hook, Dc in 3rd ch from hook(crisscross made), *skip next st, dc in next st, dc in skipped st, rep from * across, change to color B, ch 2, turn (46dc)
Row 2: Sk 1st st, dc in next st, dc in skipped st, *sk next st, dc in next st, dc in skipped st, rep from * across, change to color C, ch 2, turn (46 dc)
Row 3: Sk 1st st, dc in next st, dc in skipped st, *sk next st, dc in next st, dc in skipped st, rep from * across, change to color A, ch 1, turn (46 dc)
Row 4: *Sc, dc, rep from * across, ch 2, turn
Row 5: *Dc, sc, rep from * across, ch 1, turn
Rep Rows 4 & 5 until you reach 18″ from the 1st row.
The last 3 rows: Rep Row 2, making the appropriate color changes as you go.
After the last crisscross row, ch 1, sc evenly around the edges for the border, adding 2 sc in each corner. Fasten off, weave in ends.
I hope you love making the On the Range Kitchen Collection as much as I do!
