Honeycomb Dishcloth – Free Crochet Pattern

The crochet Hexagon Honeycomb Dishcloth is my latest addition to my bee- and beehive-inspired kitchen set.

Crochet Hexagon Honeycomb Dishcloth - Raffamusa Designs

Since when I shared my Honeycomb kitchen towel, I wanted to add a matching dishcloth.

Moreover, I had lots of yellow, brown, and white leftovers in my stash. So, I went on and used those to make a hexagon dishcloth made of many little crochet hexagons!

Perfect for a little scrap-busting!

However, while for the towel I used the classic solid granny hexagons, for the dishcloth, I really wanted a completely solid fabric.

So, I came up with a slight variation of the crochet hexagon (you can find it HERE), which does not have any holes at all!

With the new hexagon, I was able to get a very similar style to the Honeycomb kitchen towel, but with a solid and nice fabric that is perfect for drying up dishes in the kitchen!
