Frosting Collection – A Set Of Free Dishcloth Crochet Patterns

Now that the Frosting Collection is complete I wanted to put all 6 of the FREE patterns in one easy to find location.

Below you will find each design listed in order of release and a brief summery of the dishcloth. You can find a more details from each dishcloth its main link, which will be provided too.

Supplies Needed

For each of the dishcloths you will need 60-70 yards of 100% cotton yarn. I used Lily’s Sugar ‘N Cream, but you could use Caron Cotton Cakes.

Lily� Sugar 'n Cream� Yarn, Solids By Sugar & Cream in White | 6 Pack | 2.5 oz | Michaels�

You’ll also need a I/9 5.50mm crochet hook. I used my Tulip Crochet Hook from Leither Co., but you can use whatever hooks you have.

Other supplies you’ll need include: scissors and a yarn needle. I purchased mine at ” target=”_blank” rel=”noreferrer noopener sponsored nofollow”>Michael’s Arts & Crafts


Michaels Knitting & Crochet


Each dishcloth should be square. To see if its square, simply fold a bottom corner diagonally to the opposite corner. If the sides line up, its square; if not, you’ll need to continue on with the pattern until the sides do line up.

An optional border has been provided for each design. Keyword being ‘optional,’ I personally don’t do the border for my own dishcloths, but if I’m selling them I do.

The Patterns


Buttercream was the first design of the collection. It uses the same stitch pattern as my Winter Hills Cozie.

Cream Cheese

Cream Cheese uses a stitch pattern very similar to my Garnet Cowl. I love the texture the stitches provide and the great job of cleaning my dishes it does.


Marshmallow uses the Herringbone Half Double Crochet. I love the detail of this stitch and how the final dishcloth looks.


Meringue uses a stitch I haven’t used in a design YET. I learned about this stitch, the extended single crochet, when I tested a pattern for another designer.

Whipped Cream

Whipped Cream uses a similar stitch to the Meringue. Instead of doing an Extended Single Crochet, you use an Extended Half Double Crochet.

White Chocolate Ganache

White Chocolate Ganache uses my favorite stitch, the Linked Half Double Crochet. I use this stitch in at least 2 upcoming designs.


All six patterns are available for free at Crochets By Trista. You could purchase individual ad-free PDF’s on Ravelry. The whole Frosting Collection is available in one ad-free PDF on Ravelry and Etsy.
