Hold On To Your Britches!

Dishcloth Britches

Dishcloth Britches

Do you remember these? I remember going to the church bazaar with my grandma and seeing them with the little poem attached. There are several versions of the poem floating around.

I did this pair up for a gift and did my own revised version of the poem:

With lots of love and lots of stitches,
I made for you these little britches.
Filled with warm and happy wishes…
Just untie the ribbons and use them for dishes!

They are super simple to make. I started with two square wash clothes. It doesn’t really matter which pattern you use. I kept it simple with these.

Simple Dishcloth
(Make Two)

K Hook
Lily Sugar’n Cream Cotton Yarn
Ribbon to attach britches.

Ch 28.
(Work row 1 into the back loop of the chain.)
Row 1 hdc in second chain from hook. Continue across to the end. Ch 2 turn.
Repeat Row 1 until you have enough rows to form a square.
(Rows will vary depending how loose or tightly you crochet.)
Tie off and weave in ends.

Simple Dishcloth

Fold dish clothes in half. Weave in ribbon two rows from the bottom. Tie ribbon, gathering the dishcloth to form the bottom of the pant leg. Repeat with other dishcloth.


Line the two “legs” up so they look like britches and weave a ribbon into the second row connecting the two parts. Tie with a bow.


Secure with two more bows that you weave through both layers to make the britches complete.


Attach your poem and you are ready to go!

Chime in! I’d love to hear from you. Do you remember these? Have you made them? Let me know your thoughts in the comments!

Casting off until the next time we hook up!

    I used Sugar n’ Cream cotton. Any cotton would work well.

    Yes, and there were also “Doll Dress and pants potholders,” and also “cream and sugar” potholders that were displayed, too at the church bazaars when I was growing up. As soon as I learned to crochet, I started making them and donating them to our church bazaar…such wonderful memories!!

  18. Sue

    Oh I do remember these. My mother and grandmother use to make them with dish cloths. I had forgotten all about them. Well now I know what I can make all my grandkids. Most are grown up with children of there own. So this will be fun, Thank you so much

  19. Sheri Goad

    They will love them!

  20. bremda

    How much do you charge for these

  21. Sheri Goad

    If I was doing them at a craft show I would probably charge between $8 and $10
