On Monday, I shared a bunch of knitted dishcloths I've made recently. Today I'm going to show you my favorites - the crocheted ones. It's quite ironic that the crochet ones are my favorite, since one of the reasons I learned to knit was to be able to knit dishcloths. Maybe I'll find a really great knit dishcloth pattern, but for now, these are my favorites.
I also love the fact that this dishcloth is simple, doesn’t need any border, and comes out looking very “clean” and professional. It's called Simple Stripes Dishcloth and is available as a free download on Ravelry.
I made it in a few more colors, too ...
Natural and Fiesta yarns from Peaches & Creme
On its own, the Fiesta colorway is pretty overwhelming. Paired with this natural color, though, I really like it - in small doses. :) It’s just cheery enough to make a person smile in the kitchen.
For this one, I used a bright color for the main part and a neutral for the stripe. Since I was using up the last little bit of the Natural-color cone, I only made one of these. I really, really like it because I adore the color yellow (Dandelion Yellow in this case).
This Scrubbie Dots pattern is from the same designer, and I love it! It's also available on Ravelry as a free download.
What I love most about these is that they were designed to use all scraps. Trust me, they use up teeny, tiny scraps. Well, not 6" scraps, but you know what I mean ...
This is my favorite scrubbie pattern, and it will be my go-to pattern for my cotton dishcloth scraps from now on.
