Dishcloths

I have been working on some dishcloths that my kitchen really needed desperately. This first one is called Crochet Dandy Dishcloth, pattern number WR1867. Using an "I" hook and Patrons Fresco yarn in Sailor Blue, White and Flamingo I made this cloth by sticking to the pattern for everything but the colors.

This second cloth was made with Patrons Fresco yarn in Flamingo. I love this yarn for dishcloths and washcloths. I holds up nicely and creates great scrubbing power for dishes or skin. My hook size for this one was an "H" and it is called Hexagon Washcloth. Even though it is a washcloth pattern I will put it the kitchen with the other two I made and use it for dishwashing.

The last one is called Easy Ombre Dishcloth. This cloth pattern makes an excellent square. I used a "G" hook and, once again, Patrons Fresco yarn in Ocean because I do love this stretchy yarn for cloths as I previously stated. I only made three at this time but like the headbands will be making more of these in the future. These three were fast projects and fun to work on.

Ghost, OUT!

I picked up some pattens the other day to make dish cloths, now to dig out some cotton. Love your first one, great color combo.

I love the dishcloths. They are so nice to look at, make and use. They last well too.
