Dishcloth Patterns For The Beginner

This dishcloth pattern are super easy to create using any 100% cotton size med-4 yarn.  Also they are the perfect size not the big or small.  Each pattern has their own unique texturing so create all three or just the one you like.  So you can choose the perfect color combos to go with your kitchen decor theme.  Think of all the color combos you could do.  In addition they make great housewarming gifts or you could include them into a handmade gift basket.

Dishcloths are great projects to take along in the car as they are small a just the right size to fit in your purse.  Another wonderful thing about dishcloths is they are perfect for learning new stitches and techniques. They require very little yardage to complete as one skein is plenty of yarn.  However make sure you use 100% cotton yarn as it absorbs water easily and easy to keep clean.  If you love free and paid crochet patterns make sure you follow me on PINTEREST
