The Ideal Dish Cloth: Free Crochet Pattern
Welcome to another pattern from Missed Stitches! This one is a simple, easy dish cloth that you can make several of as gifts for Christmas, House-warming, even birthday! Use up your scrap balls of yarn for this project!
This crochet dish cloth works up quickly so you can get quite a few done in a day! I prefer to use a scratchy acrylic yarn such as Bernat Super Saver. It's soft, but scratchy for cleaning and absorbent too. This pattern works fine with cotton yarn and the spacing of stitches allows for thorough air-drying.
