Crochet Dishcloths are a time-tested favorite for gifting at Christmas. Mostly because they're very quick and easy to whip up and make for the perfect practical gift to just about anyone.
I love making them AND using them! I recently got my Mom hooked on them too. Since it's Summer, I'm more into making smaller projects; non-blankets, so I've added a new pattern to my set.
You've probably seen this one around the internet before. It's a simple single crochet and chain one pattern. I love making it because it's fast! I am not a big fan of making things comprised of lots of single crochet stitches, but this one makes an exception.
I normally use Hobby Lobby I Love This Yarn, but I had some Lily Sugar'n Cream leftover so I used it instead. For the ones pictured, I used Mint and Poppy(ombre).
1 ball each of Mint and Poppy(Ombre) Lily Sugar'n Cream Cotton yarn
5mm/H8 Crochet Hook
Row 1: sc in 2nd ch from hook and in each ch across
Row 2: Ch 1, turn, sc in 1st two sc, *ch 1, sk next sc, sc in next sc, repeat from * to last 2 sc, sc in last 2 sc
Row 3: Ch 1, turn, sc in 1st sc, *ch 1, sk next sc, sc in next sc, repeat from * to end
Row 4: Ch 1, turn, sc in 1st sc and ch-1sp, *ch 1, sk next sc, sc in next sc, repeat from * to last 2 sc, sc in last 2 sc
Repeat rows 3 and 4 until desired size.
For my color variation, I did 12 rows of Mint, then added Poppy for 4 rows, and finally switching back to Mint for another 11 rows, finishing off with a final row of single crochet to match the starting row.
