Imagine my dismay and disbelief when, during the midst of laundering all things kitchen, I discovered a very definite lack of hand made cotton dishcloths. Shocking! I know. For a bi-yarn artists such as I, neither a spare knit nor crochet dishcloth, could be found. Given that only two were in the washing machine, this was sad news indeed.
So, as a Celebrate America activity, I made these:
Both are, quite obviously crocheted in simple patterns. This first one is a shell pattern that would be more effective in a solid color. In person, it is interesting to see the color changes make subtle diagonal wanderings across the fabric.
This one also would look better in a solid color. I had fun with this pattern because the tilted blocks are crochet on the side of a double crochet stitch. Very fun - well, 'twas fun after I muttered the dreaded, "what?"
I love crocheted or knitted dish/wash/spa cloths. So quick, so satisfying and so practical.
