Keep in mind this was made about 7 months ago and has been in regular use at least once a week since. And keep in mind this poor dishcloth suffered some serious nail polish, polish remover and then hot bleachy water ‘before mom sees our mess’ (Yeah I saw it…..sigh) abuse, and is still holding strong.
I picked up some cotton Sugar n Cream yarn at Hobby Lobby right before Ally and Vee went to Knitting Club for the first time. Since they were both learning I figured a dishcloth or pot holder would be a good project for them. The instructor was quick to get them working with some worsted acrylic and they brought the cotton home to me.
I’m thinking this is probably the very first thing I ever crochet. This is single crochet with colors being changed after every second row. The only hook I had back then was an “N” and because I had no idea how many to chain to make a cloth (didn’t even think to look online for patterns then!!!)
I just got out a dishcloth I liked the size of and chained til it was as long as that,
single crochet across,
chained 1, turned
and repeated the process til it was square.
If you want to make home dish dishcloths and would prefer not to knit then crochet is your ticket. I hooked this up while watching a movie so it couldn’t have taken more than a couple hours even in my newbiness.
