Here is the “bouncy bubbly” crochet pattern for dishcloth to go with this Bouncy Bubbly Kitchen Towel. The pattern is for a smaller dishcloth, but you could easily increase the size and crochet up a placemat or even a kitchen rug.
The texture of the dishcloth makes this for a natural dish scrubbie. It’s a solid texture, which means it will take longer to dry after using. So make sure to hang it up after each use to prevent any foul smells from occuring.
