This cotton dishcloth crochet pattern features a nice texture and color-tone that you’ll be proud to show off in your kitchen or dining room. It is very easy to adjust in size, thus making it easy to whip up a placemat, coaster or even a floor mat.
Here is the dishcloth version of the baby blanket that was published week. The pattern here is given for two colors, but feel free to use anywhere between three to five colors to get the color design you like.
And as usual, this crochet dishcloth pattern is on the small side, as that is my preference. But in a simple multiple of three you can easily increase this to any size you want.
It’s a great pattern for busting through your stash, as well as for gifting to your friends and neighbors during the winter holidays.
