The yarn did that all on its own!

A dishcloth is a relatively easy project to crochet. The problem is that “easy” can quickly turn to “boring.” Making little squares of fabric isn’t that exciting. I generally like to make washcloths when I’m trying to learn a new stitch or technique.

This dishcloth was a little different. After the loop is created and reinforced, the cloth is created by always making the increase at the point. The original pattern calledĀ for using different colored yarn and switching on certain rows, but I just used a yarn that would self-stripe and kept going with it.

Truth be told, I end up using this one more as a potholder/trivet. It’s nice and thick and the loop makes it easy to hang near the oven.

Do you have a favorite pattern or technique for dishcloths?

  1. I don’t make my own dishcloths but we do use reusable washcloths for everything. I odn’t buy paper towels or paper napkins … but your post got me thinking. Maybe I’ll keep my eye on the lookout for some nicer cloth napkins, instead of using rough white rags.
