I love trying all types of crafts, and I get excited when I complete them all. But there’s just something about actually accomplishing crochet project that gets me extra excited!! I’m no crochet pro (I wish I were!), so I just love when I am determined to make something, actually figure out how to read the pattern, and then it actually pretty much turns out. I may have started these Crochet Dishcloths over a year ago, but hey, I picked them up and finished the set and they’re pretty much awesomeness.
Growing up, we always used handmade dishcloths that were knitted by my grandma. She still supplies me with them! I tried knitting one once, but I’m really slow and haven’t really found the grove of knitting. But then I stumbled across CROCHET dishcloth patterns – now THAT’S something I can get behind.
When you crochet dishcloths, you’ll need a special kind of yarn, the kind that’s good for getting wet, etc. I used Sugar N Cream and you can get several dishcloths out of one ball (skein? is that what they’re called?). Next time I’m using THIS COLOR – so pretty!! I do love the bright rainbow colors I made – they’re going to be so fun and cheery in my kitchen!
I found the FREE CROCHET DISHCLOTH pattern for these at 5 Little Monkeys HERE. I’m not a pro at crochet, and I was able to figure out the pattern, so I’d call that a success! If you have other favorite crochet dishcloth patterns, I’d love to hear which ones.
They turned out so great!

Oh, I love crocheting dishcloths. My only issue is that they don’t seem to hold up too well to the big bad washing machine, but if I don’t put them through, they will SMELL badly and it’s gross. These are very cute and I’m going to try it out.

Saw your comment re washing your dishcloths. Place a bowl
In sink with dishcloth and white vinegar and water to clean mine. Keeps fresh and clean.

Such pretty colors for the kitchen!
Mandy thats certainly a great idea for my next project. I have been crocheting since years but always feel short of ideas when its comes to create projects. I must say you have a great choice of colors. I like all the colors you have used. Thanks for sharing this post, i am looking forward for more posts like this.
Just came across your site and love the idea of crochet cloths! it’s one thing to make if you are a beginner and I am always running out of cloths! They either get eaten by the washing machine fairy or destroyed by the dog!
I have tonnes of leftover cotton yarn so that’s exactly what I should use it for! Great idea thanks for the post.
