Another dishcloth? Really?
I know. I know. But listen, the crocheted dishcloth doesn't get nearly enough credit. They aren't big sellers at shows or on Etsy. They are boring, right?
NO! They are amazing! They are durable and long lasting. They are 100% cotton. They can be machine washed and dried, so they are reusable, AKA: green. That's still trending, right? And my favorite part? They suds up so well! I use a lot less soap when I use my crocheted dishcloths, they maintain such a great suds.
Now, that last part can vary, depending on the stitches used, but this pattern right here, so simple, so basic, is my go-to dishcloth pattern. These stitches provide a nice, but simple texture for the soap to get all that bubbly goodness!
Any cotton yarn, and color you'd like!
