Crochet Dishcloth for Summer
I am a big fan of making small projects all summer long. This crochet washcloth is a great little project to tuck in a bag and take with you. You can make them for your own home or give them as a gift.
Best Crochet Washcloth Yarn
When it comes to items that will get wet and be washed a lot, cotton is the typical go-to yarn. Most people will use 100% cotton, but I have seen a lot of cotton blend yarns lately and they seem to work just fine as long as they are mostly cotton.
The Premium Ad-Free PDF Pattern
Below you will find the free pattern with all the instructional photos and videos needed to complete the pattern, but I am also aware that several of us like to crochet on the couch, in the car, or in bed with a printout of the pattern. This is why I also offer a nicely formatted large font PDF version of the pattern that can be purchased on Etsy or Ravelry. You can print the pattern and take it on the go with you or tuck it into your project bag.
