While deciding which way to run with this project, I came up with numerous really fun ideas... but, when it came to actually making them, I knew I wouldn’t use any of them. I like my dish cloths simple. Simple is practical! Practical is useable!! The Red Heart Scrubby Cotton works WONDERFUL for this project. The yarn is really easy to work with. I love how well the cotton washes up and I love the vibrant colors available.
Based on a quilter’s block pattern, create a colorful dish scrubby that combines cotton and textured yarn for a multi purpose cleaning. Each dish scrubby consists of 4 motifs that are joined together to create a quilt-like block pattern. The four motifs are fun to rearrange to create a multiple of block patterns. Step by step YouTube video available. Dish cloth is 5 ¾” x 5 ¾” and calls for one skein of Red Heart Scrubby and Red Heart Scrubby Smoothie yarn.

I love being able to make things for specific needs. Recently I decided a hanging towel would work perfectly in our trailer bathroom. The only problem is there is a hook and not a bar to wrap a tabbed cloth around. I finished the top off with a D ring instead and it is just right. Of course I needed some cloths to match.

Looking for your go to dishcloth crochet pattern that is fun to make and perfect for gift giving (not to mention great for dish washing?) Look no further. Meet the Seed Stitch Dish Cloth. Worked corner to corner with sc rows of edging, it is reminiscent of the popular knit dishcloth. I see myself making many of these to gift to others. It is such a fun project to crochet and they make up really quickly. It is easy to memorize the “increase” portion and then the “decrease” portion of the pattern. I hope you enjoy it as well.
