CROCHET DISHCLOTHS!!!

I promised you a look into my crochet dishcloth gift set, so here are some of them:

  

  
I do not like to block so I steam ironed each dishcloth. I squared some and rolled some and made some into a triangle. Ironing the dishcloths made them look very nice and it didn’t take forever 🙂

I used many techniques and stitches.  I know I have said this before, but here it goes again:  dishcloths are perfect for when you need to practice new stitches and techniques.

For the borders I like two or three rows of the slip stitch and a variation that I did when I got bored with all the SS: I did one SS then one chain then another SS, so the single chain  suspends between two SS.

  


Another border I liked to use is the “scallop like” stitch, where you chain 3 then do 2 double crochets then anchor then a single crochet and repeat.

So, try some of these  stitches and see if  you like them… Hugs!! 🙂

  4. I do the same thing with new stitches. It’s fun having a dishcloth in the crocodile stitch or something else unusual. These are a great idea for gifts.

  6. Do you really use homemade dish cloths? I always think of making them but then I remember the dish cloths my great-aunt made for me that I’ve stuffed in a drawer because I don’t want to ruin her hard work by scrubbing my dirty crock pot with them. 😦
