About the pattern
I’ve been wanting a pop of color in my kitchen recently and what better way to inexpensively spruce up the kitchen than with some fun dishcloths!
But, in addition to wanting some color in the kitchen I wanted to solve a little problem I always have and thats finding my dishcloth laying in the sink in a little pool of water. I don’t know about you but I CANNOT stand when I find my dishcloth just laying in the sink!
In order to solve this problem, I added a loop feature so that it can be hung to dry. Not only will the loop save dishcloths from the sink bottom, but it will last a little longer between washes since it won’t wet all day in the sink.
For the colors, I wanted some neutral with just a little pop of color. The dishcloth starts off with the contrasting color pop, and then after a few rows is transitioned into the main color which coordinates very nicely.
The body of the dishcloth uses a combination of single crochets and double crochets to make a really beautiful texture thats perfect for dishcloths and I’ve used this combo for several other patterns such as this dishcloth, and this wrap.
