Everyone needs a little color in their life and the Crochet Rainbow Washcloth is a great opportunity for this.

Irresistible colors aren't they? Made with Lily Sugar n' Cream yarn, you'll be making these for all your friends.

This Cute Rainbow Daze Dishcloth can also be used as a washcloth or whimsical coaster. At a length of 7 inches, it can cover quite a bit of area and clean a lot of little faces or even glassware. It's super easy to work up and you can finish one in about 15 minutes! Make a set for your craft fair inventory or for baby shower gifts.

Speaking of baby shower gifts, before we jump to the crochet dishcloth pattern, if you're thinking of making some crochet patterns for a baby in your life, you might want to check out the professionally filmed video tutorial for making a Log Cabin Baby Blanket here.
