Free Dishcloth Crochet Pattern
Irresistible colors aren’t they? The last sale that Michaels craft store held, I picked up about 10 skeins for about $8. I meant to go back for more but I got distracted making this cute little thing and others that are on the way. I’ll be sure to come back and link those.
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.
