I have to admit I have never crocheted a dishcloth – I have used one at my Mother-In-Law’s house before though and I was surprised by how effective it actually was!
I love the variety of patterns available in this book!
Dishcloths are really a great way to try new stitches – you may even find one you want to use to make a different project, like an Afghan.
This dishcloth pattern even incorporates a scrubby in the centre!
I decided to try two of the designs included in the book – and if I had had more time I would have tried more of the patterns.
I did not complete the full Rainbow Dishcloth Pattern as I wanted a smaller size cloth to give to Darla and Drew for their baths…to make it easier for them to hold onto. Sometimes facecloths can be too large for my little ones’ hands!
I really liked the variety offered in this book – these projects make excellent gifts, are practical for your own use at home and are great stash-busters! They also work-up quickly – they are perfect for quick summer time projects – they will allow you to get your crochet fix without overheating under a large bulky project!
