Choose the Right Yarn

When it comes to crochet dishcloths, choosing the right yarn is crucial. Not all yarns are created equal, and selecting the wrong yarn can make the difference between a dishcloth that lasts for months and one that falls apart after one use. When purchasing yarn for your dishcloths, look for 100% cotton varieties. Cotton is both absorbent and durable, making it the perfect material for dishcloths.

I used the following supplies to make these 31 dishcloths:

Hook:  5 mm (H) Orange Osage Hook
Yarn: Bernat Handicrafter Cotton – Medium Weight Cotton Yarn [4] (Kitchen Cotton)

  1. I love all these dishcloth patterns. They are quick to work up and make nice last minute house warming gifts or wedding shower gifts.

  2. I crochet these dishcloths during the weekend now. These are quick, skill-building exercises. Challenging but not frustrating. I’ve been trying to post the pics via the app on this page. Or should I post on the FB page?

  3. Thank you Anette! I’m so happy to hear there is one other person (other than me!) crocheting these dishcloths this month 🙂 xo Rhondda

  4. Not only am I enjoying crocheting the dishcloth, but trying new stitches.
