Polyomino Puzzle Dishcloth Pattern

When you purchase through links on my site, I may earn an affiliate commission.
Here’s how it works.

Below I have included an easy pattern for you to make a square scrubby cloth – you can use this as a facecloth or a dishcloth and you can simply use 1 color of Cotton Scrubby if you don’t want to make any color changes! This design is created by building upon small sections you have already crocheted – a little bit like Tetris a little bit like Lego 😉 I have included diagrams for my color placements and you can easily change the colors up to any combinations. It was fun to crochet because it was different from just straight back and forth work and the yarn makes the sections merge together and almost appear seamless! Have fun building your own Polyomino Puzzle Dishcloth!

Have you had a chance to try the new Cotton Scrubby from Red Heart? I have and it is softer than their original Scrubby Yarn. It feels gentle against your skin. I have a couple patterns on the go using this new product and I am also planning on working up this free pattern I crocheted originally with the Scrubby Yarn with the Cotton Scrubby for my own personal use – the Scrubby Bath Pouf.  If you get a chance to try the new Cotton Scrubby out, leave me a comment below to let me know what you think of it 🙂

Review Product Received

This dishcloth was crocheted with Red Heart Scrubby Cotton yarn . You can read my Crochet Yarn Review HERE.  Red Heart sent me free samples of the Red Heart Scrubby Cotton to try. The yarn reminds me of terry cloth to the touch. You can substitute any Red Heart Scrubby Yarn, Scrubby Sparkle or Scrubby Cotton for the yarn I used in this pattern.
