Simple Scrubby Dishcloth Pattern

Here’s how it works.

Last month I crocheted a dishcloth for my Mother-in-Law using the new Scrubby Cotton Yarn. She has been using it daily and is loving it. Both how well it washes dishes, how easy it is to rinse and keep clean of food particles and how quickly it dries. This month I decided to crochet a couple using a different Scrubby Yarn I had in my stash. The dishcloth below is the Scrubby Sparkle Yarn I received from Red Heart in 2016 and here is a super easy pattern you can use to make some bright and practical dishcloths too!
