I prefer a crochet dishcloth that has a little bit of a raised stitch and even have a few set aside that I use as washcloths – they’re great in the bath for gentle exfoliating without being too rough. I think this pattern will work well in the bath as well as the kitchen.
Here are the two that I did. They were fun to do and worked up very quickly. Enjoy!
