Crochet Dishcloths From My Favorite Easy Pattern

I decided to pull out the cotton yarn and work on some dishcloths to put in my shop on Etsy.  I mentioned it on Facebook and a couple of friends already said they want some, so that's what I've been working on the last few days.  I've got enough finished to almost fill their order and once I have the ends tied in, I'll take (hopefully) better photos and get them listed.

I had some of the basic colors of cotton on hand, but I bought the peachy color (listed as Tea Rose) and the pea green (Country Green) the other day and really like them and will likely buy more.  I wish more colors of kitchen cotton yarn were available locally on cones instead of having to buy the small ball each time.  I refuse to buy online and pay the high shipping cost.

These dishcloths are from my own pattern, that can be found here.

What's your favorite dishcloth pattern?

To play along on Work-in-Progress Wednesday, make your blog post for Wednesday be about something you're working on - some type of craft, renovation project, landscaping, even that novel you're writing. You can play along even if it’s not Wednesday; I leave each WIP up until the following week. Copy the code below Rosie's picture and paste it into your blog post so that others can follow too, and see the rest of the projects that are posted here.

Make sure to click 'You are next' below to add your link here so my readers can follow it to your blog post.

** Note ** Several of you are signing up at the bottom but you’re not putting the WIP Wednesday link on your own blog. If you don’t, your readers won’t be led back here to see what others are doing and what WIP Wednesday is all about. It’s not hard, just copy the code beneath the photo above and paste it into your blog post. If you’re having trouble, please let me know and I’ll try to walk you through it.

They look really great. They have a nice border. There are a lot of patterns out there that have an unfinished look. Thanks for sharing the pattern.

That's a great pattern, Marie, I'll have to try it out. What kind of cotton do you use for the washcloths? I am still trying out different brands, and looking for any kind of hint.

I love making dish cloths. That is mostly what I list for sale on Etsy. Maybe one day I will try your pattern.

mine is up....Wednesday is Steve's day off, so since I have to use his computer for my postings I have to run him off for awhile to get it done.

I love the way your dishclothes look. My cotton washclothes are one of my best sellers online, but I sure like the looks of yours better.

I will have to try your pattern. But, of course, not try to sell them as you are already selling them made with it.
