Crochet Spring Dishcloths

Friday, April 11, 2014

Hello friends!  I started crocheting dishcloths using the yarn that I bought last year at the Lion Brand Yarn Studio.  In case you missed all the gorgeous kitchen cotton yarn I bought you can see a photo here.  I had a fun time crocheting these this week and I will continue to make more of them in different colors.

Here are some of the dishcloths I crocheted in these bright spring colors.


The yarn I used is Lion Brand Yarn in Kitchen Cotton.  The light green colored yarn is 170 Kiwi and the turquoise colored yarn is 148 Tropic Breeze.  I found the pattern on Pinterest from a blog and to see the pattern click here.  I changed the pattern slightly by not putting a border all around the dishcloths.  

I love the way these dishcloths came out and I hope I have inspired you to crochet some too!

Have a nice weekend and please stop by on Monday for my Spring Makeup Giveaway!  You must follow me or become a follower by GFC or Bloglovin to be in the giveaway.

  2. Pretty dishcloths, Julie :-) I really like the blue cotton. Thanks for stopping by my blog and leaving a comment. I'm your newest follower now. I love Linda's link party not only because you can see all the neat things people make, but you can find blogs you didn't know about. Have a great day :-)

  4. I love knit/crochet dishcloths and faceclothes. Once I started making these, we have never gone back to regular store-bought cloths. Your colors are beautiful and springy!

  10. Those turned out great and I love the blue! I have never used crocheted dishcloths. Are they absorbent? Hope you have a wonderful weekend....Vicky

  26. Those are so pretty. I can't believe one would use them to wash dishes. My cloth dish rags quickly look terrible.

  29. I'm new to your blog (and now a new follower) and so happy to find a new spot to get some crochet ideas. I'm a novice to crochet but have fallen "hook, line & sinker" to how much fun it is. I've been using one called "Sugar 'n Cream," which is a cotton yarn, for making dishcloths. I'll have to look for the Lion's Brand Kitchen Cotton. I'm planning to try your pattern -- love how those look and your colors are so pretty!

  31. These are really pretty dishcloths, Julie. I love all the bright colors. I knitted some back in May for a KAL and had a lot of fun with them. Currently I am crocheting a shrug and knitting a summer sweater.

  32. Thanks for sharing. I found you on The Philosopher's Wife Link love today. You can never have too many pretty dishcloths. I like the pattern you used. I remake mine every spring. So pretty! I have a crochet blog too if you are interested, I linked up as well. Thanks so much!

  34. I made enough crocheted and knit dishcloths to use every day every day. I really like them.
    Wondering how you like working with this Lion Brand Kitchen yarn...is it softer than Lily's Sugar and Cream?

  35. I'm a washcloth/dishcloth kick myself lately. Thanks for pointing me to a new pattern to try - yours turned out lovely!

  36. I was all confused.. I knew it was 2015 and could not for the life of me figure what I was doing on a post from 2014! I understand now, you linked this post up.. So nice to meet you I use Sugar and Cream, need to try your Lion Brand Kitchen yarn if I can find locally. http://acitywithoutaswing.blogspot.com/

  38. I love to crochet dish clothes too. I find them an easy project to take with me when traveling. Thanks for linking to the Creatively Crafty link party.

  39. I'm a dishcloth fan as well. They're really great when learning a new stitch. The DC,SC repeat really makes a nice pattern when the square is complete, doesn't it?

  40. So great! I've been starting to crochet again and these look like a great project to try. (Visiting from #CCBG link party!)

  41. Your crocheted dishcloths are so fun, Julie! I have quite a few that were all gifts from friends. Some are so pretty I almost don't want to use them. Thanks for sharing.

    Blessings,

  43. Ok this is a craft I may need to learn, I could have tons in every color! Thanks so much for joining the Dishing It & Digging It Link Party.

  44. These are really cute, Julie, and I imagine that wiping dishes with a pretty dishcloth would make the task a lot more pleasant! Thanks so much for linking up at Best of the Weekend!
