Crochet Diagonal Dish Cloth

Wednesday, September 6, 2017




Hello friends, as many of you know I love crocheting dish clothes.  I found a very nice pattern to make one at the blog party, Cooking and Crafting with J & J on Monday's that I co-host with Jess from Plucky's Second Thought.  To see that blog post you can click here.


The details and pattern for this diagonal dish cloth can found from the blog Olives & Okra.




I made these dish clothes in a few sittings and I really enjoyed making them.  What I liked is that the  pattern was so easy to follow. 

**  I changed the pattern just a little, and I added a chain of ten, to make a little loop at the end of the dish cloth.  This way you can hang the dish cloth on a hook.





I used different colored yarn for the dish cloths than for the ones I found from the pattern.  I made mine in yellow cotton yarn and a combination of yellow and white cotton yarn.

You can also use colored yarn to match your kitchen or use in different colors depending upon the holidays.





These crocheted dish cloths make great gifts, and I made mine for my husband's Aunt who just turned 80!

I hope I have inspired you too to make some crocheted dish cloths.



Thanks so much for stopping by and enjoy the rest of the week and weekend.

Jess and I will see you all back here on Monday for our Cooking and Crafting with J & J Link Up!

Thanks everyone and enjoy!
