Classic cotton dishcloth, made in 100% cotton yarn, it’s simple to make so a great
project for the beginner crocheter, a nice sized cloth which is durable, can be
used for washing those dishes or as a cloth for wiping surfaces, wet or dry.
Make for your own kitchen or just add a bottle of dish soap and you have a gift for
someone. This is the second design I have written in my cloth series, see my first
one the scrubby dishcloth pattern,
