Wow - it's been a while since I posted my dishcloths! I did some Easter goodies for my grandgirls - I think I posted those.... but since then - it's been dishcloths and dishcloths and dishcloths! I am ready to be finished with them :-) Finished with the project that is - I am still enjoying the quick little crochet ventures.... this is a super way to try out new stitches and ideas! But what am I going to do with 365 dishcloths??
That should be my next challenge!
At any rate - I will begin again :-)
#231 Rickrack Crochet Dishcloth - pictured below on the bottom left.. this is a combination of stitches with a really pretty effect. The photo doesn't do it justice.
#232 Tannenbaum Crochet Dishcloth - I bet you can figure out which one is the Christmas tree :-) One thing I can say after all these cloths is that I am getting quite proficient with crocheting in a couple of colors and following a chart. I can also say that I don't want to do a lot of them! It really does make a pretty cloth though - and would make a nice afghan if you really liked doing them...
#234 Red Apple Crochet Dishcloth - above on the upper left. All the comments I made about the charts are still true BUT if one had a favorite teacher, this would be worth the work! The finished cloth is absolutely adorable. I would definitely consider doing this one again for a special someone.
The next 8 cloths are pictured below:
#235 Summer Shells Crochet Dishcloth - below on the bottom right. I LOVE the color combinations I chose for this one.. really just using up scraps and coordinating colors... doesn't match my kitchen at all but makes me feel like summer :-) It wasn't hard to make but I don't think it's my favorite pattern... the cloth is nice and thick so I am pleased with the end product.
#236 Tropical Breeze Crochet Dishcloth - on the upper left... more juggling with the scraps.. another nifty pattern to try. Not really difficult but not a fave... the cloth turned out cute though!
#237 Lacy Shells Crochet Dishcloth - pictured above on the upper right. This one was easy to do - and quick - and turned out gorgeous! The BUT is that I'm not at all sure it will be a good dishcloth :-) In a different size, it would make a fantastic afghan panel. It will make a nice addition to a kitchen gift package though.. and may serve someone else just fine.
#238 Flower Child Crochet Dishcloth - on the bottom left. LOVED doing this one - it is like a granny square. Quick to work up - and very satisfying. I will probably use up a lot of scraps making more of them.... Two of them stitched together would also make a good hot mat for the table.
These cloths are still available on www.bestfreecrochet.com and are located in the August 2011 archive
