In 2014, I decided to learn how to crochet and dishcloths were my first projects. Before long, I was making my own crochet dishcloth patterns.
However, this was not the first time I have tried to crochet. The first time I picked put a crochet hook was when I was a little girl.
My great grandmother tried to show me how to crochet. I never got past the chain.
So I had a bit of a challenge learning on my own. Thank goodness for the internet and instructional videos.
I enjoy creating dishcloth patterns because they are projects that I can quickly complete while the boys are taking their nap.
Items I use when crocheting dishcloths:
Cotton Yarn – For dishcloths and dish towels, I always use 100% cotton yarn. My favorite cotton yarns to use are Sugar and Cream.
Yarn Needles – I like to use metal yarn needles when I weave the ends in once I am done with the project.
Stitch Markers – If you need help keeping track, stitch markers are the perfect thing! Perfect if you need help figuring out where to place your stitches when adding an edging.
Scissors – Sharp scissors are a must when working with any yarn. It is important to get a nice clean cut.
