Crochet Dishcloths And Potholders Free Patterns

Updated on July 16, 2018

Pretty Is A Pretty Does


Dish Cloths And Potholders

Its amazing what can be created with an aluminum hook and a ball of string...But one of my favorite things to make with it is dish cloths and or potholders. Not only are they useful and practical, you can whip them up fairly quick and they are inexpensive. They do not need to be blocked. When I have one of these crochet dish cloths/potholders are finished, it gives me a sense of accomplishment. I especially like working with variegated yarn, I enjoy watching the patterns and colors as they blend together every few inches or so.The tedious job of washing dishes may seem even less so, when you are washing them with one of your own crochet dish cloths. Handmade crochet dish cloths/potholders are very cute and will add charm to any kitchen.

By adding a scalloped border around a basic single crochet square you can turn something plain into something really charming...

There are so many ways to make a dishcloth/potholder, so many different stitches and designs.

Get creative make a dish cloth and or a potholder and have fun with it.

I am very happy that I am able to Knit as well as crochet. If you would rather knit than crochet or you like to do both as I do than give KNITTING DISH CLOTHS a try.

      I would suggest the lion brand cotton..But you could use sugar and cream...I prefer the lions brand it just seems nicer to work with.....I like using them on my stove..I can scrub when I need to with out scratching.

      These are super cute, but I've always assumed they were purely for looks. I'm guessing the cotton yarn (which I've never used before) might be a good choice, for absorption and firmness when scrubbing. What type of yarn do you suggest?

      This is wonderful. I still have doilies my Irish Nana crocheted as well as three of her dish cloths. They are a treasure because her hands made them.
