Step 1: Getting Started

 

The sun is bright and birds are chirping, which reminds me that Spring cleaning is right around the corner…or just after I finish up another crochet project! Now is the perfect time to make yourself some Spring Granny dishcloths using our free crochet pattern. Crochet a pretty dishcloth based on the solid granny square motif to use in the kitchen, for cleaning or share with a friend as a lovely homemade gift. 

Create several crocheted dishcloths in all sorts of colors to match or contrast with your kitchen décor. Lily Sugar’n Cream has all sorts of new colors out and many in a nice variegated color scheme too. I was able to make two dishcloths from 1 skein of Lily Sugar’n Cream, but any cotton yarn will do the trick. I changed color before Round 6 to add a distinct border, but you could simply continue to Round 6 without changing color if you prefer. Enjoy crocheting this pattern and your Spring cleaning!
