I love making these pretty dishcloths to use when I wash the dishes. They are quite abrasive, due to the pattern, and are very good at removing dirt and grease. They wash well in the washing machine and dry quickly. I love the way that they add a pop of colour to an otherwise dull job. This size is perfect for me but they can easily be made bigger or smaller, depending on what you need.
To make your own, you will need a 4mm hook, a small amount of double knit yarn, a pair of scissors and a yarn needle.
This pattern should be suitable for beginners. If you do not yet know how to crochet, you can find a basic how to crochet video here.
