Do you have little faces that need scrubbing, dishes that need washing, and near constant spills that need wiping up? Clean up messes in style with this dainty washcloth that gets the job done. It’ll leave you looking good (while it takes all your dirt). Now who couldn’t use a dishcloth like that?

For mothers of all shapes, sizes, ages, and ethnicities. <3
We love you!


Materials needed:
5mm (H) hook, or hook needed to obtain measurements.
25-30 yards of Lily Sugar’n Cream
yarn needle
a mother you know, and love

Stitches used:
ch = chain
sc = single crochet
hdc = half double crochet
dc = double crochet
sl st = slip stitch

Additional terms:
Stitching in the “3rd loop” of hdc. After turning, work all stitches for that row in the 3rd loop of the hdc from previous row (it will be in the front). Instructions: Look at the top of the stitch, and locate the sideways “V”, bend the stitch to look at the back, and you should see another “V”. You’ll be working into the back loop of that “V”, this is called the 3rd loop.

These dishcloths are gauged in love. ;)

9” x 9”

Additional Notes:
-Ch 2, and ch 3 do count as first stitch of row unless otherwise indicated.
-With the previous note in mind, I’ve put turning instructions at the beginning of the row to hopefully make things easier for beginners working this pattern. This keeps rows all together.
-Want even more options? (That’s a silly question--of course you do!) Try chaining 49 for a placemat, and repeat rows 3-6 4 or 5 more times, before adding the boarder. You’re welcome. ;)
