The information indicated to watch the video to learn how to choose yarn for dishcloths, but there was absolutely no mention of yarn types. So what is the best type of yarn to use for dishcloths. I have tons of acrylic yarn left over from projects or just yarn I bought because it was on sale. Yeah, I am a yarn lover, but now I have all this acrylic to use up.

This is a Ripley's believe it or not comment. In 1952 at the age of 12 my aunt Lucille taught me to crochet beginning with dishcloths. The pattern that she taught me was the Granny's favorite dishcloth with one exception. The corner where you begin was started with a 3/4 inch bone ring and single crochets around the ring and then the granny square was started after the ring was covered and worked until you had a square. Oh, how that picture brought back memories. After working the dishcloth she proceeded to teach me the edgings on handkerchiefs. AT that time you could go to the craft store and purchase very nice handkerchiefs that had the holes already for the tiny #14 crochet needle. Too bad we all now use kleenex now. The handkerchiefs were usually very pretty. Also growing up it was a great way to teach little people how to iron and not get burned with the iron. Just couldn's help but to share memories from a 77 year old lady. LAS

I have already bookmarked the Scrubbie collection but didnt see this one on just dishcloths. Duly noted and duly bookmarked! I recognize some of the projects as ones Ive already explored, but there are several other that sound intriguing. I cant wait to delve into this collection. What the heck is a Crinkle Stitch anyway? That might be a good place to start.

How can I find mu patterns I have saved? I

Lots and lots of patterns for dishcloths, I am sure everyone will find something that they would like. It presents best use for leftover yarn, will provide colour in your home by making a few for yourself. Nice and quick to make and can be made as a last minute gift.

I am trying to get my patterns back. I lost most of them in a fire. Love this site.

I lost most of my patterns in the flood of 2011. I would like to find one from Annies Attic that was round and had a handle on it. If anyone can help me I would be very grateful

i think this is great also. i love getting these patterns free. i lost all my patterns and instructions for dishcloths in moving/

this GREAT, i love to be able to recieve patterns from Annie's Attic

Now these are really cute and easy to do. Too bad some don't know how to download to get the patterns.

All you need is to download a free PDF printer. I have Bullzip. It allows you to print anything into a pdf. Just print the pattern and save it to your computer.
