Cheerfully Simple Dishcloth
The bright and cheerful effect really shines through this Cheerfully Simple Dishcloth as it uses three fun crochet colors. You can also work this up using just one color, but using multiple gives it that fun textured look. Crocheted dishcloths like this can be made in sets or kept as single dishcloths. If you're talented enough, you might even be able to transform this pattern into an area rug. Single crochet is used throughout the design allowing you to work it up quickly.

I really like the color of the yarn used in this dishcloth and was disappointed to read in the comments that the yarn had been discontinued. I really love making dishcloths. Sometimes I start off making a dishcloth and then end up using it as a washcloth. They are very interchangeable.

I love free dish cloth patterns. This one is definitely unique, mixing multiple colors, or using just one color if you choose. I think if you only use one color the pattern will not stand out, which would make it somewhat pointless. I am thinking I will make a bunch of these for my new kitchen!

I totally agree JaneEK! These are the perfect practice pieces for using different colors and I think they might even be great to teach younger ones (anyone who is willing to learn LOL) to crochet! Cheryl Y I saw that she has other dishcloths on her sight too! What a gold mine! I love the coordinating colors! I'm also going to be practicing using cotton yarn while I'm at it. I see these in my family's future for Christmas gifts!

This is a great practice piece for using different colors. You can work them as solids like the examples, but I have my students use this project to learn how to change colors properly. Ive seen a few rather interesting ways of adding new colors, so I sometimes have to do a bit of correcting to get the technique right.

This looks like a great pattern to try. I made dishcloths two years ago as part of my Christmas gifts for my relatives, so I think it's time to make more. I have some cotton yarn just waiting to be used. I think handmade dishcloths are sturdier and thicker than store-bought ones, don't you?

I love home made dishcloths! This pattern is so well written and I love the 3 colors together. The stitches are easy too. There are other dishcloth patterns on her page as well. I saved everyone and can't wait to make them all. Great for gift giving and make some for myself. Thank-you for this free Cheerfully Simple Dishcloth pattern.
