Washing dishes is definitely a chore, but it doesn't have to look like a dreary task. The Primrose Stitch Crochet Dishcloth is a fun and creative way to add a pop of color to an otherwise mundane task. You'll love how easy this crochet pattern is to make, so you could create a new dishcloth for use by dinnertime. The crochet primrose stitch also adds a bit of style to the dishcloth, so consider making a stack of these crochet dishcloths in an assortment of colors for a housewarming gift or bridal shower.

The Primrose stitch is created by alternating a series of double crochet shells with single crochets. Those are basic stitches that we all should know how to do! There is so much texture here, they should easily clean those dirty dishes. Although, the cloth seems almost too pretty to get dirtied up with grime and food!

Primrose is such a pretty shade of pink on this dishcloth. These are so pretty that they could actually be used as wash cloths instead of dish cloths. They would make a very pretty addition to my spa basket set that I like to make up as a welcome gift for new girls at work. I put all sorts of goodies into a basket that is meant to pamper yourself.

To the best of my knowledge, Ive never worked the Primrose Stitch, but it looks easy enough. The pattern itself consists of a foundation row followed by two additional rows that are repeated until it finishes at Row 18. The edging is just a Single Crochet, but you could add Picots if you wanted to. The author also provides instructions about how to alter the pattern if you want to adjust the size.

I have collected a lot of dishcloth patterns over the years, but ones like this are my favorite. I like my dishcloths to have a texture to them. The coarser the texture, the better they are for scrubbing. I plan to make up a bunch of these. I like using them as stocking stuffers and including them in gifts.

Hi lket! I like the idea of including these in gifts. You can never have enough dishcloths! :) Megan, AFC Editor
