Surfing the Crochet Waves Dishcloth
A wave crochet pattern is a great way to give some shape to the traditional stripes and lets you create numerous color schemes. Surfing the Crochet Waves Dishcloth is an easy crochet dishcloth that is still exciting and visually appealing. Because you can never have too many of this useful kitchen item, dishcloths make great housewarming gifts for someone moving into an apartment or home for the first time. This free crochet pattern is quick to work up, although you will have to make sure you leave time to tie up the ends from the stripes. There is also a photo tutorial available to help you get the hang of the wave pattern.

Pretty. The colors of this waves dishcloth are pretty. I really appreciated the tutorial on working away your tails. It is really hard to believe that this wave pattern is created with only two lines of directions. How easy is that!

I just love the colors of this project. I was a little intimidated about the design because of all of the color changes but after I went to the tutorials with this purchase I feel like this project will not be to bad to tackle after all. If you never challenge yourself, you will never grow. I plan to start small and I would love to make this as an afghan.

What a bright colorful happy looking dish cloth! I love the colors and I love the wavy pattern. Using five different color yarns will make using any scrap yarn you have around the house more easily. Many color patterns could be used according to what you have in stock. I have a lot of scraps. I am anxious to get started.

Wow! This is "just" a dishcloth?! But to me it is a piece of art! Look at how lovely it look draped to dry over the kitchen faucet. I just might choose to do a simple single crochet edging all around it to help easily contain all those inevitable ends.

Love the look of these dishcloths. The full pattern can be found here http//www.lookatwhatimade.net/crafts/yarn/crochet/ == free-crochet-patterns/lazy-waves-dishcloth/ . These are a great way to use up scrap pieces of yarn and to help reduce the size of your stash. They also make great little gifts. The only downside to using so many different colors of yarn in such a small project though is sewing in all the yarn ends.

This pattern and color scheme will go perfectly with fiestaware! I've not done much with cotton yarn so I'm up for something new. I'm glad they advised us ahead about the tails to work in so I wasn't surprised. This also looks like it will create a nice size wash cloth too!

I really like the way the colours blend (or pop, depending on colour choices) with this pattern. I am going to adjust the sizes and make a set of placemats, and maybe some coasters to match. The designer also has a blanket pattern like this. I think I may need to make it too!

I really like this Surfing the Crochet Waves Dishcloth pattern. What a great way to use up my cotton yarn stash and have a nice dishcloth to boot. This pattern is well written and a easy read that will work out nicely. I'll be making this one, maybe two, these will make nice house warming gifts too. Thank you so much for sharing this free pattern.
