I love useful projects like these. Not only would these make a lovely hostess gift but I get to learn a new stitch (the Arruga). Ive made dishcloths that are similar to the other two. Reading through the patterns, theyre all based on familiar stitches and shouldnt cause a great deal of trouble. Of course, the best hostess gift is to offer to help out using those same dishcloths!

I love to make my own dishcloths and they are my favorite go to project when I need a quick gift for a new friend or coworker. They are so easy to make and depending on the pattern they dont usually take much yarn and who doesnt use a dishcloth? These have such a Fall feel to them.

Even though these are really easy to make, they are almost to cute to use. I want to make a lot of these and have them so that they I can use them as part of the decor during the season according to the color I select. Easy pattern and thanks for sharing.

Our family is spread out but during Thanksgiving, we all meet at the hosting family member's home. We all bring our favorite dishes for the meal and a little token of thanks for the host. I know these would be greatly appreciated and I plan on making them for EVERY member.

That is a wonderful idea! I taught my daughter at age 7 to crochet, teaching her with granny squares. These dishcloths are a perfect project for beginners. You could also try using the scrubby yarn and use them in the shower! I would suggest using color-safe bleach also. Also use different colors to coordinate with the holidays!

I have been wanting to make these for a long time to use up some left over yarn and teach my daughter how to crochet. Do these hold up well in the wash? It seems like they will be washed a lot and I didn't know if they will last? Can you bleach these to disinfect?

It is make bobble MB = (Yoh and draw up a loop. Yoh and draw through 2 loops on hook) 5 times in next stitch. Yoh and draw through all 6 loops on hook.

MB I think it is make border

What does MB. Mean in the second pattern. Thanks jill
