The one thing I love is a quick and easy dishcloth pattern I can work up in between projects; well, in this case, it is the project I can work up quickly to help me get a little of my crojo back. Sometimes, you just need something simple, not lacking in the fancy factor however!
Now, I know it’s stretching it to call a dishcloth fancy, but the pattern itself is so simple and you end up with a very pretty finish, and working up something on a smaller scale can sometimes inspire an even bigger project.
I’m working on a scarf right now using the Spritz Cookie pattern because I fell in love with the simplicity of this project and, of course, the speed! It really is a quick pattern to get together. (I will post a photo of my finished scarf shortly.)
I honestly am not going into a song and dance about how I come up with the names for my patterns. Many things I see, others will not, but at the end of the day, as long as you are happy with the end result, THAT is what makes my day!
This pattern is one of my Power Hour projects because you can make multiple dishcloths in less than an hour… THAT QUICK!!! THAT EASY!!!
So now, I introduce to you, the Spritz Cookie Dishcloth pattern, I hope you enjoy your work up and of course, I thank you so much, for your interest in my patterns! Happy Yarning Friends!

FUN SUGGESTIONS FOR THIS PATTERN!
Make a scarf! A starting chain of 17 or more would offer a great width to create a scarf with this pattern! (Can’t wait to show you my finished scarf!)
Make a blanket! For a standard size throw (Approx 50 x 60), try a starting chain of 181 (45 x 4 + 1) (Based on a 6 mm hook)
I really hope you enjoyed working this pattern! It was such a quick and no-brainer pattern, I couldn’t help but make several to replace some older raggedy cloths I’ve had in my kitchen for a while now.
You could easily make multiple cloths in less than an hour! It’s that quick.
I also feel this is the perfect beginner pattern. Although the 2 together isn’t exactly your basic beginner stitch, it is just too easy to pick up and run with.
Make sure if you have any questions at all to take a look at the video tutorial linked above. Please also keep in mind, the video was created for a beginner crocheter so if you are someone with enough crochet knowledge, be forewarned, I teach this pattern at a beginner level to help with all aspects of the pattern process. I answer all comments on videos so make sure if you have a question you post it or go into our Facebook group and tag me (Colleen Hays).
I will do my very best to help!
