What to do when you get into a yarning rut? Well make a dishcloth, of course!
I’m not sure what my deal is lately, After creating my Tuscany bag, it took me, what seemed like forever to finish writing the pattern up with pictures, because I wanted to remake it, at least once to make sure I had everything right. The bag itself was fun, but, as everyone knows, when you have other things on your plate and on your mind, it isn’t hard to get into that block… nothing really seems interesting, what next?
I’ve heard so many others mention it at one time or another, and it’s just the way it is. You want to pick up the hook and do something, but you find yourself making rounds or rows of nothingness, or at least, I do.
I decided, it’s spring and I found a new color of Sugar and Cream at the store called Country Stripes, and I LOVE it! It is probably not a “new” color, but we haven’t had it yet at our stores, that I’ve seen, and after this fun crochet dishcloth pattern, I’ve decided to make a few more =)
If you are looking for a fun dishcloth pattern, this is a FREE crochet pattern, it is by an unknown artist, and I’ve found it in numerous areas of the web, posted by others, but not the original designer, so I will post the pattern here for you if interested.
Again! This is not a pattern created by myself:
I have completed a full video walk through on this pattern which can be found by Clicking Here!
