If you want to learn how to crochet, a crochet dishcloth is a great project. This crochet granny square dishcloth can make a really useful handmade gift!


Make it especially nice with some  dish soap from Method. I am loving their new holiday bottles, available at Target!

Pattern credit Lily Sugar & Cream Yarn.  Crochet in Lily Sugar’n Cream or similar cotton yarn with 6 mm crochet hook (U.S. J or 10) I used a size H hook. I also strayed from the alternating color combination and also made some solid color dishcloths.
