What is the best yarn to use for a crochet dishcloth?
The best yarn for dishcloths is cotton. For my dishcloths, I used Sugar ‘N’ Cream. Blended cottons will work too. Cotton and soy blends are softer than 100% cotton. You just need to ensure that the yarn blend is mostly cotton. This will make it absorbent.
What crochet hook do I need to make a dishcloth?
For this crochet dishcloth, I used a crochet hook size G. Depending on how you crochet (loose or tight) and the pattern you choose you can use US size H, I or J.
