Introduction

This is a round dishcloth made all in double crochet. This fits perfect in the palm of your hand to do dishes with.

Materials List

Materials:
Any cotton yarn

G Hook

Finished Size

This measures about 5" around, depending on your tightness or looseness of your gauge. But no gauge is really necessary, because you are only doing dishes with it, or cleaning counters.

That's fantastically cute! Will definitely try once I get the hang of crocheting again! Will be great to use instead of the spongie that is such a germ-breeding ground.

These are so cute! Thanks for the pattern. Do you know how they come up as wash cloths? I.e. would they soap/suds up?

I love this washcloth. It does soap up nicely and ball up when I want it easy to scrub. Great on Teflon. They whip up in no time crocheting these.
