When learning how to crochet, I started with dish clothes in order to practice keeping my edges straight. Geez, that was hard. I still love them to practice new stitches. I’ve always loved the bobble stitch and wanted something a little bit more for my boring old rags. This dishcloth uses the bobble stitch for added texture to really help scrub those dishes clean. They will also work great for countertops!
We recently filmed a tutorial on how to crochet into the back ridge of your foundation chains, which really works well with this pattern. You can find it here.
P.S. I have recently made a PDF download of this pattern for $1 with additional information on color changes and where to find recommended tags. Find it here.
