My New “Summer Dishcloth Series” Has Begun!!!Patterns - Decor . Patterns - Dishcloths and Hot Pads
I am so excited to announce that I have launched “My Summer Dishcloth Series” of dishcloth/washcloth patterns. As of this posting, I have 3 patterns posted here and will continue addint new patterns to the collection throughout July. These patterns are so perfect for the beginner crocheter or for anyone wanting to try a new stitch/stitch pattern.
The written directions will be posted here on my blog and the accompanying Video Tutorial for each dishcloth will be on my YouTube Channel!
The patterns start out as very basic and will move to a little more complicated stitch combinations. But, all will be very doable for a beginner and advanced beginner!
This is a question that I think a lot of people ask. And there are a few reasons for choosing to design and make them.
- Dishcloths make a quick, easy and very nice gift. They can be added to a kitchen gift for a bridal or housewarming party. They can be added to a “spa” basket for a bridal shower or birthday party. The oh-so-soft washcloths can be added to a baby shower present to be used at bathtime for that new little one.
- Dishcloths/washcloths are a wonderful gift to yourself. It just makes you feel good to have a new dishcloth in the kitchen. Make them to coordinate with your room and even make dishtowels, scrubbies and hot pads to go with them. You can also make yourself your own “spa” package to use in your bubble bath or just for when you are getting ready in the morning!
- Dishcloths make the perfect practice project. If you are a beginner and want a small project to make or to learn and practice a new stitch combination, the dishcloth is the perfect solution. If you are an experienced crocheter, dishcloths are a great project to learn a new stitch and then practice it without investing a large amount of time or yarn into it. It’s perfect!!
So, for all those reasons, I am offering my Summer of 2022 Dishcloth/Washclth Series of Patterns. I hope you check them out and enjoy making them!!
The first pattern is called the “Basic Background” Discloth.
And here is the pattern!
If you make one, or many, I would love to see what you make. Please post pictures here in the comments under the post, in the comments section on my YouTube Video Tutorial, or in my Facebook Group! You can also post on Instagram using the hashtag #lakeviewcottagekidsdishcloths.
So, let’s begin!!! Here is the first pattern in the series!!
