Mama’s Easy Crochet Dishcloth just might be your new favorite! Easy to make. Fast. A pattern you can memorize quickly. These beauties are a joy to crochet!
Sigh. I can’t even. If I say I’m in love with this easy crochet dishcloth pattern am I really saying I love to do dishes? Because let’s be straight here. While I enjoy a nice and tidy kitchen, I am, in no way, someone who loves that task! You know those people who love to clean? You know the ones. Any time day or night, you can walk into their house, completely unannounced, and their house is in a beautiful, spotless state? Yeah..that’s NOT me.
My mother is. And at least one of my sisters. But if the neat-clean gene is inherited, well it just jumped right past me. And probably laughed! In fact, if you were standing on my front porch right now and looked in through the front window, you’d likely see a room that vomited yarn, paper and stacks of everything. Because that’s blogging central at the moment. My dining room. Yup..that’s how we roll here.
Sigh. But I do love a good crochet dishcloth and I adore an easy pattern. And my friends, this easy crochet dishcloth is just the thing. Grab a skein of crochet cotton, an H/5.00 mm crochet hook, your favorite drink and plop down on your most comfortable chair. Turn the TV on or maybe kick up your feet for a great conversation with your people. Settle in and enjoy.
Let’s get going on your next favorite crochet pattern!
