Vibrant V-Stitch Crochet Dishcloth Pattern

When I nabbed these fun plates from Anthropologie, I knew this bright green yarn would coordinate perfectly. It's just so, well, vibrant! Hence the name for this crochet dishcloth.

I used Peaches & Creme yarn in Bright Lime for this project.

A few notes…

ALTERING SIZE

I made this dishcloth a little large, but you can alter it easily. Just do the initial chain in a multiple of 4 plus 9 more. For this pattern, I decided on 28+9=37.

V-STITCH HOW-TO

Double-crochet, chain 1, double crochet, all in the same stitch.

Wildflower Hat Crochet Pattern

With the weather getting chilly, I've begun my yearly tradition of going through the kids' winter clothes. Tossing mittens with no mates and donating outgrown snow gear. I love finding this crocheted Wildflower Hat in the bunch.

I crocheted this a few winters back when I was tired of matching hats to my daughter's clothing. (I'm girly like that.) With the button as the flower's center, the color possibilities are endless. Just pop one flower off, and another on.

All items pictured were made using Vanna's Choice yarn.

Lots of Loops Crochet Dishcloth Pattern

I love my dishcloths super scrubby and I think I've created my toughest one yet with my Lots of Loops Dishcloth. This sturdy, crocheted dishcloth reminds me of a lush bath mat. But don't let the softness fool you. All those loops grab the smallest bits of food or grime. You'll want to make one for each room you clean.

Lots of Loops Crochet Dishcloth

Using US size G crochet hook, ch 25. 

Row 1: Dc in 4rd ch from hook (counts as 1st dc) and each ch across; turn—23 dc.

Row 2: {Ch 7, sl st in back loop of next} across to last dc; turn—23 loops.

Row 3: Ch 3, {dc in back loop of previous dc row} across to last loop; turn—23 dc.

Rows 4-23: Repeat rows 2 & 3. 

Fasten off and weave in ends.
