Last week I shared the joy of crocheting dishcloths. I have mostly been making simple square cloths using basic stitches but I’m getting ready to branch out. I’ve been eyeing some of the most unique crochet cloth patterns online and wanted to share the twenty I think are must-see for anyone interested in following a crochet dishcloth pattern.
