Crochet Dish Cloths

Here are some of the dish cloths I made. This is one of the little mundane things I do to rest my weary mind or make use of time in the car (when Byron's driving of course-I wouldn't recommend crocheting and driving!). All that's to it is 35 stitches across and 21 double stitch rows. Then finish off the edges by crocheting a simple chain stitch all around. You can get fancy and put a fan stitch around the edges or add a crochet flower embellishment. They are very useful things, and I haven't met anyone who doesn't like to receive them as a little thank you gift! I make them out of 100% cotton yarn.

These are really wonderful rags too! Kristi made me some and I grab them over any other rag in my dish rag drawer. Thanks Kristi! Love you bunches - your big sis, Melba.

Those are great! I got addicted to making those as well. You can knit them too! Ooo la la! :D They are great not just because handmade is just better all around but they're scrubbier than regular dishcloths. Love 'em!
