Another year of school has come to an end and I think it’s important to always give thanks to the amazing teachers who shape our child’s educational and extracurricular life. Last year I started my own personal tradition of making homemade soap and crochet dishcloths for all of my daughter’s teachers and coaches.

In 2015 I made the Easy Thick Crochet Dishcloth and this year I decided to design a new fun and lively granny square crochet pattern for my dishcloth.

This pattern is so fun and really simple to make. Once you learn this easy crochet pattern, you’ll be able to do it in your sleep. I’ve also included this helpful crochet video tutorial for those who find it easier to follow crochet patterns visually.

If you love making crochet projects with simple shapes, you may want to check out our Crochet Anything with Rectangles class where you’ll take the basic shape you already have down pat and turn it into useful, practical, and beautifully professional projects.
