Well, this certainly isn’t the sexiest crochet pattern but it sure is practical. If you haven’t used crocheted dishcloths for doing your dishes, you’re missing out. They’re fabulous for scrubbing dirty dishes and many people I know swear by them.

For this pattern, I used this amazing “2nd Time Cotton” which has a little extra texture to it. This yarn is 75% recycled cotton and 25% acrylic – a fantastic blend for scrubbing and drying out a little faster than 100% cotton yarn. It’s also an opportunity to be a little bit eco-conscience and that’s never a bad thing.

This pattern is relatively simple and will give you a chance to try out the lovely primrose stitch.
