Crochet Striped Dishcloths

We are finally home, I got my photos uploaded and edited and here we go.  I am SO excited that the first 2 dishcloths came out almost perfectly square!  The 3rd I kind of winged with the design and ended up making it quite a bit bigger.

I found this FREE pattern  - Simple Stripes Dishcloths - HERE.

First of all, the very first one I was making?  ACK!  It was going horribly so I gave up on it and started over.  I didn't like the color combo and I had screwed up on the count.

So these are brand new projects.


This is the first one I started but scrapped - ICK!  (Why is the photo quality so poor???)









This is the one I did on my own and it is NOT square and larger than the others.
















I used Sugar 'n Cream Rose Pink and Peaches n' Creme Mocha Swirls...which I LOVED.   And I love the cone concept...so easy to use.  The Mocha Swirls is thinner than the pink, however, so it made a smaller total dishcloth when used alone.  There is also a shorter width on the Mocha Swirl stripes, but I love them just the same.

If you are a newer crocheter or just want something to do that is almost mindless...this is your pattern.  So easy...

I may be linking to THESE parties.

  2. These are so cute! Love the color combination! I like doing the dishcloths, too, plus they really are great for doing dishes. :)

    I'm SO happy for you that your trip went so well and no recliner was needed! Praise God! I've been working on reading the books you suggested, writing down the affirmations, etc. Thank you so much, again, for sharing about these books & what they have done for you. I'm praying they do the same for me. Love the pics of you and your friends, btw. How fun to get together with your long-time friends.

    Blessings - Julie

  3. FYI - I have a relative that has what you have. He as a pain pump - changed his life a bit...he is able to sleep a little bit more and have a conversation with his family. Lengthy car rides are unbearable for him too. He cannot sit or stand in one position too long either. I feel so guilty that it was him instead of me. I have a husband who loves and cares for me. This relative is alone. He fell from a roof onto concrete (20 or 30 feet).

  5. I have never learned to crochet. Your dish cloths are so bright and cheery. Maybe I should learn. I can knit these and love the cotton yarn. Kathi

  23. Thanks all!

    Tasha, creating your own lightbox is ADDICTING. I spent hours walking around the house looking for things to photograph. And remember, I have a simple Sony point and shoot! When I take photos, I just play around and try to find different ways to position the items.....sometimes it takes several sessions. Wish I had more specific advice. Thanks!
