Crochet or Knit a Dishcloth

Crystal Miller

Are you looking for an easy crochet or knit project? Then making dishcloths might just be the answer for you. I have crocheted several of them and knit a couple too. I have been crocheting for years and only recently have gotten more serious about learning how to knit and I find this to be an easy project that gives me a lot of good practice.

To make them you will need cotton yarn. I buy the brand but I know there are other brands available. One little skein typically makes one washcloth. I have found the selection of yarn at my local Walmart to be rather limited so I have started ordering my yarn online. My favorite online resource for yarn has been The Knitting Warehouse. Their prices are reasonable, shipping is reasonable and quick.
