Make A Crochet Dishcloth Set

Handmade dishcloths are a great alternative to buying them from the store as they are long-lasting and washable.

This means they are super eco-friendly and can be used again and again.

Crochet cloths are not only going to look chic in your kitchen but you can gift them to friends and family too!

Give as gifts to friends and family

Make a set of three or more cloths to tie with ribbon and give as a housewarming gift.

They can be made in any colors you like, to match your kitchen, in brights or neutrals.

I would recommend making them in 100% cotton.

Finishing and Blocking

You may wish to block your dishcloths, you can do that as follows:

  • Make sure all ends are woven in using a tapestry needle or method of choice.
  • Gently block by stretching out and pinning with blocking pins to a blocking mat.
  • Spray with water and leave to dry.
  • When dry remove the pins and your dishcloth will be lying flat.
