Frosting Collection – A Set Of Free Dishcloth Crochet Patterns

***Post contains affiliate links- which means if you make a purchase from the links below, I will get a small percentage of the sales at no additional cost to you ***

Now that the Frosting Collection is complete I wanted to put all 6 of the FREE patterns in one easy to find location.

Below you will find each design listed in order of release and a brief summery of the dishcloth. You can find a more details from each dishcloth its main link, which will be provided too.

Supplies Needed

For each of the dishcloths you will need 60-70 yards of 100% cotton yarn. I used Lily’s Sugar ‘N Cream, but you could use Caron Cotton Cakes.

Lily� Sugar 'n Cream� Yarn, Solids By Sugar & Cream in White | 6 Pack | 2.5 oz | Michaels�

You’ll also need a I/9 5.50mm crochet hook. I used my Tulip Crochet Hook from Leither Co., but you can use whatever hooks you have.

Other supplies you’ll need include: scissors and a yarn needle. I purchased mine at ” target=”_blank” rel=”noreferrer noopener sponsored nofollow”>Michael’s Arts & Crafts.

Notes

Each dishcloth should be square. To see if its square, simply fold a bottom corner diagonally to the opposite corner. If the sides line up, its square; if not, you’ll need to continue on with the pattern until the sides do line up.

An optional border has been provided for each design. Keyword being ‘optional,’ I personally don’t do the border for my own dishcloths, but if I’m selling them I do.

The Patterns

Buttercream

Buttercream was the first design of the collection. It uses the same stitch pattern as my Winter Hills Cozie.

Cream Cheese

Cream Cheese uses a stitch pattern very similar to my Garnet Cowl. I love the texture the stitches provide and the great job of cleaning my dishes it does.

Marshmallow

Marshmallow uses the Herringbone Half Double Crochet. I love the detail of this stitch and how the final dishcloth looks.

Meringue

Meringue uses a stitch I haven’t used in a design YET. I learned about this stitch, the extended single crochet, when I tested a pattern for another designer.

Whipped Cream

Whipped Cream uses a similar stitch to the Meringue. Instead of doing an Extended Single Crochet, you use an Extended Half Double Crochet.

White Chocolate Ganache

White Chocolate Ganache uses my favorite stitch, the Linked Half Double Crochet. I use this stitch in at least 2 upcoming designs.

Peridot Shawl

The 8th pattern available in the Birthstone Collection.

The theme for 2020, where each month I have a cowl, scarf, or shawl pattern in the color of that month’s birthstone.

Can you believe that there are only 4 designs left in the Birthstone Collection?

Amethyst Scarf – February
Zoe’s Aquamarine Infinity Scarf – March
Diamond Shawl – April
Emerald Asymmetrical Shawl – May
Pearl Infinity Cowl – June
Ruby Shawl – July

The Yarn

I had a hard time trying to find a yarn that worked for peridot. When I was planning out the design all the stores were still closed due to state regulations.

I tried looking online and ordering something that would work. The only problem was that I couldn’t get a clear enough idea of the color through my computer or phone screen.

Since I have a large stash of yarn in the house, I had to go take a peek of what I had. Turns out that a few years ago I bought 10 skeins of Brava Sport from Knitpicks/WeCrochet in the colorway Avocado. I still had 5 skeins, just the right color and the amount I would need.

The Pattern

The Peridot Shawl uses my favorite crochet stitch, the linked half double crochet. I used the Lhdc in my White Chocolate Ganache dishcloth pattern. With that FREE pattern, I also included a photo tutorial. The White Chocolate Ganache dishcloth is the perfect project to make if you’re not familiar with the Lhdc, find it HERE.
