Welcome to part 2 of the Frosting Collection, presented by Crochets By Trista.
I wanted to offer a set of FREE dishcloths patterns to help introduce the stitches I use in my designs.
Frosting Collection Patterns:
Buttercream – Part 1 – Here
Cream Cheese – Part 2 – Below
Marshmallow – Part 3 – Here
Meringue – Part 4 – Here
Whipped Cream – Part 5 – Here
White Chocolate Ganache – Part 6 – Here
If you couldn’t tell, each dishcloth is named after a different type of white frosting. I prefer white dishcloths because; one, they go with my kitchen, and two they are easy to bleach if needed. Obviously you can do any color of your choosing.
In Part 1 – Buttercream, I talked about how versatile crocheted dishcloths can be.
Another great thing about dishcloths is how eco-friendly they are. There are dishcloths that I have used for YEARS!
I have a few dishcloths that are strictly used for dishes, some that are used for cleaning, and even some just for the bathroom.
I’m going to be honest though, I still have plenty of regular sponges and cleaning rags. I’m starting to slowly add in my own items.
60-70 yards of 100% cotton yarn
I/5.50mm crochet hook
I can usually get 2 dishcloths (without a border) from a small 2.5 ounce/ 120 yard ball of Sugar N’ Cream in a solid color.
Ch – Chain
Dc – Double Crochet
Sc – Single Crochet
SDc – Standing Double Crochet
Sl St – Slip Stitch
St – Stitch
A stitch count has been provided at the end of each row.
SDc can be substituted with a Ch 2.
The border is optional. I personally make mine without, but I know that some like the border.
The finished dishcloth should measure to be approximately a 9″ x 9″ square. To make sure it is square, simply take a corner and fold it diagonally. I tend to line up the sides to estimate how many more rows I need to do, if any.
SDc – Starting Double Crochet – (also known as Long Chain Double Crochet or Chainless Starting Double Crochet). Pull up your loop to the height of your usual Double Crochet. YO, insert into the 1st St, YO, pull through, YO, pull through two loops on the hook, YO, pull through both loops.
An ad-free version of this pattern is available to purchase on Ravelry.
An ad-free version of all six patterns of the Frosting Collection is available to purchase on Ravelry and Etsy.
