Welcome to part 3 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:
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.
As you’ve read in parts 1 and 2 (or so I hope you have), I talked about how versatile and eco-friendly crocheted dishcloths are. Today I’m going to tell you about the cleaning products that I use in my own home.
When we bought our house a few years ago, I wanted to start using cleaning products that weren’t full of harmful chemicals but still kept things clean. I had researched a few different companies and stumbled upon Grove Collaborative.
What drew me towards Grove was their mission to cut down on waste. They also provide items that are from ethically sourced sustainable materials, that are also 100% cruelty-free and plant-based.
They offer a free 5 piece set with a purchase and a free trial of their VIP membership. It was worth taking a chance and trying something new. They also carry other popular brands that fit within their mission.
I fell in love with Grove Collaborative, because of how effective the products are on keeping my home clean is amazing. The price is great on my bank account too (which means I can purchase more yarn).
Use my affiliate link below to get a free 5 piece set with your purchase and fall in love with the products like I did.
My favorite kitchen items are:
– Gel Hand Soap
– Dish Soap – better at cutting grease than the popular ‘blue’ soap
– Coconut Scouring Pad
– All Purpose Cleaning Concentrate
– Glass Cleaning Concentrate
A stitch count has been provided at the end of each row.
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.
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.
