#5 Center of My Heart Crochet Dishcloth





The theme for my dishcloths today is definitely Valentine’s Day.  They look so pretty when grouped together in a color scheme of pinks, red & white.  On Etsy.com I have seen some beautiful pictures of dishcloths in the most attractive color combinations.  I am up to three dishcloths now.  It takes me about 1 hour and 15 min on average to design, crochet and write a dishcloth pattern.

After finishing this dishcloth I photographed all five together and posted the photo on Facebook.  They looked so beautiful together – so bright and cheery!

    Absolutely beautiful and lots of fun to make! Your patterns are a joy to follow – instant success 🙂 That said… I’m not sure I would ever want to USE this one as a dishcloth 🙂 Maybe as a decoration… or a doily… I do love the challenge of doing the different patterns!
