#39 Spiral Crochet Dishcloth

On Feb 3rd 2011 I filed the paper work to get our Crochet Dishcloth Collection into the Guinness Book of World Records.  On their website I searched “crochet” and came up with the longest chain crocheted while running a marathon and the largest afghan which was over 80 feet!  I don’t think I would want to challenge that one.  Did you know that it is free to file?  I am going to see if I can get Lisa Gentry to join us in this challenge.  She is the world’s fastest crocheter.

Carol Ballard designed this dishcloth for our Dishcloth-a-Day Challenge.  To see more of Carol’s designs visit: MaggiesCrochet.com or her Blog: http://www.cobblerscabin.wordpress.com/

Thank you Carol.

    This one was fun to figure out and the result is stunning. I’m not sure it would be good for a beginner but it really does look nice 🙂
