Last week on Facebook there were a lot of comments regarding the care of dishcloths. Cindy M. wrote: “I love to make dish/bath cloths but they either bleed colors or mold quickly……your thoughts? So I asked everyone on Facebook what they thought.

The Ruffled Denim crochet pattern is now available in the Winter Dishcloth Crochet Pattern Set.
This is VERY cute! Thanks so much for all the free patterns. I’ve never been a dishcloth fan, but yesterday while doing the dishes I realized that a nubby dishcloth would have been perfect for getting into the corner of a dish I was washing. So I’ve gotta get busy making some!
A soak in cold water and white vinegar before using will also help set the colors and since most of the cottons are not colorfast I have saoked mine overnight in some baking soda to keep them fresh.
Turned out really pretty 🙂
I was wondering how to get this pattern. When I click the link it brings up a popcorn dishcloth.
This pattern was listed for free for some time. At this time it is no longer available for free. It was moved into a pattern set that we sell on our website here: https://www.maggiescrochet.com/products/winter-dishcloth-set-crochet-pattern
I apologize for any inconvenience.
