Join us for the #tgtdishclothmal during the entire year!! This dishcloth challenge is meant to encourage you to knit or crochet one dishcloth a week. It is a fun way to grow a collection of the best handmade dishcloths, and use them for yourself or gifts throughout the year. Enjoy this crochet pattern!

Dishcloths aren’t typically in need of blocking, but feel free to do so. If you chose a 100% yarn, I recommend simply washing these dishcloths in the washer and dryer just like clothes. They will last for years to come!
