Crocheted Buttercream Basketweave Dishcloth

Here's another crocheted cotton dishcloth which I made mostly while waiting to pick up my son from school the other day. Don't you love having little take-along projects to work on during those inevitable waiting periods of life? These are perfect!

Crocheted Buttercream Basketweave DishclothThis cloth was crocheted using Lily Sugar 'n Cream worsted weight cotton purchased from my local Michael's store. The color is called Butter Cream Ombre and I just love it! I used the Basket Weave Stitch, which is the same stitch I used in making the Crocheted Basket Weave Afghan for an old friend of mine last fall.

Crocheted Buttercream Basketweave DishclothThe texture of this stitch is just perfect for a face or dish cloth, and these colors are so soft and subtle that they would look good just about anywhere. They are certainly a lot more subtle than the colors in the Fiesta cloth I showed you yesterday!

This stitch does use a lot of yarn though, so this cloth, measuring about 11 inches square, took about 1 1/2 balls of cotton to make, so approximately 3 ounces.

I am in the process of figuring out if I can use the duck, the shamrock, and the mystery pattern Tunisian Crochet cloth charts with regular knitting and still have the designs come out in the right proportion. I will let you know what I discover. I also have a few other cloth designs to share with you shortly. Can you tell I'm having boatloads of fun with cotton lately?

Happy Stitching!
