Crochet Pattern: Gradient Seashore Dishcloth

By Amy – Be the first to comment
Dishcloths are excellent ways to show off some of your favorite crochet stitches and could be just as well called stitch samplers. Since my family really loves fresh produce, we tend to use such cloths for produce towels, and they work beautifully. Two strands of super fine weight yarn are held together constantly for this pattern and the colors are alternated, giving it a unique gradient. The stitch is a solid shell which is a popular stitch seen often in crochet projects and easy to do. Let me know what you think! Gradient Seashore Dishcloth
