Stash-Buster #8 - Dishcloths Anyone?

The rainbow mitered dishcloths were so popular 
that I felt the need to recommit and reconfirm my love for these and make some for us:
Plus I had the colors in my stash. ;-)
Although these aren't rainbow ...they coordinate with our kitchen:
(I wish I had a rainbow kitchen, that would be cool. 
Oh well, ya' gotta' dance with who brought ya'.)
 They were made for 2013...
(not a smooth segue, huh?)
Coordinates with the kitchen towel though. :-)
The basic pattern for the mitered dishcloth can be found in my Etsy shop here.
The picot edge is included in Step 5 of the Granny Rose pattern 
and can also be purchased in my Etsy shop here.

Hanging on the faucet in all its germ-free glory!

I'm still stash-busting and these are part of it:
Check it out, lots of fun stash-busting stuff going on at this happy place!
I will be forever grateful to these two ladies for the fire lighting!

  1. Beautiful! Can you use any type of yarn or is a specific kind better? Cotton, acrylic?

  5. Wow! You are really on a roll with the dishcloths and they are all so beautiful! When I crochet with a bunch of colors, I never feel like my work looks very neat. But yours are colorful and awesome! Best wishes, Tammy

  8. I, of course, love the dishcloths and have made many with your great pattern. I have got to ask, though, where did you get that calendar dishtowel? I NEED one of those!

  12. Great colour combo - I don't think a rainbow could be any prettier or more cheerful than these.

    And yes, they go perfectly with that amazing towel. :)
