Perfect Summer Crochet Project for all your Cotton Yarn

Summertime is the time for 2 things in the crochet world - portable projects and cotton yarn. Small dishcloths are a perfect project to work on during road trips, rainy days or enjoying the sunset on the porch. Even better? Cotton yarn always seems to be at it’s lowest price in the spring and summer months. So go through your stash and make a few of the patterns below this summer!


1. Donut Washcloth by Vivid Kreations - I think this would be just darling for tweens and teens! It would also be super cute in the kitchen as a dishcloth.

2. Butterfly Crochet Dishcloth by Yarnspirations - Such a cute shape to this dishcloth, and I think this project would be great for scrap yarn you’ve got lying around!


3. Spring Gingham Dishcloths by Left in Knots - I love this cheerful gingham plaid for brightening up my decor, and I also love playing with different color combos!
