These colorful gingham dishcloths are a fast and fun way to update your decor for spring! So even if you still have snow on the ground, you can bring bright and fun colors inside. I made these dishcloths in pink, green and purple, but really you can make any color combo you want using basic worsted weight cotton yarn. Keep reading for the free crochet pattern for the Spring Gingham Dishcloths.
I will be honest, friends...I am totally over winter! It is snowing as I am writing this and I. AM. DONE. I'm so ready for spring sounds, smells and colors! But since I can't control the weather, I decided to control the only thing I can and that's my decor. Springtime touches are coming out in my house now, and since Easter is just around the corner a few of those decorations are popping up too!
These Spring Gingham Dishcloths were a fun, quick and inexpensive way for me to brighten up my kitchen. You will be able to whip up a set of these in an afternoon, and I think they are perfect dishcloths for spring and summer. I bet they would be a hit at summer craft fairs as well! After you make yours, remember to share photos in my Facebook community group or on Instagram with #leftinknots. I love seeing your work!
