#3 Pink Clusters Dishcloth – Maggie Weldon Maggies Crochet

It is very easy to design a dishcloth – yes even you can do it.  For this dishcloth I got out one of my crochet stitch pattern books.  I picked a pattern that looked interesting.  After crocheting about an eight inch square of the pattern I finished it off with a round of double crochet stitches.  Voila! – a dishcloth.  Try it – it’s easy.
