#11 Ruffled Granny Crochet Dishcloth

 

I took our first seven dishcloths and hung them with clothespins on the clothesline.  They looked cute but I was not crazy about the clothespins.  I tried white twist ties from garbage bags and this worked great!  The dishcloths looked so beautiful even though we only had seven.

Follow me onto Dishcloth #12 and the rest of the story…

    I always love a granny square 🙂 The ruffle around the edge trims it out perfectly!
