#21 Yellow Brick Crochet Dishcloth

A lot of the dishcloth patterns that we are posting are created using crochet pattern books.  We have several books available at MaggiesCrochet.com for that you could use to design your own dishcloth.  The dishcloths are a great way to practice new stitches without getting too frustrated like you might with a bigger project.

Follow me onto dishcloth #22 and the rest of the story…
