#22 Country Heart Crochet Dishcloth

This dishcloth was created using Lily Sugar’n Cream Twist Yarn for the background.  I love the way it turned out – very country looking.  Here is some information on the yarn:

  • Fantastic twisted shades for a multi-colored effect without the hassle
  • Natural, soft and absorbent cotton
  • Worsted weight—the most popular weight
  • Ideal for knit & crochet and craft projects

    Now THIS one was challenging! It looks beautiful but was a little tricky getting the stitches to follow the chart. My heart is a little lopsided.. but recognizable 🙂

    So the flip side ends up with strings going across the back of it???
