#25 Rapid Blue Crochet Dishcloth

A couple of days ago I spoke with the manufactures of Lily Sugar ’n Cream yarn.  I am pretty sure they will help us with our challenge.  I have emailed her all the information and she will get back with me next week.  We are definitely going to have some good prizes for the top three dishcloth designs and some honorable mentions too.

Follow me onto dishcloth #26 and the rest of the story…

    FUN! I am having a blast following along making each dishcloth. I told my kids that I hope they all want dishcloths for Christmas 🙂

    what does ch-1 sp mean?

    • Crochet Mama

      the ch-1 sp is the ‘space’ left when in row 2 you chained 1 and skipped the next sc and then sc in the next sc.
