#32 Evergreens in the Round Crochet Dishcloth


When I started the dishcloth challenge I contacted Carol Ballard to see if she would help us by designing and creating some dishcloths.  Every week since then Carol has sent in several dishcloths.  We are so grateful for the help.  You may have noticed Carol’s name on several of the amazing designs she has done for us including Mukluk Slippers  Have you ever heard of Mukluks? They are a soft boot traditionally made of reindeer skin or sealskin and were originally worn by Arctic natives, including the Inuit and Yupik. The term mukluk is often used for any soft boot designed for cold weather and modern designs are often similar to high-top athletic shoes.  With Carol’s designs you can crochet Mukluk Slippers for your entire family and keep their feet very warm!!
