Super Scrubby Dish Cloth

IMG_2440.jpeg

When learning how to crochet, I started with dish clothes in order to practice keeping my edges straight. Geez, that was hard. I still love them to practice new stitches. I’ve always loved the bobble stitch and wanted something a little bit more for my boring old rags. This dishcloth uses the bobble stitch for added texture to really help scrub those dishes clean. They will also work great for countertops!
