Each of these crochet dishcloths is about 6.5" square, unblocked.
The one above was made in rounds from the centre. It looks like a whole lot of small squares joined together - don't worry it's not. If it was I probably wouldn't have made it. Honestly.
The one below was made using this crochet chevron technique I found via Pinterest.
I really had fun making these, I got on a role and forgot to photograph the last few I did.
These also were inexpensive Christmas gifts, but again, made with love, with good quality 3ply cotton and 2.25mm hook.
My Mum in particular had been hinting for a long time that she wanted some. She got 4. So, Mum, no asking for more for a while, ok?
I didn't make any for myself. I'm planning on making a whole bunch more when we get to our new home in a few months or so.
This last one wouldn't sit flat no matter how much I pulled it. It's bamboo-cotton, 8ply, 4mm hook, also a great choice for dish cloths. My lack of patience wasn't about to wait for me to block them.
Most of these incorporate the Granny Square / Peggy Square age-old crochet technique. So simple. So effective. So cool.
I also made one using this cute retro square crochet pattern. It's such an easy pattern, I might (one day ish) make a blanket with it. It's very cool!
EDIT: The finished blanket using retro squares!
