Mother Nature seems to be a little confused. We experienced Spring here in Kansas, for about a week, and then Winter returned. While we didn't receive the 8+ inches of snow that some other parts of the country received, the temperatures did get below freezing. I am thankful that I didn't get out and plant flowers during that brief warm spell!

While we wait for Mother Nature to decide what season it is outside, why not Bring on Spring on the inside with some adorable floral dish clothes? These Bring on Spring Dish cloths are perfect for adding a little color to your kitchen, and the texture is great for cleaning the countertops and the dishes.

About the Yarn

Cotton Yarn is perfect for making dish clothes. Here are three I used to make mine. No matter which brand you chose, you are going to love this free dishcloth crochet pattern.

Yarn Used For Free Dishcloth Crochet Pattern

Lily Sugar 'n Cream Cotton Yarn is available at Walmart, so it is easy to grab while you are there for your weekly run, but they are limited on color choices and each store is different. I have also found this yarn online at Michael's. This yarn is a little stiff and holds up great to washing, but I find the color doesn't stay as vibrant as before washing. $2.09 for 95 yards. Browse the colors

Yarn recommendation

Knit Picks Dishie Yarn is a new yarn for me to work with. You do have to order it online and wait for it to come in. I received this ball as a gift and loved the way it worked up. A little less stiff than the Sugar 'n Cream yarn and the color is great. (Although this one is called Crème Brulee and I have never seen any Crème Brulee this color). I have yet to wash it, so I don't know how the color holds, but the site claims "machine washable and stays bright and colorful wash after wash". Pricewise it is a Great buy! $2.99 for 190 yards. Check out all of the great color options.

Yarn for Free Dishcloth Crochet Pattern

Hobby Lobby I Love This Cotton has become my favorite cotton yarn to work with over the years. It is so incredibly soft and stays bright after washing. However, the price tag is a little higher than the others. $3.79 for 153 yards. They have a great color selection too. Check out the full line.
