Get your kitchen ready for Christmas with this C2C crochet **Nordic Reindeer Dishcloth**!

For this dishcloth pattern, I used the **corner-to-corner (C2C) double crochet stitch**, and it would be nice if you already had a bit of familiarity with this technique before you start working on this project.

After the Christmas Bells Square and the Joy Square from last year, I still had a few Nordic-inspired patterns that I wanted to try, including this C2C Reindeer Square.

The size of the crochet chart is the same as for the other two C2C blocks, but this time, I crocheted my square with **Sport-weight cotton yarn** to get just the right size for a **dishcloth**.

Of course, feel free to crochet it with DK- or Aran-weight yarn, and use it as an afghan block for a **Christmas blanket** or pillow!

On the other hand, you could crochet this C2C Nordic Reindeer Dishcloth with the mini-C2C technique. In this case, the resulting square would be much smaller and you could use it as a **potholder**, a bit like the Nordic Christmas or the Home Sweet Home potholders.

## Pattern Notes

- This square is worked with the C2C dc technique.
- The written instructions indicate the number of blocks to work in each color.
- For example, “(
**A**) 2, (**B**) 4″ means that you first need to work 2 blocks with color A and then, 4 blocks with color B. - The total number of blocks per row is indicated within brackets at the end of each row’s instructions.
