The crochet Hexagon Honeycomb Dishcloth is my latest addition to my bee- and beehive-inspired kitchen set.
Since when I shared my Honeycomb kitchen towel, I wanted to add a matching dishcloth.
Moreover, I had lots of yellow, brown, and white leftovers in my stash. So, I went on and used those to make a hexagon dishcloth made of many little crochet hexagons!
Perfect for a little scrap-busting!
However, while for the towel I used the classic solid granny hexagons, for the dishcloth, I really wanted a completely solid fabric.
With the new hexagon, I was able to get a very similar style to the Honeycomb kitchen towel, but with a solid and nice fabric that is perfect for drying up dishes in the kitchen!

New Year Resolutions Blog Hop
The pattern of the Honeycomb Dishcloth was featured in the New Year Resolutions Blog Hop hosted by Fiona of Cosy Rosie UK.
The New Year Resolutions Blog Hop is a fun idea that Fiona had to transform New Year resolutions into patterns that you can actually crochet!
As you might know, my New Year resolution (and also last year’s New Year resolution…) is to use up all my scrap yarn.
