For this dishcloth, I used some solid granny squares, crocheted in 3 different colors and arranged in a gingham pattern.

The solid granny squares create a soft and solid fabric, which is very functional for drying up surfaces.

For this dishcloth, I used some leftover cotton yarn that I had in my stash from last year when made my Teatime Potholders.
