The crochet Teatime Dishcloth is a simple and elegant washcloth that you can use both in the kitchen and for the bath.
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.
