Spring Cleaning Dishcloth CAL 2018

Now that the Spring's Fancy CAL is completely underway, let's begin another CAL.

Yes - you heard me correctly. I just can't help myself! The smell of freshly cut grass, the sound of bees buzzing, and the sight of beautifully colored flowers just puts a skip in my step. It's that time of year for Spring Cleaning! Open the windows, let in the fresh air, and let's scrub up all those dirty dishes.

This year's Dishcloth CAL is even more spectacular than last year's. We'll hook up EIGHT brand new dishcloth designs as well as FIVE of my current designs chosen by my Ravelry Mods. That's a grand total of THIRTEEN dishcloths!!!!

Each pattern will be published HERE on my Blog for FREE. All you need to do is visit here each day that a pattern is scheduled to post.You may wish to Subscribe to MoCrochet over at the right sidebar to receive current notifications of posts and/or comments.

  1. Hi Melinda, I have read this post and understand that I require an amount of worsted weight yarn per dishcloth. I am travelling overseas, and was wondering if you can give me an estimation of grams/metres required as the country I am in only has 25 gram balls (48 metres) in the worsted weight, so would need to know how many balls would be required for a dishcloth. Your help would be appreciated. Kind regards, Anne

    1. Hi Anne - With yarn weight of 4-medium and a crochet hook size I/5.5mm, I used approx 2 oz (57 grams) OR 95 yds (87 meters) per cloth. I just gathered several balls in different colors and mixed and matched. Most of the cloths are about the same size.
