Teresa's Dishcloth


Presenting Dishcloth #6!

How are we doing on our dishcloths so far? I’ve been seeing so many lovely cloths, it’s really inspiring! Colors and color placement makes such a difference and adds to the variety of each cloth. Today, we’ll use the post stitch in combination with the popcorn stitch to create a really unique design. I made mine in a solid color, but I’m anxious to see your color combinations. This design is so textural and unexpected. I’m sure you will love it!

This dishcloth is named for a moderator of my Ravelry group, as well as fellow crochet designer, Teresa – Skyhook Designs. Just like the uniqueness of her namesake dishcloth, Teresa’s designing technique is unique and unexpected. Enjoy your Teresa’s Dishcloth.

Prizes:  Cascade Yarns has generously donated some Nifty Cotton Yarn for prizes this year. This is the same yarn that I've used in all 8 dishcloth designs, and it is soooo nice. You won't want to miss out on this prize!
