Sun Catcher Dish Cloth



Sun Catcher Dish Cloth




These dainty, bright, detailed dish cloths work up quickly and beautifully when using both acrylic or cotton yarns. 


Acrylic yarns create durable cloths with superior scrub-ability, while cotton cloths can be doubled as face cloths as well, adding an element of simple elegance or  sunshiny fun!

  These cloths are created using size I hooks and medium worsted weight acrylic yarn or
cotton yarn with their corresponding size hooks.


Note: Joins are worked with slip stitches in top of first stitch of each round.
 Be sure to count the number of stitches at the end of the rows.


 Lets Begin!


1. In magic circle, work 7 sc. Join with slip stich to top of 1st sc.
2. ch1, work 2 sc in same sp & each sc around. join. (14 sc)

I love these, but they are just too pretty for me to use for dishes. I'm going to use mine as doilies for around my house or maybe make it a lot bigger and use for a round pillow cover. Thank you for the free pattern!

At the beginning of the pattern, it says "magic circle". I guess this is crocheting in the round? How many chain stitches do you make to start. Thank you.

Google magic circle on youtube to learn how to do it. It is not a chain. It pulls tight to close, so you aren't left with a gaping hole.

I have a problem printing off the pattern. It's very pretty and I would love to print it and make it. When it printed it was over the profile of Vicki and the pattern is almost unreadable. I will have to decipher and rewrite it.

In row 6 you said to do 2 sc in sc, but in the previous row we did not do sc. I am confused?

Christine did you get an answer about the sc in row 6.... I am also confused......

Sorry it took so long to get back to you both-I did not see any messages till now.

Paula said...

These are so pretty! Do you give permission to sell these if we make them?

Hunnypie said...

Loved the pattern and the personal intro. Will keep watching for any other patterns from you.Thanks again.

Vicki Plunkett said...

You may sell them.

In rows 8&9 do you go into large chain space or into chain stitch itself?

Julie McMullin said...

What does sp mean?

Tonya Kirkpatrick said...

SP = space

Absolutely beautiful...getting ready to make one right NOW! Can't wait! Thanx for sharing girl! :0)

The magic circle is a bit tricky at first...but once you do it a few times it gets much easier...looks MUCH nicer than beg chain!
