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.
