Title: Dishcloths to Crochet: Fun Designs to Brighten Your Kitchen!
Author: Pat Olski
Genre: Arts & Crafts, Crochet, Non-fiction
Crocheters of all skill levels will delight in these playful patterns for crocheted dishcloths — they’re as fun to make as they are to use! Animals, flowers, and fruits are among the themes of the 25 patterns, which include Sweet Strawberry, Perky Pig, Dandy Daffodil, and other designs.
Full-color photos accompany the easy-to-follow instructions. The directions also show how to convert any of the dishcloths into a potholder with the simple addition of a ring. Great to stitch during warm-weather months, the dishcloths make cheerful displays, and the textured stitches are ideal for efficient dishwashing. They’re great gifts, too!
I normally don’t pay attention to dishcloth books. They are boring and repetitive to me. However this book caught my attention. There are different designs then I am used to seeing for dishcloths. Some I wouldn’t dream of actually using. I would use them as decoration. Even as appliques to baby blankets maybe! I love when I can come up with idea to use things that they where not meant for. The patterns seem well written. I haven’t been able to test them as my hands have been hurting very bad due to my RA. However if I want to ever crochet dishcloths I will be buying this book.
I received this book from netgalley.com for a honest review.
