Simple Crochet Dishcloth Pattern

Simple Crochet Dishcloth Pattern

I was sorting through my yarn stash and found a ball of Lily Sugar'n Cream yarn. It's been sitting there forever, and it was time to use it up!

Since this yarn is 100% cotton, it's perfect for dishcloths. I didn't want any fancy stitches or complicated designs; after all, a dishcloth is something that will be used for a while, then discarded. 

I made three dishcloths for my kitchen. They are almost too cute to be used!
