My Bunny Dishcloth

Posted on March 25, 2012

When I first saw the McGregger’s Garden Square, I knew I had to crochet it for a dishcloth. It’s just so cute and would make a wonderful Easter gift.

I used a H (5 mm) hook when I was crocheting the square as I didn’t have a G hook available. Once I finished the square I added a few more rows to make it big enough for a dishcloth. I used Sugar’n Cream Ecru cotton to do the last 3 rows. You will start in any stitch where you did a long Dc on the last green carrot top row.

Row 1: Sc into the long Dc of the prior row, then ch 4, skip over to the next long Dc and do a Sc in the stitch. Repeat around and in corners work Sc, ch 2, Sc. Join with slip stitch into 1st Sc.
Row 2: Ch 3, work 3 Dc in each ch-4 space, in corners work 2 Dc, ch 2, 2 Dc; work 3 Dc in each ch-4 space and repeat around. Join with slip stitch into top of ch 3 beginning.
Row 3: Sc around evenly by working a Sc in each space between stitches and work 2 Sc’s in the corner spaces. Repeat around and finish off. My finished dishcloth is about 9 inches square.

I used black thread and a sewing needle for the eyes. I just made the eyes by working long stitches several times to create each eye.

For the nose I used a small E (3.5 mm) crochet hook with a double-strand of pink fingering yarn to chain 2 stitches and joined to form a circle. Then work several Sc’s into the circle to create the nose and use the ends to attach to the face of the bunny and secure the ends on the backside of cloth. I also used the fingering yarn to make the bow tie by chaining with the small hook and attached to the bunny. I left the ends on the bow as shown and then wove them under and secured them tightly to the back so it would stay in place.

I just love how this dishcloth came out. I hope you enjoy crocheting the square as much as I did. Happy Easter Everyone!

  5. I am not that creative, but my sister-in-law’s mother makes this kind of stuff all the time. I have several yarn wash cloths. I think I will pass this design to her. (Maybe she will make me one!)

    I just finished making this cute dishcloth. I’m a bit of a procrastinator since it has been on my to-do list since you first published it. What a fun pattern to work up!
