Here is my latest free crochet washcloth or dishcloth pattern. This cloth represents a flag and I was inspired by the flag afghan square that was featured over at Crochet ‘N’ More. I have been making facecloths for charity and thought this would make a wonderful cloth with its patriotic theme.

Here is my simple but useful corded cloth pattern that is crocheted in cotton yarn. This cloth makes an excellent washcloth or dishcloth. I added the reverse single crochet stitch border and thus the name Corded Cloth was given to this project.

Here is a solid colored cloth in denim cotton.

I have been crocheting several washcloths for the project that I joined over at Ravelry for our troops. The website is Warmth for Warriors and we are doing washcloths right now for the troops if you’d like to join in here.
