Flag Washcloth or Dishcloth Pattern

Posted on June 23, 2012


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.
