Pointed Pink Granny Dishcloth

I’ve been on a bit of a dishcloth crocheting craze lately. Here is my latest creation. Its a crocheted cotton dishcloth or washcloth. I call it my pointed granny dishcloth.

My pointed granny dishcloth can be made with scrap cotton yarn as shown above in the second photo. It’s a great way to use up those small pieces of cotton you have in your stash. My pointed granny pattern is similar to my star dishcloth design below that features a center scrubbie option using plarn (plastic bag yarn) with 5 points.

My 5 point star dishcloth

So grab your crochet hook and crochet yourself a 4 point or 5 point star granny dishcloth using one of the free patterns. Either way, I hope you enjoy my dishcloth designs.

My Pointed Granny Dishcloth Pattern

Dishcloth measures: 9 inches wide and 12 inches wide across diagonally (4 pointed corners)
Hook: Metal H (5 mm) US sized hook

Sugar & Cream Cotton yarn (used about 2-ozs of cream and 1/2 oz green)
(This is almost a great pattern to use cotton yarn scarps as shown in 2nd dishcloth)

With center color, Ch 5, Sl St to form ring.
