Granny Square Dishcloths Made With Cotton Yarn
I had a bunch of cotton yarn in my stash (Peaches and Creme Yarn) and it was time for new dishcloths. Instead of small squares of closely crocheted stitches, I made eight traditional granny squares with lots of open spaces. I make them with with 6 rounds of crochet and a size G hook. They are easy to make (each square takes about 45 minutes), very absorbent, good for scrubbing, and last a long time. You do have to wring them out really well after using and let them dry or they will get mildewed because the cotton yarn hangs onto moisture.
