Mismatched Dishcloth


For my new dishcloth, I thought I’d go with a combination of my favorite crochet techniques. I was flipping through a crochet stitch dictionary & happened across a wave and chevron stitch and thought “perfect!”   A few variations of my own and I have a colorful new dishcloth to share!


I really liked the mismatched striping too – the pattern repeat is 6 rows, but you change colors every 2 rows – so with 4 colors, it means each color stripe has a different look.  I like that the waves are all different colors.


Naturally, I choose the Dishie colors I like – blues ( Azure and Blue ) & greens (Tranquil) with a little purple (Mulberry) for a pop – but you should feel free to choose colors you like together.  For my next one, I may try it with 3 colors in Dishie Fiesta Red, Swan and Silver to more match my kitchen.

    I agree with Melanie – this would make a beautiful afghan!

    I agree with Mary M! So, so pretty–and a good way to use up some favorite leftover colors.

    My daughter spied this dish cloth and. Wants that blanket for her bed.. how to enlarge pattern from dish cloth to Afghan

      This pattern would be easy to adapt to an afghan. Simply chain a multiple of 6 until it is as wide as you want it, then add 2 more chains.
      Follow the pattern directions as written until it is as long as you want it, then follow the final row directions.

    For a “mismatched” dishcloth, this sure is beautiful! I think it’s my favorite so far of this whole series. =)
