Snippets & Scraps Series #2 Scrappy Dishcloths



Out of all the dishcloths I designed for the Snippets and Scraps Series, the purple one pictured above is my absolute favorite.  It might be that is is my favorite color or that it uses my favorite stitch or it might be that the combination works perfectly together.  I loved it so much I made a second one.  You can see a picture of it at the very bottom of this post.  

Snippets & Scraps Series Number Two has three patterns plus general directions to turn your favorite stitch into a beautiful scrappy dishcloth.  For this series, I used the following stitches: Suzette, Lemon Peel, and Sedge stitch.  All three patterns are below.  In addition, there are instructions to create your own Snippets & Scraps Series #2 version using your favorite stitch and tips to modify the pattern based on the amount of scrap yarn you have.

  • Use coordinating solid scraps in place of the variegated yarn
  • To change the foundation chain length
    • Suzette stitch - start with an even number of chains
    • Lemon Peel stitch - start with an odd number of chains
