      I have ready access to Peaches & Creme cotton yarn. Is this the same as the yarn you used? Also, what is the US equivalent for the hook? Looking at the video, seems like the hook may be larger and the yarn lighter. Can you help please???

        Hi Sharon, this is from HappyBerry’ site:

        All my patterns are in US terminology.

        You will need;
        DK/Light worsted weight 100% cotton yarn in white (of course you don’t have to use white but white here is the base colour)
        DK/Light worsted weight 100% cotton yarn in two alternate colours
        3.0mm crochet hook or similar
        Yarn needle

        Finished item using suggested materials makes a 11″ x 10.5″ wash cloth approx.

        Hope this helps! 😉

    2. I made one of these, was easy to follow and looked good….only thing changing the colors and having to work the ends in was to time consumming if your looking for a quick project it is not this

    3. Every dish towel I have made get a funky mildew smell no matter what I do. Also they get stained badly. For me, it is just not worth the time to make my own only to have them go in the rag pile.

    4. This patter is fairly easy, except for the constant changing of colors. The slip stitch across that makes the pattern is time-consuming, also. All that being said, this is not a speedy project, but the end result is lovely.

    5. How come I never seem to crochet anything for myself??? I only crochet stuff for others… Not that I mind… But I have NOTHING that I’ve crocheted… Not a single thing!!!!!

      Hi….I love these dishcloths and can’t wait to get started. Can anyone tell me what brand yarn they used? Thanks so much for any help!

    7. Yes, they do take quite a bit more time to make these, but I really like the look. I’ll just make this once in a while and stick to a more basic pattern most of the time.
