Dishcloths, washcloths and dish rags are similar in design; in some cases, you can use the patterns interchangeably. In some cases, when crocheting dish rags using a washcloth pattern, you might want to substitute a sturdy kitchen cotton yarn for whatever yarn is recommended in the washcloth pattern.

This dishcloth is crocheted in soothing shades of denim blue, although you can easily substitute other colors if you prefer. The plaid effect you see here was a happy accident; it's entirely due to the color shading in the ombre yarn I used. If you work this pattern, your dishcloth will turn out to be a one-of-a-kind original, due to differences in yarn dye lots, plus differences in individual crochet work.There are coordinating denim ombre potholders too.
