This dishcloth is crocheted using a color palette borrowed from menswear. It features solid blue and solid camel-colored yarns paired with a shaded brown variegated yarn.
The dishcloth is worked in afghan stitch, and has an edging of single crochet.
This is a new colorway of my earthtone ombre dishcloth. Use the same pattern to crochet this version, but make the necessary color substitutions as follows:
- Color A: Light Blue worsted weight Peaches & Creme cotton yarn (a solid color)
- Color B: Shaded Brown worsted weight Peaches & Creme cotton yarn (an ombre color)
- Color C: Camel worsted weight Peaches & Creme cotton yarn (a solid color)
In this colorway, the restful blue color helps to tone down the "busy-ness" of the variegated yarn.
Pairing solid yarns with multicolored yarns can give you some interesting effects. You may still get some color flashing, as I did in the sample. Interestingly enough, the flashing is much more noticeable in the photo than it is in the real dishcloth; in the actual sample, the color flashing is not as distracting as it appears on your monitor.
This dishcloth is included in an image gallery featuring photos of variegated crochet projects. Browsing through the photos in the gallery is a great way to find even more ideas for how to incorporate variegated yarns into your crochet projects.
