Yarn Information:

This dishcloth was made using Peaches & Creme worsted weight cotton yarn in an ombre colorway known as "shaded denim." This variegated yarn features contrasting colors of blue and off-white. The cone of yarn is pictured on the upper right.

Project Details:

The dishcloth is crocheted using afghan stitch, also known as Tunisian simple stitch. The edging is single crochet, with a final round of slip stitch.

Color Patterning:

The lower photo is a close-up view of the stitches.

This particular combination of pattern, stitches and yarn produced an extreme amount of color flashing. See how the darkest blue forms an obvious diagonal, and the colors all combine to create a sort of loose plaid? That wasn't intentional - they yarn just does that when you crochet with it. I can't guarantee that your dishcloth will do the exact same thing, even if you use the same yarns and pattern, but you are likely to get a similar type of effect.

If you don't like this effect, it's probably best to avoid using this particular yarn with the dishcloth pattern I've linked. You aren't limited to using variegated yarns - the pattern would looks great when made with solid-colored yarn as well. Feel free to experiment with substituting other colors.

On the other hand, if you like the idea of being able to create an interesting patterned look without having to do any color changes whatsoever, perhaps you'd enjoy crocheting this project as shown.

Overall, I thought this was an interesting project to crochet, and I like the end result.
