Yarn Information:

This dishcloth was crocheted using three different Peaches & Creme yarns; two are variegated and one is solid. All three are worsted weight cotton yarns. The colors used are as follows:

  • Earthtone (variegated)
  • Shaded brown (variegated)
  • Camel (solid)

Project Details:

This is another one of those projects that looks more complex than it is. The variegated yarns contribute to the illusion.

The color changes in the dishcloth are reasonably simple; the body of the dishcloth consists of stripes worked in afghan stitch (AKA Tunisian simple stitch.) The two variegated yarns are alternated throughout the body of the dishcloth, creating a sophisticated, richly-colored fabric.
