Get Ready for Spring Cleaning With Crocheted Scrubbers and Dishcloths

Easy Half Double Crochet Dishcloth Pattern for Beginners -- This is an easy crochet dishcloth pattern for beginners.
These pretty cloths could be used as either dishcloths or washcloths.

According to my calendar, today — Wednesday, March 20, 2019 — is the first day of spring. You know what that means: Time for spring cleaning. Uggh.

I don’t much enjoy cleaning, although I sure love it when everything is clean. It’s hard to get motivated to start — but since I never need much prompting to get motivated to crochet, I thought I’d try making some projects that’ll help with the cleaning as well. Sometimes, it’s little things like soft, pretty dishcloths or innovative recycled scrubbies that can make all the difference in whether I ever actually motivate to clean anything.


Hey, whatever works, right?

Are you planning on doing any spring cleaning this year? If you’re going to get to work on it, you might as well have some cute crocheted dishcloths and fun crocheted scrubbies to make your tasks more pleasant enjoyable bearable. If you must clean, (and of course you eventually must, right?) please do help yourself to any of our patterns for knitting and crocheting these types of projects.

Any time is a fantastic time to crochet a dishcloth or washcloth, but they make particularly wonderful projects for working on during the spring and summer months.

Pictured here: On the right, we have an easy, spring-friendly crochet dishcloth or washcloth worked in an interesting single crochet mesh stitch.

When I was in the planning stages of designing this crochet pattern, I intended for the finished object to be a dishcloth I could use in the kitchen for washing dishes and general cleaning tasks. I figured that such a dischloth would be fantastic for spring cleaning — and indeed it is.

However, when I made the discovery that the finished project is amazingly soft and touchable, I decided to make a few more of them to be used as washcloths. After completing those additional projects, I tested them myself and was delighted to find that they really do make dreamy washcloths too. Hooray!

Pictured at left in the photo above, we have a hand towel with a crocheted edging. My project sample is worked in a delightful lilac color that reminds me of the glorious wisteria flowers that are blossoming all over the place right now.

I’m loving these projects, and I hope some of you will also enjoy making and using these items as well.
