If you don't like the sugar and cream or peaches and cream (both are same type of cotton yarn) you can use size 10 or larger crochet cotton they have size 5 and 3 out now in those balls. I like to use 2 strands of size 10 crochet cotton for my dishcloths the other yarn is just too thick for my liking. Dishcloths are good for learning a new stitch pattern and to make sure it's square if that's what you prefer just fold up in a triangle and when the corners and sides match perfectly it's square.
My favorite pattern for dishcloths is using a J hook, 2 strands of size 10 cotton thread
Chain an odd number of chains (I usually chain 30 but you can make as wide as you like just make sure it's an odd number of chains)
Single crochet in 2nd chain from hook
Double crochet in next chain, single crochet in next chain across to last stitch, double crochet in last chain.

Chain 1 to turn and single crochet in the double crochets and double crochet in the single crochets across.

Trisha,
I just LOVE my dish cloths made out of Sugar and Cream. But mine are knitted. Is that REALLY a picture of a dish cloth. Oh, dear, I may have to take up crocheting! I haven't knit or crocheted in 35 years.

I have been working on this Felted Crochet Hook Holder today...I am doing mine in Green with an off white center to go with my needlework bag. I have the body crocheted, I just need to get it in the wash, and I am almost done with the shell strip for holding the hooks. I will post a picture of mine when it is all felted and assembled.

Trisha that depends on how you want them to look joined. You can whipstitch them for a flat seam or slip stitch with a hook for a slightly raised look then there's also a way to join them with a lacy look between the squares. Just pick whichever you think will look good with the squares. If you can't decide just do a couple together to see how it looks.

i want to try this one next. its not mine, I found it on the net.

Free Crochet Pattern: Nubby Dishcloth

The great texture in this dishcloth is achieved by alternating single crochet and
treble crochet stitches.
Skill level: easy
Stitches used: chain stitch (ch), single crochet (sc), treble crochet (tr).
Gauge: not important for this project. My finished cloth is about 7 ½” square.
Materials:
• I used a 4mm/size G6 hook.
• 1 ball (1½ oz) worsted weight cotton. I used Bernat Handicrafter Cotton
Ultrasoft, Violet Veil Ombre.

Pattern:
Row 1: Ch 26. Sc in 2nd ch from hook and across. (25)
Row 2: Ch 1, turn. * Sc in first st, tr in next. Repeat from * across, ending with sc.
Row 3: Ch 3, turn. * Sc in tr; tr in next sc. Repeat from * across, ending with tr.
Row 4: Ch 1, turn. * Sc in tr; tr in next sc. Repeat from * across, ending with a sc in
top of starting ch 3 of previous row.
Rows 5 to 23: Repeat rows 3 and 4, ending with a row 3. Do not fasten off.
Edging: Ch 1, turn. * Sc across to next corner; 3 sc in last st. Repeat from * around,
ending with sl st into first sc. Fasten off and weave ends in.

My next house will have no kitchen - just vending machines and a large trash can.

That's really cute Trisha. Dishclothe? I made one from the pattern nanniepb put up on the other thread. Had it made in about 2 hrs. busy in betwwen rows LOL otherwise could have had it done in about 20 mins. LOL Going to try one of the other ones that have been put up. Wish my little camera was working I would take a pic and post it.
Hey have any of you gals tried working with the sari recycled silk yarns? I bought some and know nothing about it.

I set down just a bit ago and made another one. So simple to make.
Does anyone have a pattern for hot pads made from the sugar and cream. I have some but they are made from regular yarn and I am just a bit afraid of those as if you set anything real hot on them they might melt. I would hate like heck to ruin a pan or dish with melted yarn on it. :))))))

If you have the regular pattern just substitute the cotton for the acrylic yarn, it should work just fine....I have made summer afghans substituting Sugar and Cream for the regular yarn.
