Crochet Spring Flower Dishcloth

I found this variegated cotton yarn on clearance and thought I'd make something for Easter with it, but um, Easter was kinda early this year... So I went with a spring theme instead:@) My dishcloth is loosely based upon this Flower Dishcloth free pattern from Lily HERE. This is the first time I've done the front post double crochet (FPDC) and that was fun! I love the cables it made to define the petals.
Don't know how I do it folks, but the pattern calls for eight petals, my flower has... seven
If you're looking to make something cute for spring/summer this is a nice project that even a beginner
(that can't follow directions very well:@) could whip up within a couple hours.

Have a happy day!

  2. I use crocheted dish clothes all the time. I just think it is fun to use these pretty cotton doilies. Yours is very springy.

  3. I laughed with you about the seven petals. That would be what would happen to me. Even with one petal short, I like it!

  7. Great colors and a pretty pattern!

    I like the FPDC too. I'm using it and the BPDC (back post double crochet) to make a gorgeous baby blanket. Combined, they create a basket weave look. I love it! (I'll post pics about it one day, lol!)

  18. It turned out pretty, no matter how many petals it was suppose to have! My former neighbor from FL made me a crocheted dishcloth & it is STILL my very most favorite. I think of her every time I get it out.

    I must go back & check out your pineapple glaze I saw a few seconds ago. Looks YUMMO!

  19. This is so cute, Lynn, and I think it looks just fine with seven petals. I love the yellow center and the variegated yarn. You're doing great teaching yourself to crochet. I cut out my first pattern tonight for sewing class and threaded the machine. I'm definitely going to have to practice threading several times before I feel like I've got the hang of it.

    Have a wonderful week!
