    I love that textured dishcloth. I made myself a placemat that looks similar and I use it every day for breakfast. Nice way to start the day – its so cheerful. xoxox

    Love these dishcloths! I’ve made the Crunchy and Textured and they turned out great…nice and easy too. Can’t wait to do Seeing Squares and Three-Color now! Thanks so much for sharing these patterns for free!

      I used Knit Picks Simply Cotton Worsted and so far it washes beautifully. Unfortunately I bought it on clearance and I don’t think they have it anymore. I really love it too 🙁 But I have had good luck with Lion Brand’s Kitchen Cotton and Sugar ‘n Cream too. Hope that helps 🙂

    I happily discovered your site through Pinterest and I am so glad I did. I have enjoyed looking through the older posts and projects. I tried the Textured dishcloth yesterday and love the result. I can’t wait to try the other dishcloths as well. Thanks so much for the inspiration.
    Blessings to you.

    They are all so pretty! I love each of them and can’t wait to try them out! I finished the Crunchy one now I need to find time to do the rest. 😉

    I found you through Pinterest also, and I’m so happy I did! How many stitches did you use for the magic ring for this dishcloth? Thanks for the wonderful pattern!

    Thanks so much for your crochet dishcloth patterns – this is the second one I am making (I finished the textured dishcloth last night) – they are just lovely, a beautiful addition to my kitchen!

    • Kara August 3, 2014 at 10:21 pm #

      I am so happy to hear that you are enjoying them!

    He! I’m trying yo do the Seeing Squares. Starting in Round 3 you have (5) 3 sc groupings. I have a pentagon instead of a square. Can you help me with this?

    • Kara September 22, 2014 at 8:22 pm #

      Hi Melissa 🙂 You are correct, the repeats after the asterisk should only be done twice more instead of three more times. I updated the pattern accordingly. Thanks so much for letting me know!

    Finished the textured one yesterday. Love it. Would you say for different sized projects that I could chain multiples of 2 + 1?

    Also working on Seeing Squares. Had to turn & work in the other direction after several rounds. I’m a tight crocheter & projects like this tend to go slightly askew. But I do love the pattern.

    • Kara November 6, 2014 at 12:40 pm #

      So glad you are enjoying them! Yes, I do believe the 2+1 multiple would work for increasing the textured pattern 🙂

    My seeing square ones end up not being as square as yours and have a round shape. I have pulled it out time and time again but still can’t seem to see what I am doing wrong. Any tips?

    • Kara April 21, 2015 at 9:22 pm #

      Hmmm … what shape is it coming out?

  13. mick May 6, 2015 at 9:29 am #

    My seeing squares ends up askew – I have also taken it out several times and can’t seem to get it . . . any ideas? I can send a pic somehow. I have done the others, though, with great success!
