New free crochet pattern just in time for Valentine’s Day! This Heart Dishcloth or Spa Cloth is a great gift idea. I decided to make up spa gift baskets for my girls filled with bath bombs, chocolates , face masks and body wash. Adding some handmade spa cloths and face scrubbies just add that personal touch. I also made the baskets and you’ll be getting that pattern and the scrubbies for Free soon! I’ll link as soon as they’re ready.
I received these beautiful little balls of Dishcloth Cotton from Mary Maxim. They have so many great colours to choose from go check them all out HERE. For this project you will need 2 balls and you’ll get 2 dishcloths in reverse colour as shown.

To add some texture and scrubbing ability to your dishcloth / spa cloth try using Bernat Handicrafter Scrub off by Yarnspirations! While running into Walmart for an errand I spotted this yarn and instantly had to have it! It was the perfect yarn to make face scrubbies. I decided to whip up a dishcloth for my mom and add it to her Birthday gift.
I hope you enjoy this Heart Dishcloth Pattern. For more designs by MJ’s Off The Hook Designs see
