With my kitchen recently renovated I felt a handmade touch was necessary to finish it off!  I was looking for a design with texture and a pop of colour.  I found the perfect shades of Bernat handicrafter in Salt & Pepper and Sky that suited my kitchen perfectly.

I’m sure there are thousands of dishcloth patterns out there but I like to wing it and come up with my own thing!  I had debated about doing multi colour borders but I loved this shade of sky so much I made all my cloths in this colour.  I would suggest picking colours that match your taste and style.

I made our rustic farmhouse dishcloth nice and big but you can customize them to any size by altering your starting chain.

For display or gifting I’ve included a folding tutorial and added some twine for a rustic feel.  I live in a farmhouse after all and rustic is my thing.
