Crocheted T-Shirt Yarn Dishcloth
This crocheted t-shirt dishcloth idea was posted a couple of weeks ago, but I didn’t have the pattern written up at that time. Yay, me! I have finally finished it!
It is really very, very simple (blush), but simple is good when life gets busy and complicated.
Things You Will Need:
One adult t-shirt
Crochet hook, size N
ch = chain
sc = single crochet
Preparing the T-Shirt Yarn:
Lay a large adult-size t-shirt on your work surface. Cut off the hem. Cut across the body of the shirt just below the sleeves. The body is now a tube that should produce enough yarn for one dishcloth. If the t-shirt body is not enough for one dishcloth, cut and add smaller strips from the yoke and sleeves of the shirt.
Crocheting the Dishcloth:
Sc in the second chain from the hook and in each of the remaining chains. (20 sc)
Tips and Ideas:
Stretch and block the dishcloth as you crochet each row, as well as when the dishcloth is complete.
T-shirts with no pictures or design graphics are recommended for t-shirt yarn. Use two or more t-shirts in differing colors to crochet a dishcloth with stripes.
Crochet two dishcloths and present them as gifts. Fold each dishcloth and stack them together. Cut a 36-inch length of ribbon or lace. Wrap the ribbon or lace length around the stack and tie it in a bow on top. Trim the ends as desired.
