The Most Patriotic Dishcloth


With The Most Patriotic Dishcloths, you can have kitchenware that you will use for years. Since each color is separate, they dont become irrelevant after Independence Day, and you can keep them around the use to use year-round. They look so fantastic as a set, Uncle Sam might be jealous of you. Bring them to your 4th of July barbecue, or cook your family a nice dinner on Americas birthday with them. Easy knit dishcloths these simple and sweet are hard to come by, so make sure to finish them up before the fourth!

Very nice. I read the directions and they are very easy. It's so well written it will be easy to follow. I may make them for different times of the year. I can see orange, gold and brown for Fall. Green, red and white for Christmas. And pastels for Spring. It will suit every season.

I like dish cloths like this one that go beyond the usual square design. I really like the hanging loop at the top and the button - very practical and it looks great too. No doubt you could make these in almost any solid color, to match your decor, and they would look nice.
