What are the typical sizes for cloths?

I've made two already: one is 7x11" and the other is 7x7".


The one pattern I use often ( for myself) generally comes out about 7"x7".
My mum likes larger dishcloths. The pattern I make for her is closer to a 10"x10".
So I would say you're in the average range Wink

I picked out the three I am going to make. Two are patterns I never tried before. The third will be my tried and true pattern.

Mine are almost ready to go in the mail- I just need to take a picture and find an envelope. I used 3 patterns that I had never done before, but they weren't complex. They made nice dishcloths, however Wink

I'm counting them towards my total for the 50+ Crochet Dishcloth Along and I'm trying not to repeat any of the patterns for my 50. I've been taking notes about each pattern as I go, and all 3 of these could be ones that I'd make again (once I reach my goal of 50 different ones).

I have my three done, unless I change my mind.  I did make a scrubbie.. and it is out of acrylic yarn.. I have never made any dishcloths out of acrylic, always cotton..
Any thoughts from those that use them, how do they do versus cotton ones? Huh

I use both cotton and acryl ones and in use I don't see much difference, they're both great. Only the acryl ones dry quicker.

I meant to mail today, but didn't. When I got up this morning, I did remember to put out the trash and recycling (usually, I don't leave myself enough time to do it), and take $$ so I could get my car inspected. I just got home and saw the envelope, but I'm too wiped out (my plans for the morning didn't go as expected, so I had to scramble to get something ready a day earlier than I was planning).

I can't get to the PO until Thursday, but they'll definitely be in the mail by Thursday.

And, LindaP, I made a washcloth out of chenille yarn, and it was acrylic chenille. But, I gave it as a gift, so I don't know how well it worked. It seemed like it would work just fine, and an acrylic dishcloth/scrubbie probably would, too. I wouldn't make an acrylic dish towel because a dishcloth would probably be fine (but I'd love to know if anyone has actually tested it out Wink ).
