this sounds like fun. i'm waiting for feedback on my first swap right now.

two questions:

what kind of yarn do you use for a dishcloth??

what about a "scrubbie"?? i found a pattern for one of those a few nights ago and it seems pretty cool and a fast knit

I usually use "Peaches and Cream" or "Sugar and Cream" brands of cotton. It's inexpensive, they sell it everywhere, and it comes in a ton of colors. I read somewhere that Bernat's "Cotton Tots" brand works great also. I picked some up on sale recently, but haven't tried it yet.

I recently picked up some cotton tots too thinking to myself it seemed totally suitable for washcloths. I also recently found a bunch of Debbie Bliss cotton on clearance at my LYS. It still ended up being about 3.50 - 4.00  a skein though - a lot more expensive than Peaches & Cream at Wally World for 1.29 each or Sugar & Cream for about 1.50 each at Michaels. Joanns sells the larger size Sugar & Cream for 1.99.Im not sure if you can get 2 washclothes out of that or not cause I havent tried it yet. Anybody any experience with that size? Despite the price difference the plus side was the color selection of the Debbie Bliss. They have so many beautiful colors! :-)
If you are going to do a design/pattern in your washcloth though (which Im sure most of us will)- only use solid colosr- not the variated or you wont be able to see the design too well.
I will post this swap tomorrow on the Swap board since we have so much interest. It should prove to be a blast!

i'm going to be 100% honest with you. there are quite a lot of patterns out there. it would take me quite some time to list them all...so i'll show you HOW i found them so you can see what you like.

i google imaged "dishcloth and scrubbie pattern" so i can see what they look like. i found lots this way.

i then just googled "discloth and scrubbie pattern". the very first site that comes up has a really good and long list of free patterns (crochet and knit). dishandwashclothmania.com... i think was the site.

they're quick and easy. i liked that a few state to use acrylic yarn because they're more "abbrasive". this will help is slashing my yucky acrylic yarn stash.

oh, this is perfect & you are wonderful! i had been wondering how to find them, but i had no idea what they were called (or that they would ever be called anything that made as much sense as "scrubbie").  thank you!!!
