Dishcloth Mania

My preferred handwork for the drive to and from Texas is either crocheting dishcloths or binding small quilts. Since I didn’t have the binding attached to the quilts for the drive out, I started working on some dishcloths. That got the crochet urge going again after being dormant for several months, so I’ve gotten more dishcloths done while we’ve been here.

Here are the ones I’ve finished so far. These will most likely end up as gifts or for charity. Either way I just enjoy making them and using up some of my dishcloth yarn stash.  I still need to finish off the ends, but I'll do that step for all of them in one sitting.  It's not my favorite thing to do, so I'll wait until I am watching a good movie to make it tolerable.

I knit wash clothes on car trips. Do you have instructions for the crocheted version. They are so pretty!
