Mesh Dishcloth Crochet Pattern

Crochet a mesh dishcloth out of a produce bag! You don't need to throw away the bag your oranges came in, and you don't need to go out and buy yarn for your next project, either. This easy crochet dishcloth pattern works up quickly because of the thick mesh, and it'll work wonders scrubbing pots and pans! All you need to do is cut the produce bag into a long strip and use that as your "yarn". If you've worked up any plarn patterns in your time, you'll be familiar with working with a slightly tricky substance. The results are so worth it. These dishcloths make excellent gifts, work up so fast, and cost you nothing. Recycle those produce bags for a great purpose with this pattern.

haven't made it yet but will be making several.

Seriously, who comes up with such creative and inventive things to crochet with stuff you already have lying around the house?! I have heard of using plastic grocery bags as "plarn" for rag rugs and tote bags, but using an orange mesh bag is the most creative. Talks about using every last bit of something and not letting anything go to waste!
