Crochet doilys have been around forever! I hate to admit, when I think of doily I just think of an item to place on the back of the chair, arm rest or just on a table for decoration purposes. These are great as dishcloths but I would hate to soil them.

OMG! I got all excited for nothing. I do not know how to knit! My first cousin is the knitter so I will forward this link to her and I hope I can get her to make it for me.

My partner and I have a camper van and when we are driving the dishes in the presses make an awful clattering noise, Im still shocked we havent broken and of them yet but I think if I make some of these doily dishcloths and put them between the plates this might help the clattering noise

I've made this pattern before, too, and used it for a doily under a plant. It's very pretty and with a little thought, it can be made quite a bit bigger. I even thought about making it big enough for a small table cover, but never did it. It would make an awesome dishcloth!

I've made this pattern before. Two or three of these dishcloths bundled together with a nice bottle of dish soap make a great housewarming or holiday gift.

These are so cute! I love Bernat Blanket and Baby yarns, but I did not know they made cotton yarn. I will have to look for it. I had been using Lily Sugar N Cream, but it's always nice to have more choice!
