The Spring Lavender Dish Cloth pattern was a must for me. I needed more dish cloths. When you are forced to wash all your dishes by hand, you need plenty of dish cloths. I am no exception to this rule.

If you’ve been following my blog, you know that about a month ago, I moved. We are so incredibly happy with the move, but there is one this that is driving me crazy: hard water. It’s just plain terrible!

Anyone who’s dealt with hard water knows how rough it can be on your hands. Especially if you’re a mother of two kids 2 and under who need to be wiped and cleaned up after all the time. This causes you to wash your hands about 5,603 times a day. My hands became so dry, they started breaking open! It was awful!

Well, I’ve made some adjustments to how I deal with things. I now wear gloves whenever I wash dishes and clean up food that has been thrown on the ground or all over the table. This has helped immensely!

Now, because of this terribly hard water, my dishwasher is basically useless. It is flat out impossible to get anything clean! So, I wash all dishes by hand. I really don’t mind it. In fact, it is very therapeutic for me to do dishes, because it gets me to stop focusing so much on everything I can’t control and focus on what I’m doing.

So, since I only had about 6 dish cloths, I decided it was time to make more. And I’m happy to share this super pretty and very simple dish cloth pattern with you! You only need to know two basic stitches: single and double crochet. Those are usually the first 2 stitches a person learns, too, so it should be easy, right?

The stitch that is used in the Spring Lavender Dish Cloth is called the Lemon Peel stitch. It is alternating between single and double crochet: first stitch will be single crochet, next stitch will be double crochet, and it will continue with that pattern. Very simple, but it gives this incredibly beautiful pattern. I just love it! Enjoy!
