If you have any crocheting experience, you’re going to have a great time making the projects in Dishcloths to Crochet. Animals, flowers, and fruits are among the themes of the 25 patterns, which include Sweet Strawberry, Perky Pig, Dandy Daffodil, and other designs. Olski also provides directions to convert any of her designs into potholders with addition of a ring.
The back cover of the book states “Crocheters of all skill levels will delight in these playful patterns for crocheted dishcloths…” I have knitting and needlepoint experience, but I never learned how to crochet and it is my opinion that I would need to gain some basic crocheting technique before I would feel comfortable tackling these projects.
Dishcloths to Crochet is a well-designed tutorial book with full-page full color photos of each project, detailed instructions and straight forward project materials lists. It would make a fine addition to any crocheter’s library and a wonderful gift if you know a crocheter.
