Hopscotch Square Dish Cloth

New FREE Afghan Square and Dishcloth Pattern!

You know how they say the sum is greater than its parts? Well that’s exactly how I feel about collaborative crochet projects! I think bringing the creativity of many designers together creates an absolutely fantastic combined design. Which is why I was so excited to participate in the Mélange Collaborative Blanket Crochet Along! If you have enjoyed the other blanket CALs over the last few years, then I know you will love the Mélange Afghan CAL just as much! Collaborative projects like this one are so much fun, and I hope y’all enjoy getting to know new designers and try out great new crochet projects as well!

This free afghan square pattern (which also includes instructions to make as a dish cloth too!) is part of a collaborative blanket design project! I am so thrilled for y’all to join myself and all the other talented crochet designers to crochet the Hopscotch Square as part of the Mélange Blanket Crochet Along! Read on to learn more and find my Free Crochet Pattern and learn more about the Crochet Along. I hope y’all love this pattern as much as I do!  💜 Happy hooking!

Hopscotch Crochet Afghan Square!

I love a quick crochet project, how about you? That’s the beauty of these fun squares – even if you’re making a large blanket, you’re really making lots of quick and satisfying projects to assemble at a later date. Ahhh! So satisfying! Better yet, if you would rather start and finish with this one simple project, then you can make your Hopscotch Square as a dish cloth – fun and functional, my fave crochet combo! 🤩

For the wash cloth version, I do recommend using cotton yarn and it makes a great cloth to use for dishes, the bath or as a luxury spa cloth too! The texture of the stitches makes it extra squishy and good at its job. You can make a whole set in your fave colors. These make lovely gifts too, especially when paired with a thoughtful spa item like fancy soap or bath salts. These would make the perfect back to school gift for your child’s teacher, housewarming or wedding shower gift, or a fun stocking stuffer for your teens and young adults too. You would definitely win my heart with a great gift like that! 😉 

Don’t let the fun stop here! If you enjoy Collaborative Blankets, you can check out all the other squares I have designed! Which is your next project? 💜
