NatCroMo 2016


Welcome to Day 6 of the NatCroMo Designer Blog Tour! 


Joining me for the Day 6 blog tour stops is crochet designer Esther Chandler. Please visit her Web site to see what exciting things she has to offer.

Diagonal Mesh DishclothMy contribution to the Designer Blog tour this year is my corner-to-corner Diagonal Mesh Dishcloth, which will remain free through March 31st (see update, below). It is crocheted with size 4 cotton yarn and a size H/8/5mm crochet hook, but the single crochet and chain-one mesh allows for more movement and less bulk than some crochet dishcloth patterns.

I prefer a large dishcloth, but I know some people like one slightly smaller. So, to give you a choice, I’ve designed this one in two sizes. I’m particularly drawn to corner-to-corner patterns for projects like this because I can stop at any point to get the size that is just right for me or to adjust for the amount of yarn I have on hand.

Many thanks to Amy Shelton and Donna Hulka of Crochetville for the opportunity to once again participate in this exciting event. I hope you enjoy crocheting my Diagonal Mesh Dishcloth. Be sure to stay aboard the Crochet Express to catch the rest of NatCroMo 2016. There are a lot more stops along the way!
