Fire Crochet Dishcloth

free pattern Add some dimension to the kitchen with this Fire Crochet Dishcloth. I saw a commercial for the new Hunger Games movie this November, and I just had to make something in honor of it. This uses Lily Cotton Yarn, so it will be very absorbent. Because of the raised up “arrows” that lead up to each corner, this crochet dishcloth is sure to catch fire to all stains and dirt in its path! (note: This is a common type of design. This is simply my version of an amazing type of crochet, and is not an “original” crochet stitch that I created). Final dimensions of project are approximately 8″x8″.
