Color Flip Dishcloth, Free Crochet Pattern + Video (Summer of Dishcloths CAL)

The Color Flip Dishcloth is a play on texture and color!  Using contrasting colors and post stitches, the result is ridges on on side that appear to be stitched together like a running stitch in sewing.  On the flip side, there is a classic rugby stripe look…fun!

This dishcloth is part of of Summer of Dishcloths CAL, our 2019 Fiber Flux summer crochet along!  Each week in July & August, I will share a new & free crochet dishcloth pattern + full video tutorial!  Click here for the other patterns in this series, I will update that page as each one goes live to serve as a directory of sorts.  Scroll to the bottom of this post for ways to show off your work and connect with other CAL makers!
