Crocheting a Spiral Dishcloth

I crocheted the Spiral pattern from Dishcloths.

I really want to call it the Pinwheel Pattern.  I even typed it in this post a few times and had to go back and fix it.

Maybe it's because I'm getting the 4th of July on the brain and I love those little pinwheel firecrackers (you know the ones.  They make a little ZZZzzzzt! sound while they spin and fire off sparks that probably hit your legs), or because I just like pinwheel-y designs.  But I really like the spiraling pattern of this dishcloth.  I want to make it with different colors so it looks like a kid's toy.  Or maybe with variegated or self-striping yarn so it will look like a lollipop.  

Or maybe I could just make a whole bunch of these just because they're quick and easy and cute.

This took about 30 or 40 minutes, and I barely had to follow the pattern once I got the hang of things.  It would be an excellent beginner project for someone who was new to working in the round, or just new to crocheting in general.  It's simple, but it's not boring.  Plus, 60ish yards of cotton yarn and a mere 9 rows to work?  Yes, please!  You can't really tell in the pictures, but the dishcloth is 9" or 10" in diameter.  So that's a pretty good-sized dishcloth for not too much effort!

This was a quick and fun project, and I'm looking forward to making a few more of these. 

In fact, maybe I already did.

Fine, I absolutely did.

Stay tuned!

    I just have to ask...could you make those a little smaller, maybe in seasonal colors, to be used for coasters? Or would they be too thick for that? In the picture they look thin enough.

      I'm not sure. I just sat a glass of water on one and it didn't seem too wobbly. Maybe? I'll have you try it out the next time I see you. It should probably work well with a sweaty glass.
