The book cover of Learn to Crochet African Flower Motifs by Candi Jenson and Heather Vantress caught my eye. I fell in love with the colors and I knew at that moment that I had to get it and I had to crochet things in it. The first project of many is a flower dishcloth. I used Lily’s Sugar n’ Cream. This is one of my favorite cotton yarns and perfect for dishcloths. You don’t want to use mercerized cotton because it has a coating that doesn't absorb water. That is what you want a worsted weight cotton like Lily’s yarn.
Since it is Spring I chose bright colors. The orange is called tangerine but looks more like the color salmon, hot pink, and white. I found the pattern to be quite a simple pattern. As soon as a find an aqua that I like I am going to do the scarf on the front if I have enough patience or make more dishcloths with that pattern. It took me about two hours to do in almost one sitting had to take a quick break on the last round to take my pup outside.
