Summer time calls for cotton projects!. I love working with this comfy cotton blend yarn from lion brand lately because I love how smooth the yarn is and how it glides through my hook!. In this post I will show you how to make this dishcloth made using waffle stitch!. It will also be a walkthrough for waffle stitch if you have not worked with this stitch already!
This entire project will approximately require less than 100yds so it’s a amazing stash buster project.
