Solid Yarn Colors Versus Changing the Color
The colors of this yarn were so vibrant that I chose to use just one color for each washcloth. However, this would also work up well using a variegated yarn or changing color throughout the rounds in the crochet pattern.
Recently, my daughter and her husband moved into a new house on our farm. Therefore, I just had to crochet a few of these in fall colors for them. The photos were taken on their large farmhouse dining room table.
Today, I used Lion Brand 24/7 Cotton yarn in the following shades Golden Rod, Amber, Tangerine, and Café Au Lait. Each skin is 186 yards, and I was able to crochet two washcloths from each skein.
Seamless Granny Square
This square is not just any square. It is a solid granny square. However, I think it is a unique and special pattern. Why?
Because this solid granny square does not have any visible seams on the sides! For me, it is a game changer in how nice this looks.

How do you crochet a farmhouse dishcloth?
Often crochet dishcloths are worked in rows; however, this one is worked in rounds as a square. If you are familiar with a solid granny square, you can make this pattern. However, as I previously mentioned, this granny square is distinctive because there are no visible seams!
Let’s dig into the crochet pattern.

Round 5 there will be 15 DC STs to work on each side, and so on.
Finish by weaving in yarn ends and removing the excess yarn.
