Decorate your kitchen this holiday season with Crochet Christmas Granny Square Dish Cloths. The dish cloths make a perfect gift to give the host of any holiday party. These four festive Christmas granny square dish cloths are inexpensive and can be made in a weekend. The double crochet granny square pattern uses one color of cotton yarn per dish cloth and is finished with a slip stitch edge. For a variation, use multiple colors in each cloth or finish each cloth with a different color edge. I generally make dish cloths a little larger since the cotton yarn may shrink when washed and dried in a dryer. This pattern is adopted from the Granny Square Dish Cloth pattern found in The Best of Lily Dish Cloths.
