Square Hillbilly DishclothHere is a quick, easy and fun pattern that you can use to create with your newly made scrap yarn. I have made many of these for myself and friends. Every time I use them, I think how cool it is that it is made with what otherwise would have been just scraps for the garbage. This is something truly free that you can use everyday.


Another thing I like about this project is that you don't have to weave in ANY ends. The knotted bits sticking out simply give it more character. :)

Total Time: 30 minutes

Yield: as many as desired
