Lacy Snowflake Dishcloth: Yarn & Color Recommendations

Updated: Jul 2, 2021

The Lacy Snowflake Dishcloth knitting pattern by Snickerdoodle Knits (that's me!) is now available for your knitting pleasure! This simple dishcloth creates a quick, fun project that provides a cozy (and practical!) wintry piece of decor for your kitchen. Learn more and get the links to purchase the pattern here, or have the free PDF sent to your email.

The yarn that I used for the initial sample (which was the blue and cream) is Elmore-Pisgah Peaches & Creme, which is no longer in production. The second sample (the white dishcloth) was made using Peaches & Cream, which is the newer version of the first yarn. This is a 100% cotton worsted weight yarn. Really, any of the colors would work well with the Lacy Snowflake Dishcloth pattern, but in this post I'll share a few colors that I would love to use, as well as recommend some other cotton yarns that would also work well with this pattern!

Color Suggestions

The multi-colored sample (shown above) used the color Shaded Denim, and the second sample used White. Click any of the photos below to view that color on Walmart's website.

Yarn Recommendations

In this section I've included only 100% cotton yarn. I've organized these yarn recommendations from cheapest to most expensive, per gram.

Note: I am not affiliated with any of the yarns that I suggest; I am only providing a reference of suggestions for the knitters who wish to knit my pattern. All photos are from the websites I have linked in this post. All prices are listed in USD and do not include shipping.
