My Lovely Heart Dishcloth pattern is a simple heart dishcloth that I released in celebration of Valentine’s Day. You may find the free pattern on the blog here, purchase the pattern on Ravelry, Payhip, or LoveCrafts, or have the free PDF sent to your email.
The yarn that I used for my Lovely Heart Dishcloth samples is Lily Sugar 'n Cream solids and Lily Sugar 'n Cream ombre. This is a 100% cotton worsted weight yarn. Really, any of the colors would work well with the Lovely Heart 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!
Solids: Teal, Sage, Hot Purple, Hot Pink, Hot Blue
Ombre: Moondance, Potpourri, Mistletoe Green, Ahoy, Fruit Punch
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.
