Lovely Heart Dishcloth: Yarn & Color Recommendations

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 here, or purchase the pattern on Ravelry, PatternVine, or LoveCrafts.



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!



Color Suggestions

The colors that I used are Red (the solid red color) and Strawberry (the ombre pink and white color). Some other color recommendations that I have are:


Solids: Teal, Sage, Hot Purple, Hot Pink, Hot Blue


Ombre: Moondance, Potpourri, Mistletoe Green, Ahoy, Fruit Punch


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.
