Summer in the Sun Dishcloth Knitting Pattern Yarn Recommendations

The free Summer in the Sun Dishcloth knitting pattern by Snickerdoodle Knits (that's me!) is now available for your knitting pleasure! This simple dishcloth uses simple lace techniques to create a quick, fun summer knitting project that provides bright, cheery vibes for your kitchen year-round. 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 pattern samples is Lily Sugar 'n Cream in Yellow. This is a 100% cotton worsted weight yarn. Any solid color yarn would look great with this pattern. I highly recommend picking your favorite color to maximize the cheerful aspect of the dishcloth 😄 You can check out projects other knitters have created on Ravelry here.



You could also use a multi-color yarn, but you won't see the sun motif as well. It would have a look similar to my blue and white Lacy Snowflake Dishcloth.




Color Suggestions

Here are a few colors that I think would look great, but I honestly think just about anything would work well! Is there one that speaks to you? Click any of the photos below to view the yarn on Michael's website.
