This Crochet Sunflower Dishcloth Scrubber is so easy and fun to crochet. The center of the sunflower uses adorable mini popcorn stitches. The flower petals are easy to crochet too. Using dishcloth cotton yarn, and all of those petals make this thirsty dishcloth the perfect thing to clean your dishes. Using Red Heart Scrubby Sparkle yarn to make the back of the sunflower creates the perfect combination. You have thirsty cotton yarn for cleaning and scrubby yarn for scrubbing the tough stuff. The free crochet pattern can be found below. If you would like an ad free pdf, purchase it at RAVELRY or over at ETSY
I sometimes use affiliate links in my posts. This won’t cost you anything, but will help offset the cost of yarn and other supplies needed, so that I can continue bringing you crochet patterns and craft ideas. Thank you so much for your support.

The Sunflower Dishcloth Scrubber will look so sweet hanging in your kitchen.
After you are finished with the dishes hang it around the spigot or water handle, to let it dry. Won’t that be so cute in your kitchen? Check out the Sunflower Hot Pad and the Sunflower Coaster crochet patterns. I also designed a Sunflower Sachet and a Sunflower Towel Topper. They are fast to crochet and you can have a coordinating set for your kitchen, or for gift giving.
