Earth day is an annual event on April 22 to demonstrate support for environmental protection. If you are interested in how Earth day is celebrated on, and all Earth day activities here you can find all the information.
For this year’s Earth Day kids can learn to crochet their first item. It can be a dishcloth or just a few stitches, just to see how great is to crochet!
I think the best dishcloth for washing dishes is the crocheted ones because they last longer, hold water better and it’s more sustainable and eco-friendly. And of course, it’s a good reason to buy more yarn because we always need more dishcloths for ourselves or for a friend so if a few hundred skeins of yarn appear like magic in the closet are for dishcloths!
For my crochet dish washcloth, I’ve used almost 50 g of this 100% cotton yarn (50g= 170m/ 1.76oz= 185 yards) and a 3 mm hook.
This yarn is made from 100% combed Turkish cotton, which is soft, flexible, and exceptionally durable. Textiles in Turkish cotton stay beautiful for many years and only get softer with use. This yarn also excels when it comes to its absorbing powers, but is quick-drying at the same time.
The color chart includes plenty of gorgeous colors, you just have to decide what color you like and get started. Here you can buy this yarn: Pure cotton fine green.

The final dimensions are 26 cm x 24 cm (10.2 inches x 9.4 inches).
The pattern uses US crochet terminology.

Tie off and weave in the ends. Watch the video tutorial to see exactly how I’ve crocheted the edge.
How to crochet the herringbone half double crochet stitch:
For this stitch, you can start with any number of chains.
Crochet a herringbone half double crochet stitch starting with 3rd chain from the hook: yarn over, insert hook in 3rd chain, yarn over and pull the yarn through the chain and first loop on the hook; yarn over and draw the yarn through both loops on hook- this is the first stitch.

If you’ve made this Earth Day chevron crochet dishcloth for sale or as a gift I recommend washing the clothes by hand or on the washing machine at a maximum of 40 Celsius degrees; I prefer 20 Celsius degrees for all my cotton items. Dry it flat and then iron it choosing the temperature for cotton. The dishcloth will smell and look better.
