Crochet Dishcloth Christmas Tag!

Great use for un-used crochet afghan squares: package them as dishcloths! | The Inspired Wren

Oh dear. You started the Crochet Along Afghan and only got a few squares done. Now what do you do with them?! Make them into Christmas-gift Dishcloths -- that IS what you meant to do all along, right?

This is a quick and easy gift to put together even if you don't already have some afghan-less squares waiting around. Pick a nine-inch square or two from the Afghan Sampler -- they hook up quickly -- and then package it as a dishcloth with this free printable rhyming gift tag!
