Sugar 'N Cream Crochet Dishcloth Patterns

Is Sugar ‘N Cream yarn good for crochet?

First of all, we need to start by answering this important question. YES, sugar ‘n cream yarn is great for crochet projects! It is not great for any type of project, but it IS great for dishcloths.

Sugar ‘N Cream is what I like to think of as a kitchen cotton yarn. It’s not one of those yarns you would use for a large project because it is a bit scratchy and difficult to work with.

BUT, this does not mean you should steer clear of it! Most kitchen cotton yarns are this way, not just Sugar ‘N Cream. They need to be stiff and scratchy so that they’ll hold up well when made into things like dishcloths.

And plus, there are ways you can make your dishcloths softer. We’ll get to this, plus a lot more FAQs about this yarn, at the end of this post. For now, I want to show you the amazing dishcloth patterns!
