I have a great friend who loves Disney. She placed an Etsy order with me for some of my Farmhouse Dishcloths about a week ago and we’re planning to get together for the delivery. This week, she seemed to need a little pick-me-up so I decided to design a special washcloth set as a little surprise “bonus” for her delivery. This free Mickey Mouse crochet pattern is what I was dreamt up for her special delivery. I also published a free Minnie Mouse washcloth design if you would like to make a set. Hope you like it as much as she loves Disney World!
This wash cloth is the perfect way to practice the Lemon Peel fabric (sc, dc repeats), tapestry (carry along the main yarn, and intarsia (switching yarn color to make a shape or pattern).

Lemon peel fabric: Using SC and DC repeated across every row including the color change rows creates a textured crochet fabric that looks the same and looks lovely on both sides. It’s my absolute favorite crochet fabric.
Instead of using simple sc in every row like many intarsia patterns, the rows are a bit taller and I’ve adjusted my charts to allow for the slight difference so the shape isn’t distorted.

If you are a big Disney fan, know someone doing a Disney baby room, I think you should check out my Disney Mickey Mouse crochet baby blanket, too! This blanket was also designed by special request for my Disney-loving friend for a very special baby.
Stay creative and keep creating,
