the holidays coming up in just 3 weeks it's a good time to get going on all
those little last minute gifts for all the people you come in contact with regularly.
I've been trying to think of little homemade gifts for people and one thing I thought
of was making some cute little hand-crocheted or knit kitchen sets.
I've started out with this ruffled washcloth which I made using crochet. I used
bernat slipper yarn because of it's rough texture. Crocheting in
a back loop-front loop pattern gives this cloth a cute look. I'm planning on doing
2 different washcloth designs and a dishcloth similar to this one to go with it.
Here's the pattern for this first cloth. I'll post the rest I do as they get done.
I'd love to see what you did with this pattern! Send it to me and I'll post it here with a link to your page if you like
Crochet Hook Size H/8
Any yarn will do - even scrap yarn you have lying around
1) Chain 21
2) Single crochet in second chain from hook and each chain across.
3) Turn, chain 1. *Single crochet in first single crochet, then single crochet in
back-loop of next single crochet.* Repeat from * to * to end of row.
4) Chain 1, turn. Repeat row 3 until cloth is desired length.
5) To add ruffles: double crochet 4 times in each single crochet all around each edge.
6) Fasten off.
Embroidery on the cloth could be nice too but keep in mind it's a
washcloth and will probably be used for scrubbing!
Or use a soft yarn for a facecloth. With some soaps and candles that
could be nice too!
