Crocheted Cotton Washcloths

If you're looking for a great crochet project for summer time, cotton washcloths are just the thing! They are quick and easy, and small enough to finish before they can heat up your lap like a big afghan does!

I've been crocheting some myself lately, and even picked up a nice variety of crochet cotton recently to work up six or eight different color coordinated bundles to put in my etsy shop. I may even save one out and have a giveaway since I haven't done that in quite a while!

Here's my first bundle...


Ooooh, pretty pastels!


Each washcloth is approximately 10 inches square with a pretty little border crocheted around the edge.


Wouldn't this make a lovely hostess, bridal shower, housewarming, birthday, just-because gift for someone?


Such fresh summery colors to brighten up your kitchen or bathroom.


And just look at all that scrubby texture! Fabulous!

If you're interested in making these yourself, grab some crochet cotton (one takes about 2 ounces) and work your beginning chain at about 40. Then use the woven stitch or any other crochet stitch you like that does not make holes in the fabric, and start crocheting! Once it is square, do a single crochet border around the edge and then a simple decorative border and you're done!

But if you don't feel like making them yourself, check out my Etsy shop and order up a bundle from there. I'll be making more bundles in a variety of colors over the summer, so check back often or email me for a custom order.

Happy Stitching!
