pretty washcloths.....

I recently made some more lovely soft washcloths
it was a very basic pattern using tr (uk terms)
that evolved as I crocheted the first one.

I love that about crochet......
once you learn a few stitches,
and you have tried a variety of patterns your confidence grows
and you feel more at ease to experiment and play :) I hope you can find some time this week to

Experiment & Play

These washcloths are just beautiful. You have inspired me to maybe give experimenting a go. xo

Hi Gillian
I've been meaning to try making washcloths for ages. What yarn have you used? I saw a bamboo cotton mix recently and wondered if that would be suitable (for face/body as opposed to dish washcloths!).

Happy new year,Fiona xx

I love crochet for that - learning just a little bit gives you lots of scope to experiment. These are just too pretty to be washcloths :)
Happy New Year!

Thank you all so much for your lovely comments xxx

Fiona, I used a cotton blend for these washcloths, I have used the bamboo/cotton mix for others and it works up super soft and lovely :)

these are all lovely Gillian! I have used this type in the past (gifts from other crochet friends) and they are the best to have in my kitchen. I hope had a Happy New Year and that 2011 is filled with many blessings!
