We are on school holidays here at the moment....
and last weekend we made the long trip up to Brisbane in the car
to help celebrate my Mother in Laws 70th B'day.
7ish hours in the car one way!
Most of my crochet projects are big ones at the moment,
too big to take in the front passenger seat ;)
so I decided we needed some more washcloths.
This was a great car trip project,
as it was small to hold, little concentration needed.
I used Moda Vera Beetle 50% Cotton 50% Acrylic
Holding two strands together & 5mm hook
I love using this yarn,
the mix of 50% Cotton, 50% Acrylic makes it soft and durable
I know with the acrylic in the mix it isn’t quite as absorbent as 100%cotton when dry, but when wet the cloth works really well and keeps its shape beautifully over many, many washes.
The pattern is a free one from Bernat you can find it here
(you will need to sign in to access the pattern, but its a great site if you haven't already used it)
and the Ravelry page is here
Have a great day!
