The Humble Washcloth

People swear by these for washing their dishes.  I would argue that they are also great for face and body.  This simple yet pretty washcloth can be whipped up in not much more than an hour, depending on your skill level.

Besides being easy to make and useful, these washcloths also make great homemade gifts.  Add them to a spa or kitchen-themed gift basket for a homemade touch.



1 skein worsted weight cotton yarn.  I used Sugar 'n Cream light blue
size I hook

Chain 34.  Double crochet in the third chain from hook.  Continue to end of row.
Chain 2.  Double crochet to end of row, turn and repeat.
Finish with a single crochet border

One skein of cotton yarn should yield two washcloths this size.

This pattern is CRAZY easy.  You can use it to make blankets as well, just chain more to start.  Also, if you want a bigger washcloth, just chain more stitches at the start.
