If you are an experience crocheter, this is one of those crochet patterns that can be completed in under an hour. However, if you are new to crochet, this is a wonderful project to expand your crochet skills with a small project.

I remember when I was first starting on my crochet journey. The sense of accomplishment was wonderful when I completed smaller projects. Also, when I noticed my mistakes, there were a lot less stitches to remove and redo.

Here are my YouTube videos for many crochet stitches. You can also find a number of the written directions for crochet stitches on my site too.

Cotton Yarn

I had purchased a number of skeins of cotton yarn in a variety of colors a few months ago and added them to my yarn stash. It was finally time to get moving and use the yarn. As long as I don’t let my stash get too big, my husband has nothing to complain about.

Cotton yarn is so absorbent and gets softer with each washing.

If you are like me and love the look of this washcloth, then you just might like the soap bag pattern that can be paired with this. Take a look at how pretty they look together and when they are made in a variety of colors, even better.

I made quite a few of these SPA sets for a friend of mine that was having a baby shower. They were gift sets that were given to the game winners. If you are like me and love receiving a handmade gift, consider making a SPA set for your friends and family. I bet they will love them.

Optional Crochet Borders

As you can see from the photos, some of the washcloths have no border, some have a ruffle on one edge or both edges, and one has a single crochet all the way around. Here are the directions to the borders.

Single Crochet Border:

Work around the border of the cloth evenly in single crochet.  Make sure that you do 3 SC in each corner of the border.  When you have completed one round, join to first SC with a slip stitch.  Fasten off and weave in the ends.
