I have a ton of cotton yarn! Mostly Knit Picks Dishie, that has been sitting in my stash for a while. I love to make washcloths with cotton yarn! I find they are so sturdy but soft and flexible at the same time! My favorite way to use them is in the kitchen! They are thick and great for cleaning up messes! So I used my one of my favorite stitch combos to create this the Dude Washcloth! This washcloth is thick, yet sturdy! You’ll want to make a whole bunch of these, because they are so quick and easy to work up!
The Dude Washcloth crochet pattern also has instructions on how to change the number of stitches so you can make it any size you want! Enjoy!
- 70 yards (each) worsted weight cotton yarn for set of 4
- I (5.5mm) crochet hook
- Measuring tape
- Tapestry needle
- Row 1 = 9”
