I absolutely love to crochet washcloths and give them as gifts! So I created another crochet pattern for just that! The Friendship Washcloth crochet pattern has amazing texture, a fun stitch combo, and is quick to make!
Do Crochet Washcloths Really Work?
You might be wondering if crochet washcloths are really useful and hold up well to a dirty pot in the sink or stuck on food. I’m here to tell you that if you use the right yarn, the answer is yes!
I use my crochet washcloths in the kitchen mostly. They are used to wash dishes, wipe counters, and clean up spills. They get washed in the washing machine and dried in the dryer. And they look good as new after all that!
When choosing a yarn for your crochet washcloth you want to go with a 100% cotton yarn. If the pattern calls for worsted weight, I highly recommend Paintbox Cotton Aran yarn.
Cotton Aran is both durable and absorbent. It is machine washable and dryable. It comes in a huge variety of colors, perfect for matching the color scheme in your kitchen or bathroom!
So yes, crochet washcloths really do work, but you need a good 100% cotton yarn and a great textured stitch to get the most out of it.
A crochet washcloth set makes a wonderful gift for a new mom, newlyweds moving into their first home, or just a special friend! Everyone will appreciate these beautiful and useful washcloths!
