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!
Crochet washcloths hold up so well, whether you use them in the bathroom or to scrub dishes! They make the best gifts for friends and family because everyone can use a washcloth! I used Yarnspirations Caron Cotton Cakes for the ones pictured. I absolutely love this yarn for washcloths! It is a cotton/acrylic blend, making it so soft but so durable! I have many that I use myself over and over again and they work perfectly! They are also easy to wash and don’t stretch out or get fuzzy in the washer or dryer! Plus you could probably get about a dozen washcloths out of one cake of this yarn!
