Make a crochet washcloth out of cotton yarn. It is easy to do and so soft on your skin. A few months ago, I was at a craft fair and a customer asked me if I had some. Honestly, I did not know there was cotton yarn but I looked it up later and found out how to make them. I found some cotton yarn and started crocheting washcloths!
You will need:
If you are brand new to crochet, you will
need to refer to how to make a slip knot, how to chain in crochet, and
how to half double crochet on YouTube or in a crochet book.
Make a slip knot and then chain 25.
In third chain from hook, Half Double Crochet in each of the chains all the way to the end of the row. You should make 23 stitches.
Chain two and then turn your project. Start doing half double crochet in your first stitch from hook. Do 23 all the way across and then chain two and turn.
this pattern of half double crochet for 19 more rows, for a total of 20
rows to make a washcloth that measures nine inches by nine inches.
you have completed the number of rows needed, you can leave
"unfinished" as is or you can single crochet around all four sides to
finish the washcloth. Adding the single crochet border will make your
finished washcloth a little bit bigger than nine by nine inches.
If you want to leave it unfinished, cut the yarn, leaving a four inch tail. Pull the end of the yarn tail through the look left on the crochet hook and then pull tight. This binds the project off of the crochet hook.
Using the yarn needle, weave the end tail and the beginning tail from the slip knot into the washcloth stitching, concealing it. For best results, weave it going in one direction for several stitches, then in the other direction, and finally in the first direction. That way, it should not come undone.
There are other stitches that can be used when crocheting a washcloth such as single crochet, double crochet and a combination of stitch types.
