Crochet Square Washcloth - Pattern REVIEW - Stitch11



I found this cute Square Washcloth Pattern while browsing through the free household item patterns courtesy of Corina from Stitch11. I had some cotton yarn laying around that I got back on clearance back around Spring Time and decided to give the pattern a go.

Materials I Used:
     - 1 Skein of Lily Sugar n Cream in Beach Ball Blue
     - H8/5mm Hook (size down from recommended)
     - #18 Tapestry Needle for Weaving in Ends
     - Square Washcloth Pattern (free pattern)

Material Notes:
     *Bernat Handicrafter Yarn, and Lion Brand Kitchen Cotton are good substitutions.
     *I attempted one washcloth with a I9/5.5mm hook (as recommended) but did not have enough yarn left to complete a second washcloth.
     *I would not go any smaller than a #20 tapestry needle since cotton yarn is a little more difficult to work with being that there isn't much stretch and flexibility.

Time Spent:
     I was able to work up two washcloths in about an hour.

Measurements:
     Using the recommended hook, your washcloths will measure out to be an 8.5" square.
     Using the H hook like I did, my washcloths came out to be a 7.5" square.


Pattern Notes: 

I really like the look of these washcloths - the four triangles coming together look. 

According to Corina, this look also allows this washcloth to stretch in all directions so it keeps it's square shape.

Clean up is a cinch! Simply throw your washcloths in with your regular laundry and then lay flat to dry!


Make a matching pair of facial scrubbies and this would make a great gift set!
