Crocheted Wash Cloths for a Change

Blogged under crochet and knitting by Tammy on Wednesday 27 March 2013 at 4:48 pm

I have been on the amigurumi kick lately. It started out with the idea that I wanted to give some toys to charity, but I have to admit that it just became addicting at some point. I have worked on other projects a little. I have a shawl that I need to crochet about another foot on and it will be finished. It’s all double crochet for the most part so tends to be my “no brainer” project. I have also started another shawl project, but that on requires paying attention to the pattern a lot. Still, the amigurumi just kept calling me back: “Don’t you want to make another teddy bear?”

Yesterday, however, I set down the bear and picked up some Sugar N Cream cotton yarn and started on some wash cloths for my mother. She is difficult to make anything for, so at Christmas, I gave her an IOU with a list of items she could check off. She picked wash cloths. I will be making a trip to visit her soon, and I needed to get these done.

I used a pattern from a nice little book from designer Drew Emborsky called All Washed Up (Leisure Arts #75272). It has 9 dish or wash cloth patterns in it. I made two using the Finished with a Flourish pattern. Because I was short on time, I opted not to do the trim in the pattern and just finished them off with single crochet around the edges.

I like the texture these have, and this is definitely a pattern that I could see becoming a staple for me because once you get going, it’s pretty fast. These were a nice break from amigurumi and gave me some instant gratification.
