Kitchen Washcloths

Time to use up some random scraps!

Yes! Perfect for wiping up the table and counters. Hubby said he likes the round ones, and I always appreciate any help cleaning up the kitchen! A great way to use up bits of cotton.

There was also a pattern I considered making in a larger version for a baby blanket. I figured this was a good way to try it out first:
Quite boring, but it gets the job done. =) I don't know if I'll do it for a baby blanket yet. Maybe if there was a nice stripe pattern...


  1. OOOh washcloths -- that's what I'm going to be making today. Two ladies coming to learn crocheting and after we master the basics (chain, turning, etc.) our first project is going to be a simple washcloth!

  2. Were you thinking about doing the baby blanket in squares that join or just as a single piece? I'm just thinking that maybe a series of squares, half of them like this and half of them in some other pattern, might make the idea pop a little more. Maybe?

  3. Good idea! Honestly never thought of using cotton scraps to make washcloths just for me (so they dont *need* to be pretty, kwim?!) That second one looks nice. Maybe crochet some simple sc strips to run through the empty spaces, weaving style, and *then* crochet the edging on the square? I think that would look nice, and give the blanket some depth and cushy-ness:)

  4. My Great-Aunt Mae used to make crocheted washcloths all the time! Great idea using scraps! I've got quite a few of those. ;)

  5. I don't think it's boring at all! I can see it in a soft pink color.


I love your comments and questions! I'll reply as soon as I am able. Thanks for visiting!
