Crochet Tutorial: Washcloth

Geared towards the beginner, this simple cotton face cloth is a great starter project for the crochet novice. A set of cotton washcloths make a lovely handmade gift that will be well received by anyone.  Just recently, I made some homemade bars of soap and gave these as gifts to some of my friends. Pair it with a bar of homemade soap or a pump cleanser, and you have the perfect set that is sure to please. I love my cotton washcloths! I use them for all kinds of different things, washing dishes, face cleansing, wiping down dusty surfaces, dusting out the car, wiping up spills in the kitchen, the list goes on! Enjoy making this dishcloth!
