The pattern for this washcloth is super simple and works up quite quick, so makes a great last-minute gift. I really think this yarn is the perfect fit for it. I love the colors-- they're subtle and natural (it's Oasis in Peaches & Creme).
Just find any cotton worsted weight yarn, an H hook and lets get started!
What you'll need:
Size H (5 mm) hook (a set like this would be perfect for a beginner)
One ball of cotton worsted weight yarn (I used Peaches & Creme in Oasis)
Approximately 9.75x9.5 inches
ch=chain, st(s)=stitch(es), sc=single crochet, fpdc=front post double crochet, bpdc=back post double crochet, hdc=half double crochet
1) in 2nd ch from hook, sc and across (35 total sts)
2) ch 1, turn, hdc in first 2 sts, fpdc, *hdc in next 4 sts, fpdc, repeat from * 5 times, hdc in last two sts
3) ch 1, turn hdc in first 2 sts, bpdc, *hdc in next 4 sts, bpdc, repeat from * 5 times, hdc in last two sts
4-27) continue to alternate between rows 2 and 3 (last row will be a repeat of row "3")
tie off and weave in ends making multiple passes with your needle, so it can withstand multiple washes!
That's it! Super easy in my opinion, and I love the look..
Have a beautiful day,
