Crochet Pattern: Baby Washcloth

By Emilee Gettle – 4 Comments
This crocheted washcloth is a great project for beginners. You will master double crochet and single crochet and end up with a practical gift! These can be crocheted so fast! You are sure to enjoy the feeling of instant gratification! I want to make up several washcloths for my gift box. I like to work up easy projects that are great for gifting. You just never know when you might need a little something for someone you love. This takes all the stress out of making last-minute projects. Make up a set of washcloths and tie them together with a pretty ribbon and gift tag.

Blue Tie-Dye 100% Cotton Worsted Yarn (30 yards)
