While compiling the Simple Crochet Patterns from Crochet Me:
5 Free Easy Crochet Patterns eBook, I fell in love with the Organic Cotton
Washcloth for Babies. It looked so simple and quick but at the same time
luxurious and pampered; the perfect last minute gift. Somehow I missed the
potholder and washcloth stage when I was learning how to crochet, so this would
be a new adventure for me.
Now I think I might have been missing something jumping
straight into lace crochet. I love the slightly nubby feel of the stitches and
the softness of the organic cotton in this washcloth. I keep stopping mid-row
to rub the fabric against my cheek. And the pattern is fun and easily memorized.
I am down to the last two rows. The original washcloth used
a subtle tan, but I found a fun bright yellow in my stash. A row and a half
in and I'm starting to doubt my choice. The yellow is very bright. It could be
too much, or with the addition of a little rubber ducky, it could be a
fabulously fun baby shower gift.
