Organic Crocheted Washcloths...

Admittedly, I've been known to go overboard at times. The last couple of years I've seen many examples of crocheted washcloths on blogs, but I've been a little cautious (until now). It might seem a little over the top, but they are definitely gaining in popularity, and I'm here to tell you I've seen the light. {Hallelujah}

I used the same easy-peasy pattern as the dishcloths that I made earlier this week for these 100% cotton organic washcloths. The pattern has just enough texture to gently exfoliate the skin.

There are those who swear by crocheted washcloths for their facial cleansing routine. Combined with the right soap there's something luxurious about the idea.

Tied with a ribbon and some yummy soap these would make a sweet personal gift over the holidays for a friend, co-worker, or hostess. They could also be used as a stocking stuffer! They take an evening to make, so you can literally make one a night if you browse the TV channels in the pm.

My MIL made me a couple of knitted washcloths a few years ago. They are a favorite of mine. I was wondering how your dishcloth pattern would work for washcloths. Now I know.
I almost have one dishcloth completed, just the edging left to do. Thanks for sharing your pattern.

Oh nice! Your pattern looks a lot easier than the one I tried. I'm much better at crochet than knitting. I have 2 that I started knitting and are 3/4 done, lol! Maybe I will finish them in time for *this* christmas! I definitely think I could crochet up a storm and get more made with this pattern.

This is a gorgeous gift idea. I love to crochet but rarely have time for a big project, so this is perfect!

I love crocheted wash cloths - so much more luxurious than regular wash cloths from the store :) Yours is so pretty!

My late mother supplied me with knitted dishclothes. I would love your pattern for crocheting.
