Rita's Crochet Posted Washcloth
(the one of the left)
It isn't all that hard to follow a crochet pattern! Now wait, I see some of you shaking your head "yes" in agreement but then I see some of you shaking your head "Ah, no"! But really, it isn't that is if you take the time to really read the pattern which I don't always do and then what happens is a new design or creation happens. However, my problem with many of the dishcloth patterns I have seen is that you can stick your fingers through the holes! Yikes, I don't really like that very much, just saying. So, when I wanted to make washcloths to match my bedroom/bathroom, I wanted some that I could depend on in the colors I wanted. We are planning for a more shabby chic decor but our bedroom is more...bright =).
So here is the pattern I came up with using some very old stitches that I have grown to love and adore. They are super easy and you can do them too!
