The Beginner-Friendly Crochet Washcloth
While working on my “How to Crochet” series, I wanted to provide several beginner-friendly patterns to help new crocheters practice. Plus, I wanted to show beginners how many items they could make with just crocheted squares and rectangles.
A quality washcloth is truly a treasure. My grandmother used to receive one a year from her best friend and used it all year long. She told me nothing was more durable than a handmade dishcloth.
