Crocheted Washcloth...Yes, Crochet!

 I recently had the opportunity to barter crafting skills with a friend. She showed us how to needle felt, I taught her daughter some jewelry making. It was so fun, we did it again and this round, she taught me crochet. I swapped my garden advice, which should not be construed as professional advice. ha! This was my first attempt, and yes, it appears there was a big smudge on my camera lens. I would tell you what stitch I used, but then I would sound like an idiot. I think it is the single chain, and I hooked through the back loop. See, I told you I'd sound ridiculous!

I love the ridges that are formed with this stitch. I used 100% cotton so it will make a nice washcloth. I am going to save it for Operation Christmas Child. The most amazing part of this is I finished it in a day and a half. Considering it took me months to knit a washcloth, I think I am quicker at crochet. Besides, it gives me something to do when I take my kids fishing. That is, when I am not removing hooks from hair, trees, and the occasional fish.


  1. Can I be first on the list when you start crocheting blankets? :)

  2. You did a great job. It's beautiful!
