Jazz Up Your Bathroom!
Transform your bathroom with homemade washcloths in your favourite cotton yarns!
Making your own washcloths is a perfect way to personalise your bathroom. With a huge variety of coloured cottons and any stitch under the sun you can make washcloths for any colour scheme! They make a beautiful housewarming gift, wrapped up with delicious soap tied with a ribbon too!
I love this sweet washcloth with its gorgeous scalloped edging! There are two different edgings to try in this pattern, with a 5mm hook. Try Paintbox Yarns Cotton Aran, it comes in 56 shades!
Linen stitch produces a fabulous nubbly texture that is perfect for a washcloth, you’ll feel beautifully clean after using these! Make them in solid colours or stripes in your favourite aran cotton!
These beautiful waterlily inspired washcloths are worked in crochet thread, so they are finer and more delicate than washcloths worked in aran cotton. You could work them in any weight yarn – but the DMC Petra Crochet Cotton Perle No 3 comes in some fabulous shades works up with a 2.5-3mm hook.
Shelley has designed a washcloth that is totally reversible! Her clever pattern includes two different washcloths and you can crochet them in any weight yarn. Paintbox Yarns Cotton DK has 60 shades to choose from, and a good twist that won’t split, and Lily Sugar and Cream Solids is a well known worsted weight cotton that is perfect for washcloths too!
Kate Eastwood’s pamper set includes three washcloths, scrubbies, a shower exfoliator and a little pot to keep them in! This would make a wonderful gift, or set for your own bathroom! The full tutorial is free here. Kate uses Debbie Bliss Cotton DK, which comes in the Debbie Bliss signature colour palette – whimsical and vintage, or bold and modern, with a firm twist that won’t split!
