Tender Spa Washcloth Dishcloth FREE Crochet Pattern
by Kristin Omdahl
This is a wonderful gift idea: giving a handmade spa cloth made of organic cotton with a bar of organic soap, an organic sugar scrub and a bottle of Wrapture all natural delicate wash. This particular spa washcloth features one ball of Be So Tender Yarn, 100% certified organic cotton, worsted weight yarn. In this pattern, learn a stitch called a basket weave, which is alternating between two stitch patterns for the effect of a woven basket. In this example, we use front post and back post double crochet stitches for extra texture – perfect for an exfoliating cloth, too!
