DIY Crocheted Washcloths

crochet-towel-diy
I bet you’re thinking – why crochet washcloths when I can just buy them? Well, when you love yarn, you’ll find any reason or project to work that hook! Here is what intrigued me about this project – I came across a video on YouTube that showed a stitch combo I’d never used before. Double, single, double, single – it’s called the “crunch stitch”. To those of you who are expereinced crocheters, you probably use this combo all the time, but for me it’s new and here we are!
 

You’ll need a size I crochet hook (I used my friend Drew’s – The Crochet Dude!)and start with a chain of 25. When it comes to the stitches, you want to do a double, then a single, a double, single, etc. This creates a tight, nubby texture, great for a gourmet washcloth. There are so many pretty colors, you can mix and match any combo, or go with solids.

 I think these would be cute to make for a special guest that is visiting your house, or to add a pop of color to your bathroom or kitchen. The best aspect is that they are totally strong and functional!
