Here is a DIY crochet washcloths tutorial for you!
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
Double, single, double, single – it’s called the “crunch stitch.”
To those of you who are experienced crocheters, you probably use this combo all the time, but for me it’s new and here we are!
Why you should use cotton yarn for this project
Cotton yarn is good for skin because it is a natural material that is soft and absorbent.
It is also hypoallergenic, making it a good choice for people with sensitive skin. Cotton yarn is also breathable, so it helps keep skin cool and comfortable!
Supplies for your DIY crochet washcloths
You’ll need a size I crochet hook 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.
