Picking Posies Washcloth-A Free Pattern

 

I was so happy to be offered a slot in the most recent CAL Central Crochet-Along! Every Monday from June 18th through August 20th, 2018 several designers will share a new pattern for a free washcloth or dishcloth (to me they are the same thing but used in different rooms! hehe) For this CAL Cascade Yarns graciously provided the designers with yarn support, so all of the washcloth patterns are designed using Cascade Ultra Pima or Ultra Pima Paints. This was my first time working with this yarn, and I loved how smooth and soft it was. It worked up so wonderfully!

How the 2018 Washcloth CAL Works

Every Monday from June 18 through August 20, 2018, we’ll share a free crochet pattern for a washcloth. You can make quick washcloth projects to keep or to gift while chatting with other crocheters in our groups. Cascade Yarns generously provided yarn support to all participating designers, so all of our patterns are made in Cascade Ultra Pima or Ultra Pima Paints, light (#3/DK) weight, 100% cotton yarns.

Cascade Yarns, Chickadee Sewing & Crochet, Navi’s Handmade, and Pastiche Accessories have generously provided us with end-of-CAL prizes. Don’t forget to share a picture of each of your completed projects in this post on Underground Crafter by 11:59 p.m. on August 27, 2018 to enter for your chance to win!
