When designing the Picking Posies Washcloth for the CAL Central Crochet Along, I ended up have plenty of yarn leftover to play with even after making 4 different washcloths. I thought it would be a great idea to make some matching face scrubbies to go with the washcloths! Putting the 2 together would make such a great set for gifts. You can find the matching washcloth pattern here. Continue reading Picking Posies Face Scrubby-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! Continue reading Picking Posies Washcloth-A Free Pattern
