Frilly Baby Washcloths

I wanted to make some pretty, frilly washcloths for the coming baby, probably to add to the ever growing shower gift lol!  These are easy to make once you have the pattern in your head and very quick… unless like me you decide to go overboard with the edging!

I used a regular crochet cotton in bright colours, alternating them for each washcloth and one I actually did in stripes to use up the remaining wool.

I used different edging for the solid washcloths than I did for the striped one.  I have included directions for each way.

Here is the pattern I used:

I used a size 6 crochet hook and 2 x 50 g balls of crochet cotton

Washcloth

Chain – ch 28.

Row 1: In 3rd ch from hook, work 1 sc, ch 2, 1 sc. *Skip next two chains and in next chain work 1 sc, ch 2, 1 sc. Repeat from * across. Finish with 1 hdc in last chain. Turn.

Row 2: Ch 2. *In next ch 2 space work 3 dc (shell made). Repeat from * across. Finish with 1 dc in top of turning chain. Turn.

Row 3: Ch 2. *In 2nd (middle) dc of shell, work 1 sc, ch 2, 1 sc. Repeat from * across. Finish with 1 hdc in top of turning chain. Turn.

Rows 4 – 9: Alternate rows 2 and 3, ending with row 2.
