Wash Up Cloths

Wash Up Cloths

The Wash Up Cloths Crochet Pattern features a crochet stitch some of you may have not tried before, the Sedge Stitch.

The Sedge Stitch inside the Wash Up Cloths Crochet Pattern consist of a single crochet and 2 double crochet all in one stitch.  The Sedge Stitch gives the washcloth a nice textured look and feel that is great for cleaning and washing up.

My Wash Up Cloths Crochet Pattern contains 2 cloth crochet patterns inside.  The crochet pattern is a quick and easy one and hey work up so fast you can make a lot in one day!

You will find a FREE version of my Wash Up Washcloths below.  These would be a perfect make for the guys in your life.  My hubby uses them in his garage for when he works on cars or needs to wash up his tools.
