Crochet A Face Cloth

To crochet a face cloth you really need a nice soft cotton. I have used a soft cotton in all of the face cloths below. I buy lot's of left overs from other peoples stashes and I never knew up until recently what I was going to use this cotton stuff for. I am learning all of the time about different fibres and what they are better used for, the latest lessons have been about dish cloths and face cloths.
I know quite a bit about the different stitch patterns that are around and I just had to have a little think and do some research to find a st that I would like to use.
The latest st I have tried is the woven stitch and it is easy on the eye and also a soft grain for the face as a face cloth.
The first 2 face cloths which are made with the woven stitch and an 8 ply cotton, worked up very quick.

The griddle stitch (up and down st) is an old favourite of mine, but I do prefer the woven stitch pattern in the first 2 face cloths. I found a couple of Illustrations on line that may help with the stitch patterns for you.

The woven stitch is pretty cool looking. Plus I like the up and down too. Great Job!!!!!
All you need is fancy smelling soap and your all set. They make cute gifts. I saw one women made a little set in the same color. facecloth with scrunchie and soap saver. I think I saw it on She was selling the set for $17.00. Do you still sell some of your stuff????
