Are you looking for something to make for Mother's Day? What about a "pamper yourself" gift, or "New Mommy" package? These crocheted washcloths would be a great addition!
The washcloths measure between 8-9 inches square. It will depend on your tension. The patterns are easily adjusted. If you would like them a little larger, you could increase your hook size or add a few beginning chains.
Each washcloth has a different texture and stitch pattern. I really enjoyed working these up.
This first pattern is for a hdc v-stitch washcloth.

What you will need for each washcloth:
Worsted 100% cotton yarn
hdc-half double crochet
Hdc in 2nd ch from hook. *Sk 1 ch, (hdc, ch 1, hdc) in next st.* Repeat across until 2 ch’s remain. Hdc in last st.
Ch 1, hdc in first hdc, (hdc, ch 1, hdc) in each ch 1 space across. Hdc in last hdc of row.
Repeat row 2 until your washcloth is square.
Ch 1 sc in each stitch around, 3 sc in each corner. Sl-st into first sc, fasten off and weave in ends.
