Set of 3 Washcloths


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.
