Hand Made Wash Cloths

Hello all. You will have already seen these wash cloths if you saw my end of January post. I got very annoyed when I couldnt find any flanels in my local shops, so I decided to make my own. Well finally, I am here to share the patterns with you!

Th first is this star stitch flannel.

Pattern

Chain 35.

Row 1. Pull up a loop from the 2nd, 3rd, 4th 5th and 6th chain from the hook, then yarn over one more time and pull the final loop through all loops on the hook. *Chain 1. Now draw up a loop from the space made by the chain 1, the final post of the previous star, into the chain at the bottom of the final star and then the next 2 chains. Yarn over once more and pull through all loops on the hook.* repeat until you have just 1 more chain remaining. HDC once more into the final chain. Turn your work.

Row 2. Chain 2, HDC once into the top of the HDC from the previous row then twice into each chain 1 space. When you reach the end of the row, HDC once into the top of the first stitch of round 1. Turn your work.

Row 3. Chain 3. Pull up a loop from the 2nd and 3rd chain from the hook then into the stitch at the base of the chain 3 and the next 2 stitches of the previous row, then yarn over one more time and pull the final loop through all loops on the hook. *Chain 1. Now draw up a loop from the space made by the chain 1, the final post of the previous star, into the chain at the bottom of the final star and then the next 2 chains. Yarn over once more and pull through all loops on the hook.* repeat until you have just 1 more chain remaining. HDC once more into the final chain. Turn your work.

Row 4. Chain 2, HDC once into the top of the HDC from the previous row then twice into each chain 1 space. When you reach the end of the row, HDC once into the top of the first stitch of round 1. Turn your work.

Row 5 to 18, repeat row 3 and 4 7 more times.

To finish, complete a round of SC around the edge of your square, comprising of 32 stitches per side plus 3 in each corner. Ss from the final SC into the first SC. Fasten off and sew in ends.

The second is this cluster stitch face scrubbie.

Pattern

Round 1. Into a Magic Circle, Chain 3 then DC 11 times (for 12 posts in total). SS into the top of the first post.

Round 2. Chain 3, then DC 4 more times into the first stitch. Remove your hook from your work and place it into the top of the chain 3. Pull the loop from the top of the 5th DC through the chain. Chain 1. In the next stitch, *DC 5 times. Remove your hook from your work and place it into the top of the first of the five DC stitches. Pull the loop from the top of the 5th DC through the first DC. Chain 1.* Repeat 10 more times for 12 clusters. SS into the top of the first cluster and again to the first chain 1 space.

Round 3. Chain 3, then DC 4 more times into the first chain 1 space. Remove your hook from your work and place it into the top of the chain 3. Pull the loop from the top of the 5th DC through the chain. Chain 1. In the same chain 1 space, *DC 5 times. Remove your hook from your work and place it into the top of the first of the five DC stitches. Pull the loop from the top of the 5th DC through the first DC. Chain 1*. Repeat 22 more times for 24 clusters. You should have 2 clusters of 5 DC in each of the chain 1 spaces. SS into the top of the first cluster and again to the first chain 1 space.

Round 4. For the final round, chain 1, then SC twice into each chain 1 space until you reach the end or the round. SS into the first SC, fasten off and weave in ends.

The third is this bobble stitch scrubbie.

Pattern

Round 1. Into a Magic Circle, Chain 3 then DC 11 times (for 12 posts in total). SS into the top of the first post.

Round 2. Chain 1 then SC into the first stitch. Chain 1. In the second stitch, complete a bobble stitch. (DC 5 times into the stitch, but instead of pulling through twice, just pull through the first time and leave the loop on the hook. Once you have worked 5 stitches like this, yarn over once more and pull through to create 1 bobble). Cain 1. SC into the next stitch, Chain 1, then bobble again. Repeat this around until you have 6 bobbles and 6 single crochets. Chain 1 then SS into the first SC.

Round 3. Chain 1, then SC twice into each SC and twice into each Chain 1 space. SS from the last to the first sc of the row.

Round 4. Chain 1 and SC twice into each of the first 2 stitches. Bobble stitch. Sc twice into the next 2 stitches. Bobble. Repeat to end of round.

Round 5. Chain 1. SC once into each sc and into the top of each bobble. SS into the top of the first SC to finish round.

Round 6. Chain 1. SC once into each stitch to end. SS into the top of the first SC to finish round. Fasten off and sew in ends.

And there we are. 3 wash clothes. Work them in 100% cotton to create a lovely set that can be washed over and over again.

I think I will make a couple of sets of these amd pair them with some handmade soap for some cute christmas presents.
