Design Story and Inspiration for these Easy Crochet Washcloths!

Washcloths are a lot like socks in my house. One day I have a ton, then the next they are all missing. So, my solution was to crochet some easy washcloths with the hope that if I take the time to make some, hopefully myself and everyone else will be more mindful of the washcloths. If I could crochet socks as fast I would do the same, but let’s be honest, I have yet to finish a sock! Keep Scrolling to use this crochet washcloth free pattern below!
