Tunisian RIB Washcloth


This week I want to share with you the first in a series of patterns which will all work together to create a spa basket.   This would make a excellent mother's day gift (which is coming up soon) or just a lovely present for someone special in your life.   Over the next few weeks I will release a new FREE pattern which will all work together to create this gift and one of the patterns will also include the basket to put it all in.   Of course if you don't want to make the whole thing, then each of these patterns stand alone too.

This week I am starting off with my Tunisian Crochet RIB washcloth.  This wash cloth is made from cotton and as it uses only a small amount of each colour, it is easily something which can be made using up odds and ends of cotton that you may have in your stash, and for me this was definitely true.   In fact everything in the spa basket is created using materials which I already had at home, which means I am definitely working on my goal to use up my stash this year.   This wash cloth uses a new pattern which I hadn't tried before.   With some of my Christmas money I managed to get a couple of Tunisian crochet stitch guides and this stitch came from one of them.  The pattern is just large enough to use as a small washcloth which could work well either in the bathroom, or in the kitchen to do the dishes if preferred, it would also work well for cleaning hands and faces for any children in the house too!

Below is the FREE pattern for this washcloth, I hope that you enjoy making it and will join me the next few weeks to complete the whole spa basket.   See you next week with the pattern for the basket.
