Colorful Fall Washcloths

With Fall right upon us, I thought I’d get an early start on a few projects!!!  First up, my mom absolutely loves the Cotton Washcloths I had made her several years ago.  She’s been requesting me to make her some new ones.  So, I decided to make her a set of 5 in gorgeous Fall colors.

I used a 5.5mm hook and simple stitches consisting of single and half double crochet stitches.  This project works up quickly, super cute, and sure to please the recipient with its softness.

Aren’t these colors so warm and inviting?  I can’t help but think of pumpkins, the smell of cinnamon and a little bit of the woods when I look at this completed set...
