Add a pretty pop of color to your bathroom with the eye-catching Ixora Washcloth. The lovely and unique texture of this easy crochet washcloth pattern is created using a combination of chains and extended half double crochet stitches. This pattern is simple to work up for anyone with a little bit of crochet experience, but the special stitch combination results in a piece that looks way more complex than it actually is.
