Not Your Average Washcloth


This easy washcloth pattern to crochet is a little bit different from the other washcloth patterns you normally find. The thing that makes this particular pattern Not Your Average Washcloth is the fact that is has a small pocket in one of the corners. This added feature is the perfect place to store a small bar of soap in the shower or to hold onto the washcloth as you scrub those pots and pans in the kitchen sink.

I wasnt quite convinced of the usefulness of a washcloth with a pocket, but after seeing the designers example in action, I understood perfectly. You could adopt this idea to just about any other washcloth project, too. The designer gives instructions for three different sizes of washcloths as well, so you can customize them as needed. Score another clever idea from Sara Sach!

I would absolutely use this as a soap saver wash cloth for the bath or shower. What a great gift idea for a large group of people! Bridal shower to name one. Make your wash cloths and then fill it with fancy hand made soap from a local shop, and you will have a gift they will remember. It is simple to make as well! I see so many patterns using the Hobby Lobby I Love This Cotton yarn, and I have not ever used it myself!

Is this a washcloth, dishcloth, or both? The little pocket in the corner is quite unusual. If I decide to use this as a wash cloth I think I might just continue the little pocket to cover more area and make it like a hand mitten for washing and exfoliating. I bet the scrubby yarn would be a great exfoliator.

I bet you're spot on Hippie Chick! I think this little cloth would work for both applications! I also think continuing the little pocket about three quarters of the way would be a possible idea. It would make it a little bit more difficult to dry...but not that much. I've been wondering about the scrubbing/exfoliating properties of the scrubby yarn myself! A couple of these with a handmade bar of soap in a basket or wooden box would make a darling personal care gift!

This Not Your Average Washcloth is very useful. The small pocket is the selling point of this washcloth. Whoever designed the small pocket is very practical where you can slip your hand to hold on to while doing some scrubbing and cleaning in the kitchen. Yes, it's also useful as soap holder in the bathroom. You can just hang it in a strategic place in the bathroom. You can make several of this washcloth for individual use.

I Love this Not Your Average Washcloth pattern. I made a few of them with Lily Sugar' n Cream 100% cotton yarn and gave them to my Grand children. They love the small pocket for their hand and I made a few with a bigger pocket for use at home. A great, easy pattern. Thank you for this free pattern.
