"I've had Valentine's on my brain lately. One of the things I wanted to make was a heart washcloth (could also be used as an afghan square). Went to Hobby Lobby, and found the perfect colors for it! As a washcloth, C2C can sometimes become saggy because of the spaces in the boxes, and by spaces, I really just mean like a slit from the beginning chain that all the stitches are worked onto. I use my washcloths either for decorative purposes, or just to dry things up – not to wash anything with because of this. To make a better washcloth, go down a hook size for tighter stitches and/or use half double crochets in place of double crochets."
NotesYarn Alternatives: Lily Sugar n Cream, Bernat Handicrafter, Red Heart’s Smoothie, Paintbox Yarns Cotton Aran, Rico Creative Cotton Aran.
Hook: Go down a hook size (H8/5mm) when working with Lily Sugar n Cream or Bernat’s Handicrafter.
Jewelry pliers are an excellent tool to use to help weave in ends, as cotton yarn can be quite tough on the fingers when weaving in with just fingers and a tapestry needle.
