Robin's Egg Slanted Shell Washcloths
"These washcloths were originally named "slanted shell" but they actually use the Suzette Stitch pattern - a combination of simple single crochet's and double crochet's. This stitch pattern is one of my favorites! The combination of the two stitches together creates a nice cushion, and also a great texture. The beautiful feminine shell stitch here makes this the perfect gift for her or just for yourself! These would also make a wonderful gift for mom this Mother’s Day! You'll need about 45 minutes to work one up."
