Hi, and welcome to day five of the Spring Cleaning Free Crochet Pattern Blitz! Today I’d like to introduce you to the Jasmine Washcloth.
Jasmine has to be one of my favourite scents. The plant itself features pretty little flowers that are very fragrant. This stitch reminds me of those little flowers, and it makes for a pretty washcloth.
The puff stitches that make up the jasmine star stitch create a plush washcloth with great texture and flexibility. The cloth is great for a multiple of uses, from washing dishes to the bath.
For this project you will need some of your favourite crochet cotton and a 5 mm crochet hook. For assistance with the pattern, be sure to check out the video tutorial at the end of this pattern.
To add this pattern to your library or to purchase a downloadable PDF version you may do so from either my Ravelry or Etsy shops:
