The Rustic Farmhouse Washcloth is an easy to work design. It features a classic texture that looks wonderful in the solid colour, but that can also be customized to fit your current home decor.
This design features one of my favourite crochet stitches: The Extended Moss Stitch. The stitch, once it is set up, is worked similar to the single crochet moss stitch, but it has more texture and works up much more quickly. You are going to love it!

The Rustic Farmhouse Washcloth is worked simply in rows with an easy edging. They would make a great addition to your own kitchen or packaged as a gift to a friend and family member. Add some to a Christmas Gift or as a Stocking Stuffer!
This crochet washcloth pattern is worked using a worsted weight 100% cotton yarn. In the photo above I have used a Bernat Handicrafter cotton. In the full free video tutorial below you will see me using a Pima Cotton by Lion Brand. I paired the yarn with a 5 mm crochet hook, shown in the video is a Birchwood hook by Rowan Yarns.
