Wagon Wheel Crochet Bath Set {Crochet Patterns}

Wagon Wheel Crochet Bath Set

I made this nice little bath set as a Christmas present last year.  It has everything you need to pamper yourself all year round.  Best of all, they're easy to clean.  Just throw them in with your regular laundry and they'll be ready to use again!

Materials Needed:
Your favorite cotton colors, here are a few of mine!  

Small wagon wheel face scrubbies (pictured above, small circle on right below pouf):

R1: ch 3, join to make ring, ch 3, 11 dc in ring, join to top of ch 3.
R2: ch 7, dc in next (counts as first dc and ch 3), *ch 3, dc in next**, repeat from * to **11 more times, join to 3rd of ch 7. (12 dc, 12 ch 3 sp)
R3: ch 2, hdc in same, *2 hdc in ch 3 sp, hdc in dc* around. join to top of ch 2, do not finish off.
(you are now working the strands on the back to hold scrubbie)
ch 11, join to opposite side, ch 11, join back to original side and then ch 11 and join back to the other side.  If you make the joins in a row you'll end up with a neat row of chains.  FO and weave in ends.

The Holidays are Coming!!!

This means that I'm in full out crafting mode, creating lots of awesome new things that I can't share yet... which is killing me!!!!  After the holidays are over, you'll be treated with lots of new patterns, projects and the like, and for now, you just have to be patient. To ease the wait, here's a simple washcloth pattern that you can whip up in less than an hour, and it's easily taken with you for working on while riding in a car or bus or waiting for an appointment.  They're great for lots of uses, I have a whole stack in my bathroom :)

Here's another pattern that I've written, this one also meant for my holiday gifting from Christmas 2011.  It's a really simple washcloth that can be embellished by adding a border or you can make it wider or taller in any way you see fit. If I had been smart and gauged it out a little better beforehand, I could have gotten the colors to line up in rows and make it look a little more finished.   Either way, I still think it looks nice and the v stitch gives it a really nice texture.

Materials:
I like using cotton yarn for my bathroom items, and for this I used Sugar and Cream yarn in this pretty ombre.   
A size H crochet hook
Instructions
Pattern:
Ch 30
Row 1: Sc in second chain from hook, *ch 1, sk next ch, sc* repeat to end, turn.
Row 2: ch2, hdc in next st, *ch1, hdc dec* to end, turn.
Row 3: ch1, *sc, ch1, sk next st* repeat to end, turn

Repeat rows 2 and 3 until your washcloth is square.

Mossy Water Washcloth {Crochet Pattern}

In yet another one of my holiday crafting mad moments, I created ANOTHER pattern!  I just can't seem to stop, and I LOVE it!  Today's pattern is a very simple washcloth, made using the Moss Stitch that I have loved so much during this holiday crafting season.  I really enjoy using nice ombres and cotton yarn to make this super nice, scrubby washcloths.

Copyright 2010-2012 LiLu Studios: This Crafting Life, by Lori Steffens. {http://www.thiscraftinglife.com/} Make it, Wear it, Love it, but above all, Share it, don't Sell it!

Materials:
Size H Hook
A ball of yarn: I use cotton, because it washes and dries very well as well as it acts more like a towel than with most yarns.
Pattern:
Ch 30
R1: sc in 2nd ch from hook, *sk1, ch1, sc* to end, turn.
R2: ch 2, sc in the first ch1 space, *sk sc, ch1,  sc in ch1 space* to end, turn.
R3-?:  Repeat R2 until your piece is square.
Pattern Notes:
Easy ways to change this pattern:
Add a border!  A border is a great way to finish off a project and can be as simple as an sc row all the way around, or as complex as stacked shells.
