Don’t knock it till you try it!!!
Many are disturbed when they see this post and Youtube video using acrylic for a washcloth. Now remember this is a ‘washcloth’ not ‘dishcloth’. You are welcome to choose any yarn you like but for me I LOVE acrylic for my face scrubs and washcloths. They stay soft, keep their shape, don’t fade and really don’t stain.
HOWEVER, this being said I DO NOT recommend acrylic in the kitchen. As pointed out by a lovely lady on my youtube channel some acrylics are made from fibres which will melt when exposed to heat. So unless it is for dishes only – skip the acrylic in the kitchen.
Try the acrylic – let me know what you think in the comments below, I am hoping you all like it as much as I do!
SKILL LEVEL: Beginner
- Worsted weight yarn
- 6.5 mm crochet hook
- Tapestry needle (used to weave in ends)
- Measuring Tape or Ruler
- Ch – Chain
- Sc – Single Crochet
Row 1: Sc in 2nd chain from hook and each chain stitch across (24) Ch 1, turn.
Row 2: Sc in 1st and each sc across (24) Ch 1, turn.
Repeat row 2 until piece measures 8″ or 33 rows. Note: Depending on your gauge (how tight your work your stitches) your piece may not measure the same as mine. In this case simply measure your piece until the length equals the width.
Fasten off and weave in ends.
