With Valentine's Day coming up, I want to make a little something to celebrate. This Heart Washcloth is just the thing! This quick and easy project is a basic corner to corner (C2C) square and the added heart, well, it just adds a little bit of love!
I've had Valentine's on my brain lately. One of the things I wanted to make was a heart washcloth (could also be used as an afghan square). Went to Hobby Lobby, and found the perfect colors for it! As a washcloth, C2C can sometimes become saggy because of the spaces in the boxes, and by spaces, I really just mean like a slit from the beginning chain that all the stitches are worked onto. I use my washcloths either for decorative purposes, or just to dry things up - not to wash anything with because of this. To make a better washcloth, go down a hook size for tighter stitches and/or use half double crochets in place of double crochets.
This crochet Valentine's Day garland is made from hearts and snowflakes and will make a beautiful decoration for this sweet holiday! For this garland I've used two previously designed patterns - the crochet heart snowflake and crochet the heart appliques. The snowflake I used for my garland is a beautiful romantic design. It has a heart in its center making it perfect for Valentine's Day! Besides Valentine's Day, this garland would be great for winter birthdays and wedding decorations.
This corner to corner pattern is worked in half double crochets, which allows for less space between each square which makes for a sturdier, more functional washcloth, but you still get the great texture of the corner to corner stitch pattern, and ease in creating the graphic. I used Lily Sugar n Cream and Crafters Secret Cotton for my samples, but Bernat Handicrafter and Paintbox Yarns Aran Cotton are good alternatives. I worked the small one up in just under 1.5 hours, and the large up in 1.75 hours.

Treat yourself with a luxury crochet washcloth! This lovely crochet washcloth was designed to have texture - both for visual and touchable interest. The puff stitches add a touch of luxury and the raised lines bring a visual appeal. Using a soft cotton yarn ensures that the crochet washcloth feels great to use from the start and bumps up the treat yourself feeling.
This crochet washcloth pattern is designed in closed rounds and begins as a circle before becoming square. This way, the texture radiates outward in a beautiful pattern.
