Around this time of year, I typically have everything figured out except for last minute gifts. I was racking my brain the other day for gift ideas for a friend and I came up with a great idea. A self-care kit with lotions and face masks. Just little ways to treat herself and de-stress. And I decided this washcloth set would be the perfect addition. A nice handmade touch. These washcloths are perfect for pampering. They're stitched up using a beautiful lemon peel stitch and are made out of a 100% cotton yarn. Perfect for mild exfoliation and sensitive skin.

Use this pattern for the Crunch Stitch Washcloths to learn a new stitch and create something useful for your home at the same time. These washcloths are beginner-friendly, and you have a choice to make them either in one color or using two colors. My favorite one is the pink and blue version because you can use leftover scrap yarn from bigger projects. The solid bumpy texture of the crunch stitch is perfect for these washcloths. They make beautiful gift sets paired with a handmade soap or body wash.
