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.

Simple Shells Washcloth: Quick and Easy Textured Stitch Pattern
The Simple Shells Washcloth is made with alternating rows of solid stitches and groups of shells, creating a pretty surface for scrubbing anything you need in the bath and kitchen! This washcloth is worked in rows using chains and double crochet stitches. You can easily customize the stitch repeat in multiples of 5+2 (+2 for the turning chain), then work any odd multiple of rows. While you don't see the term shell in the specialty stitch and technique section of this pattern, the group of five double crochet stitches worked into one place is a shell. Either way of writing the instruction is correct, and we hope beginners enjoy the simplicity in this version (the stitch chart should help, too). THIS IS A GREAT PATTERN BECAUSE: Washcloths are fun projects to learn new crochet stitches (especially when you follow our crochet chart with the written instructions)! You can use these in the bath or kitchen (plus, they make great gifts)! This project works great with cotton yarns (just one skein or less)! You'll get to practice a lot of crochet skills: rows, stitch tension, stitch counting and recognition, shells (5 double crochet stitches into 1 space) , borders, gauge and size, finishing techniques and more!
