The spike cluster stitch makes for a gorgeous washcloth!
It would make a wonderful gift, too! With its two-color motif, this crochet wash cloth may look complicated and challenging, but even for a relative beginner to intermediate crocheter it is achievable. This pattern is perfect as a stash buster if you happen to have some extra cotton yarn from other projects, or stashes of yarn in search of a project as is sometimes the case!
Just think of how lovely a set of these would be, tied up with a satin ribbon and all ready for gift giving at the holidays or for a housewarming or whatever the occasion. This might be a project you’d want to consider if you make and sell your crochet creations for profit at crafts fairs or online.
Yes, this is a really fantastic pattern! It’s free, too. It’s the “Spike Cluster Stitch Wash Cloth” by designer Kati of KatiDCreations. If you’re new to the Spike Cluster Stitch, no worries as she links you to an excellent video tutorial by designer Tamara Kelly of Moogly that will quickly get you up to speed. Aside from that this pattern uses only basic stitches — chain stitch, single crochet (SC) and slip stitch (SLST).
Not only will you find this pattern at Kati’s blog but if you scroll down you’ll see images and links to a few more free patterns for these visually stunning crochet washcloths and dish cloths!
