Cheery Washcloths. Have You Tried Illusion Crochet?

I’ve been busy making little Christmassy and NewYearsy thingies for me&family 🙂

Among other things, I’ve made a few facial washcloths – my first handmade ones. I’ve come across the idea of a crocheted cotton face cloth/scrubby here on WordPress, I believe when reading a post by “storytellingcook of Recipe in a Bottle” 🙂 I thought it was such a great idea I got some of my super soft cotton yarn out to make a few holidaysy ones this season 🙂 I mean, I’d tried making washcloths and dishcloths before, but a facial scrubby was a new one and absolutely my favorite 🙂 I also saw Ruthie’s Crafting Corner made some cute face washcloths! Aren’t we all on the same crochet wave!

Here’s my little sampler. I used “I love this cotton!” yarn – and I do LOVE this cotton, it’s so soft and gentle on skin!!! Next, I’m going to try some super soft bamboo…

This one is for me – I did a bit of layered crocheting here:

This one is for my mom – the motif comes from Linda Schapper’s book “300 Classic Blocks for Crochet Projects”:

I thought I’d also share my WIP – a 3D Illusion Crochet Christmas Tree washcloth-to-be – my take on “Illusion Knitting“. I love this fascinating effect, but I do not knit (I tried knitting in the past, but it didn’t stick :).  Tunisian crochet seemed like a great alternative to knitting in this case, so I improvised as follows:

Try it – it’s fun!!!

Have a great day!
