Scrappy Crochet Washcloth Pattern Free the Wild Lupine

Sharing is caring!

The Wild Lupine Crochet Washcloth is and easy and quick crochet pattern that works well with cotton yarn, scraps and bold colors.

The texture of this crochet stitch is easy to achieve. Crochet washcloths make amazing handmade gifts and are so easy to customize.

I’ve been a crochet tote making machine over here. Which means I’ve gone through plenty of cotton yarn and I’m left with some scraps.

I’m determined to stay ahead of the ever growing pile of scraps this time. So I worked up a little washcloth with a color combo inspired by the May picture hanging on my wall.

The gorgeous garden scene depicts a field of blue lupines and yellow flowers that is just stunning. And I happened to have the right colors in my stash to replicate it.

I wanted a stitch that would give my washcloth a little texture, but not be too yarn consuming-I’m working with scraps after all. I remembered working the sedge stitch in the round for my Tivoli purse, and knew it would be perfect. When I crocheted the sedge stitch in the round it created a smoother fabric, than when worked flat.
