I have been working on little gift sets as thank you presents for our amazing midwifes. I decided to give them each a Starbucks’ giftcard (When your profession means a lot of all-nighters, coffee is your friend!), a bar of Lomah Acres‘ nourishing goat’s milk soap, and a crocheted wash cloth. I hope this will be the perfect pairing for a thank-you present.
I have made plenty of crocheted dish cloths over the past several years. They work great and make wonderful wedding presents paired with other items. Since I was giving goat milk soap, I really wanted to crochet wash cloths. So, where else would I turn to gather patterns but Pinterest! I found several patterns I want to try, but this first one is from Raverly. I love the way the stitches create a unique texture. This Waffle Crochet Spa Wash Cloth (free and easy pattern by Katie Alvis) didn’t take long to crank out and I am pleased with the result. The pattern recommended using organic cotton, but I just used the cheaper “peaches and cream” or “sugar’n cream” yarn. Though I did find a Sugar’n Cream Yarn Ombres-Earth through Amazon that seems to be a more natural fiber. I hope to try this on one of my next wash cloths.

I have been working on building up my Pinterest and would love it if you followed The Engaged Home. On my Yarn Along board you can find many of the projects I have done and ones I plan to try. This pattern as well as several other wash cloth and dish cloth patterns are pinned there.
I want to try this pattern in a solid-colored yarn next because I think it would make the stitches and texture really pop. I may try a brown to match the Cup O’ Joe scented bar of soap I bought. (Which buy the way has actual ground coffee beans in it!) 🙂
