255. Baby Washcloth (Chocolate)

Crochet, project 255. Completed 6/29/2010

Love this pattern!

Adapted from instructions in the “Oh So Soft Baby Washcloths” pattern, copyright 2008 by Theresa Grant. Grant says, “This pattern is for personal use only. Feel free to make it for your family and friends, but it may not be used for profit in any way, shape, or form.”

Grant’s pattern is great. A lot of washcloth patterns call for the finished size to be 9 to 11 inches across, which I find too large. Her instructions are easy to follow, and the texture of the finished cloth is quite pleasing.
