Every fall I dig out my grandmothers crochet needles and start on projects. I have a hard time crocheting in the summer when all I want to do is be outside. Last year I did some cute wrist cuffs with buttons that my nieces liked a lot. They really liked the little pom pom embellisment and the fact that the buttons were from grandmas sewing box.
This fall I’m working on scrubbie cloths, making a few sets as gifts for Christmas this year. This is one of the finished sets. The one I am currently working on are a combo of bright orange, blue, and green. I’ll post pictures of those when they are done. They are 100% cotton, machine washable, have a nice soft feel to them. This is an easy pattern that uses two stitches, the single crochet and the treble crochet. The pattern is available below! I also had enough left over to make a matching basket!
