To me, the puff stitch and bobble stitch are one in the same, but as I am not a full-time professional crochet-er, my opinion doesn’t count. But what does count is how soft and scrubby this washcloth is. I prefer to use these for bathing, but they work just as good for cleaning and washing dishes! You don’t have to take my word for it, though. Just look at how pretty these turned out!
Some thing that are required before purchasing the pattern:
- 1 skein (approximately 102yds/93m) Sugar’n Cream size 4 worsted cotton yarn (any color/variant – Stripes, Prints, Solid, Ombre, etc.)
- NOTE: Any cotton yarn will do as long as it’s 100% cotton or mixed with bamboo and is approximately 100yds worth. If the yarn is bulky, you will have to adjust the number of stitches per row. If the yarn is smaller than size 4 worsted, crochet with two yarns together.
- Acrylic isn’t absorbent like natural fibers, so that yarn won’t work for this. A 50/50 blend of acrylic and cotton might work, but as I haven’t tested it, I’ll leave that up to your discretion.
- Size 5mm/H-6 crochet hook
- Tapestry needle (for weaving in ends) – optional
- A basic understanding of US stitches (single crochet, half double crochet, etc)
You can make them in whatever colors you want, solid or ombre or striped or whatever! Really, it’s up to you to decide what sort of washcloth you want.
Out of all the yarns I’ve used, Lily’s Sugar’n Cream is still my favorite, but Sidar is the softest by far, and Paintbox holds the colors the best. But really, it’s up to you on what sort of cotton yarn you want to use/are able to get in your area.
Be sure to check back in on my Etsy shop to see what patterns I come up with in the next month or so!
(Psst! The pattern is on sale for a short time, so make sure you get it before the sale ends!)
Happy crafting =)
