Free Crochet Pattern: C2C Heart Washcloth

C2C Washcloths Heart

 

C2C Heart Washcloth

With Valentine’s Day coming up I wanted to make a little something to celebrate. The heart washcloth is made in cotton and can be used for bath or kitchen. This quick and easy project is a basic corner to corner (C2C) square and the added heart, well, it just adds a little bit of love!

You can see the basics of how to work a corner to corner in my Confetti Blanket HERE or you can watch a video by Crochet Crowd HERE. Most C2C projects are worked with double crochet and a starting chain 6, however, this washcloth is worked in half double crochet and chain 5 to make it tighter and stronger for rubbing and exfoliating.

I hope you enjoy making it and will share your finished pictures on my Facebook page.

Washcloth

The chart below will indicate where to change colors to achieve the heart design. Make color changes in your favorite method, I like THIS method by Moogly.

 I have also provided row by row instructions with the number of each squares in a particular color, for example 1W, 2R, 2W means you will work one square in white, the next two in red and the final two in white. A square for this pattern is defined as a [ch2, 3 half double crochet] set.

R= Red; W= White
Arrows indicate direction of stitches

    Because of the corner to corner technique you don’t carry, you just pick it up next time you need it. If it is a long distance then you cut and start a new ball.

    Thanks for free pattern.
    Is this done intarsia or do you carry unused yarn across ? I’ve tried and it’s hard to keep the color hidden .
