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.
