Crocheted Star Facecloth Pattern

Posted on July 23, 2012


I have been crocheting many washcloths and facecloths lately. I want to share this quick little crochet pattern for a star shaped facecloth. It’s a variation of my star dishcloth pattern but smaller. I love these smaller cloths as they make wonderful facecloths. Not too big and they work up so quickly. Also they are great for using those scrap pieces of cotton that you have leftover in your stash.


Each cloth measures about 7 inches from the top corner to the lower corner. I believe you only need a little over an ounce of cotton to do each facecloth. Have fun and mix and match the colors to create your own facecloths. As always, happy crocheting and I hope you enjoy the free pattern below.

    Great way to use up scraps. Grandma always saved little bits of cotton and used them in creative ways. Keep these great ideas coming.
