Crocheted Star Facecloth Pattern

July 23, 2012 2 comments

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.

Star Facecloth Pattern

Cloth measures: 7 inches
Hook: H (5 mm) US sized hook (you can use a G hook too)

Sugar & Cream Cotton scraps (about 1+ ozs)

With center color, Ch 5, Sl St to form ring.

Here is my latest free crochet washcloth or dishcloth pattern. This cloth represents a flag and I was inspired by the flag afghan square that was featured over at Crochet ‘N’ More. I have been making facecloths for charity and thought this would make a wonderful cloth with its patriotic theme.

Corded Cloth Pattern

Here is my simple but useful corded cloth pattern that is crocheted in cotton yarn. This cloth makes an excellent washcloth or dishcloth. I added the reverse single crochet stitch border and thus the name Corded Cloth was given to this project.

Here is a solid colored cloth in denim cotton.

I have been crocheting several washcloths for the project that I joined over at Ravelry for our troops. The website is Warmth for Warriors and we are doing washcloths right now for the troops if you’d like to join in here.

Here is the free crochet pattern below for the washcloth or dishcloth. Enjoy!
