12 Days of Crocheted Stocking Stuffers

DAY 6



Day 6, we are halfway through the 12 Days of Crocheted Stocking Stuffers. Today's project is a washcloth which kind of goes along with the Face Scrubbies from Day 2. Washcloths are one of my favorite quick crochet projects. 

I would pair it with some smelly soap or body wash, maybe even tie the two together with a ribbon before putting them in the stocking. You could also make a washcloth set with 2 or 3 washcloths in coordinating colors.


For this washcloth I used a stitch that I learned as the Grit Stitch. I have also seen it called the Suzette Stitch, and I have seen the Grit Stitch refer to something completely different. Crochet stitches are funny that way, one stitch can have several names, and one name can sometimes refer to more than one stitch. Whatever you call it it is a pretty easy stitch to make and I love the texture it gives.
