Crocheted cotton face cloths are a great project to always have on the go. Not only are they are compact and easy to travel with but they also make fantastic gifts and are always well received.

They are the first project I completed when I finally tried my hand at crocheting, having been a lifetime knitter up until that point. They are great for beginner’s because they provide the repetition needed to get the hang of crocheting and you end up with a completed project rather than just numerous test squares. Face cloths to this day are still my favourite way to test out a new stitch in either knitting or crochet or to trial different colour combinations for larger projects.

We have included our basic crocheted cotton face cloth pattern below using Avalon 8ply. 2 balls of the Avalon 8ply yarn will make 3 face cloths!

These cloths would also look great in the 10ply ombre cotton yarn, Sugar’n Cream. To use that yarn and this pattern simply increase your hook size to 4.5mm and then follow the pattern. Your cloth will be slightly larger than the original was intended, and you might not get quite 3 cloths out of 2 balls of a 10ply. You could also use the Avalon 10ply the same way with a 4.5mm hook and you would end up with a chunkier cloth. Sometimes people prefer a 10ply for dish cloths because they get more abrasion for scrubbing with the chunkier yarn.
