A simple facecloth in single crochet - made special with a slip stitch surface design in a contrasting colour & finished with a textured, reverse single crochet border. Make it in soft cotton for the perfect, colour coordinated bathroom accessory. I have also made pairs of flannels, in opposite colours, with matching, handmade soap as gifts.

Pattern Format:
Pattern is written in US crochet terminology and includes photos and mini tutorials for some of the techniques involved.

Gauge is 16 sts & 20 rows in single crochet.

Finished dimensions:
If you crochet to gauge, the flannel is a generous 28cm x 28cm.
