I often wonder why facecloths ( wash cloths ) are so big!

Maybe I just have little hands ;)

I decided to make some smaller sized facecloths for myself and my children to use – to see if we would like them better than the larger versions we buy at the store and I am happy to say – Yes! We do like the smaller versions much better! They are much easier to hold onto and to use.

Here is a quick and easy pattern for you to try – in two sizes -

This pattern produces a lovely textured face cloth / wash cloth.

These would also make perfect baby shower gifts – they are very similar in size to the baby wash cloths I received at Darla’s Baby Shower – only they are MUCH softer using the cotton yarn (and less expensive!).
