Pima Face Cloth

by Daisy

Thank you for visiting Little House in the Suburbs. If you like what you see, please SUBSCRIBE.

I call this the ‘Pima’ facecloth, because that’s what it’s made from…Pima Cotton. Which is like the American version of Egyptian Cotton. Very strong. Very soft. Very expensive.

Unless you hit the jackpot at a garage sale, like me. Fifty cents a skein!

Hi, I love this pattern! I made a couple and posted pics on my blog with a link to your site. I only wish I could have made it from Pima cotton. I had to use Aunt Lydia’s. Thanks for the pattern!!

Love this pattern! It’s pretty AND simple 🙂 We desperately need new wash cloths and towels so I can’t wait to get started.

I do have a question, if you don’t mind me asking – if I want to make towels from this pattern, how many stitches should be in the original chain?

I can’t remember. So sorry, but it was years ago….

No problem, Ivory Soap. Thanks for replying.

I’ve made the first one today and it worked out great. I think I’ll be able to muddle through changing the size. Besides, single crocheting around the cloth hides many… ah… irregularities 🙂

Thanks for putting the face cloth on your page I am working on the warriors project where we send washcloths to soldiers in Afghanistan
