Hi fellow crocheters! Another yet exciting pattern release is finally here!! I wanted to think out of the box and take a practical piece that works up quickly but is different and nothing I personally have seen before and that was the beginning of the round bubble washcloth. I sent it out to some amazing testers that if it wasn't for them! I could not have been able to get this ready in this short amount of time! So Thank you! Each of them are photo credit with their Instagram handle including @amandalovescrochet!
Not only did I want to create a product everyone already loves to use and make in a different shape but I kept my fellow makers who go to markets and sell their handmade creations in mind! I made specially designed wrap labels to help advertise and make them stand out on your display!! They are long to gift or sell as a set (2) as well as single washcloths using card stock paper!
I will end this post by saying how much I loved how this round washcloth turned out! I use mine currently using Lilly Sugar n cream yarn to wash my dishes and I love it! I have plans to use Premier Cotton yarn in the near future! Taking an oldie but a goodie and turning it into something fun to hold while doing dishes!!

The awesome thing about this washcloth is it can be doubled up and used as a potholder! It creates a squishy and adds thickness to be used as a hot pad. Use the same color or two as I did in the photo above! If you add a loop it is a nice piece to hand up and decorate your kitchen!
How to make a hot pad:
Make 2 Round Bubble Washcloth in 100% cotton yarn. Place them together with the popcorn stitch facing out. Cut a long piece of yarn and start sewing in a zig-zag motion in and out, under the stitches. pull slightly but not too tight or it will gather scrunch up. FO and weave in the ends! Super easy and I feel it gives the kitchen a nice look!
