Here’s a crochet pattern I came up with for a washcloth or dishcloth that works up quick and, as the title suggests, is super simple to make.
Now, you all are probably saying: “Michelle, enough with the crochet patterns already! Especially the super simple ones! If you’re going to keep throwing out so many crochet patterns, at least do something different and a little more complex!” And I hear you. The only reason I did this one is I needed a birthday present for a family member on short notice, and since I already had the Super Simple Soap Saver worked up, I thought combining them with a bar of soap would make a nice gift.
Don’t get me wrong: I like crochet patterns with a bunch of different cool stitches as much as the next person. But it’s nice to have some patterns that are simple and quick to work up when you just want to zone out and crochet on autopilot for the therapeutic effect, or when you need to put together a quick gift like I did. I mean, really, who would not be happy to get something like this for a present?

And, I promise, no more crochet projects for a while.
