The Pebble Washcloth is apart of the Coastline Washcloth Collection. This includes 4 crochet washcloth patterns, that are incorporate unique textures while maintaining ease in crocheting them.
The herringbone stitch has been a staple stitch for me for years. I actually almost made a herringbone washcloth to be apart of the Stitch Sampler Collection, but ultimately opted for other designs. However, as I was planning this collection, incorporating the herringbone stitch only felt natural.
This washcloth is proof that even the simplest designs require quite a bit of work and problem. My first attempt at the pattern was less than thrilling. The fabric was too tight and stiff, especially in comparison to the other washcloths in this collection. Because each washcloth uses different stitches, there will be a variation in density and drape. But I still wanted to try to maintain some consistency within the collection, so I started over with this design. After several modifications, I was very pleased to have developed a design that I was much happier with and that was consistent with the rest of the collection.
For this collection I used my FAVORITE 100% cotton yarn, WeCrochet’s Dishie. This yarn is gold. It is very soft allowing it to be gentle against skin, while it is durable allowing it to withstand so much use. Washcloths I’ve made from this yarn are washed on a weekly basis, and they still look incredible after two years!
Even though all of these washcloth patterns are released as individual patterns on the blog, you can purchase all four patterns for the price of one!
