Sometime over the last 10 years we’ve gone from beige to gray as the hottest neutral color for your home, but now greige is popping up everywhere. Have you seen it? This day at the spa easy crochet washcloth pattern uses the new neutral – greige – the perfect blend of beige and gray. You can build your own at home spa kit with these 11 essentials perfect for a home spa – you know this spa washcloth is one of them!
The greige yarn caught my eye while I was strolling through Michaels one day. (Of course I was in the yarn section.) Since I haven’t been able to find it online at any other retailer, I think the greige line might be an exclusive Michaels color. There is even an ombre greige at Michaels.com which I didn’t see in the store!
The easy crochet washcloth pattern uses a half double crochet v-stitch. I love v-stitches for the versatility and texture they give the fabric. The hdc v-stitch gives a bit more of an open and flexible fabric than the spider stitch (a single crochet v-stitch) like was used in the Crochet Country Dishcloth.
If you struggle with stitch placement as you are working on the v-stitches, check out the how to crochet the V-stitch tutorial. Although that was written for double crochet v-stitches, the stitch placement and general idea are still the same.
