Washcloth #6 ~ Double Crochet Lace

Using one of the most basic stitches in crochet allows this pattern to be accessible to most beginners. The lacy fabric appeals to more experienced crocheters. This pattern is also available as an ad-free PDF in my Ravelry store.

DESCRIPTION: This pattern produces a gorgeous, lacy fabric. It would be a wonderful addition to a care package or hostess gift. They would be very welcoming in a guest bathroom. The pattern is easy, but looks intricate. Enjoy!
