Most people are content with the traditional granny square. It’s recognizable right off, even by beginners. But what if you don’t want the gaps? What if you’d like a more solid look, but the freedom that granny squares give you when creating your masterpiece?

My name is Barb, and I started doing crafts during high school while taking a home economics course. The class taught me how to crochet, knit, cross-stitch, macrame and sew. I have been doing these crafts for over 35 years and I still love to learn new techniques and challenging myself. I don’t know everything, but I love to learn and I’m always excited to try new things.

I love to make washcloths, not only because they are useful and are so much better than the rough ones you buy at the store, but because they give me an opportunity to try new stitches. Whether it’s crocheting or knitting, making a washcloth allows you to practice a new stitch or one you have not used in a while without making a huge commitment. You can make a small mistake here and there and no one will ever know. Once you finish the washcloth you can confidently take on a larger project because you’ve gotten some great practice.
