Learn to crochet a face cloth out of soft Queensland Cotton.

Mother’s day gift – do a workshop together

You will make a Face Cloth 12-15cm square with basic crochet stitches – chain, double crochet, and treble (UK/AUS terms). This is a perfect piece to try if you are new to crochet. The surface of the washer is soft yet slightly textured. The perfect handmade gift and suitable for a baby wash cloth.

We will be using beautiful, soft, Queensland grown cotton. The cotton is from St George Qld by Full Circle Fibres, sustainably and ethically sourced cotton. I will have hand dyed the cotton myself, prior to the workshop in a selection of colours. The hand dyeing provides a lovely gentle variation effect through the yarn. Or you may choose to use the perfectly natural cotton undyed is which is also available. You may like to buy additional hand dyed cotton or other products from the Emporium, to take home and make some more.

This workshop is suitable for beginners.

We will supply: – All materials, including 50g of hand dyed Queensland Cotton yarn, crochet hook, and tapestry needle

What you should bring:Note pad, pen and ruler
