Reusable Cotton Cloths and Basket Crochet Pattern

Reusable Cleaning Cloths and Basket - Crochet Pattern - The Roving Nomad

In an effort to produce less paper waste I designed these cotton cloths with a matching basket. They sit right next to my paper towels so I remember to use these them instead. Washable cotton cloths can replace your hand towels, paper towels, napkins or rags. When dirty, simply throw them in the washer and dryer to make them like new. I promise these little cloths will be your new favorite eco cleaning accessory so plan to make some extras to have on hand - they make great gifts too! 

The best part about this cloth pattern is that there are no ends to weave in! The ends are utilized as a loop for hanging your cloths making them even more versatile.
