Crochet Shell Wave Washcloth

12 Aug

Happy August Everyone!

 

Hope you are having a great summer so far.

 

Well it’s the 12th of yet another month, so time for another one of my original patterns for you.  I created this a few years back for a friend who had moved into a new home, and had an ocean theme for their bathroom.

 

I thought it would be a great pattern to share during what I consider the hottest month of the year.  Hope it makes you think of the beach, with the shells and waves found in this pattern.  Hope you are trying to stay cool during this last stretch of summer.  I personally can’t wait for autumn…it is my favorite season.  What is your favorite season?  And what have you been working on?  How are you liking my patterns?  I’d love to hear from you!🙂

 

Here is the pattern as promised.🙂
