Crochet Bath Mat (US Version)

from thredHED
(4) Name: 'Crocheting : Crochet Bath Mat (US Version)
Crochet Bath Mat (US Version) Crocheted Bath Mat

Pattern Description:

I had in my 'come in handy' stash a pack of cotton string. Basic but soft, and a nice neutral colour, which when crocheted with a double strand gave a lovely soft but meaty thickness - in fact perfect for a bath mat.
A Crocheted Bath Mat in a simple ladder-style pattern using basic stitches it has a textured stripe which looks stylish in a contemporary homespun way, and the 100% cotton content combined with the construction gives it just the right amount of absorbency.
A neat picot border finishes it off nicely. A little bit unusual, it's an expensive and unique looking finishing touch - but a real bargain. Would look particularly good with a free standing bath.
It istotally washable and wears well. It can be made in any cotton providing the correct thickness of yarn is used and the correct tension can be acheived. in different colourways - the options are endless. The construction is very simple and would be great for a beginner. If you can't get hold of the cotton string, a suitable equivalent would be two strands of chunky gauge cotton, or one of bulky although, in this case, the softness, tension and amount required may differ due to gauge and fibre content.
