Week 2: Cluster Drop Stitch

Well, with this beautiful project I have managed to accomplish not 1 but 2 different firsts for myself in the world of crocheting….  1. Crocheting with Cotton, and 2. Crocheting a Wash Cloth.

With this project I have also found my new love. Cotton.  I love it!  So can’t wait to do my next washcloth or to find some other amazing project to use this wonderful fiber with!

Special Stitches – Spike Cluster Stitch  Tutorial by Moogly Blog

Special Notes: I chose to carry the yarn up the side of the project (pictured below), Tutorial by Yarn Obsession.  If you chose to finish off for every color change you will have lots of ends to work in.  When working the edging I made sure to crochet those carries into the edging.
