Free Crochet Pattern: Flower Tawashi
The inspiration for this project struck after reading in Martha Stewart's Homekeeping Handbook that the FDA has banned the use of sponges from commercial kitchens. I designed the tawashi to mimic the feel of a sponge but without all of the ickiness that comes from traditional sponges. Wash them regularly in the washer to keep clean.
The pattern is easy, works up super quick, and is ideal for last minute gifts or simply brightening up the home. The pattern has a versatile design that lends well to either solid colors or a flower motif. The tawashi features a nubby texture with a hanging loop and optional hand strap. It is crocheted in two separate pieces, then joined together with a single crochet border. The front is worked in joined rounds while the back is worked in spiral rounds.Continue reading
