The Broken Rib Crochet Washcloth was inspired by my love for the broken rib knit stitch. I figured out how to get a similar look in crochet and it makes me so happy! This washcloth has great texture so it feels great and looks pretty as well. Pamper yourself while adding some lovely style to your home spa supplies. This pattern is listed as intermediate, however that is only because post stitches are considered intermediate. If you can make post stitches, then this should be an easy pattern for you.
