Crochet Mitered Square Pattern: Rosettes and Ridges Washcloth

I’m kicking off the second annual Washcloth Crochet Along with CAL Central with the Rosettes and Ridges Washcloth! This striped, crochet mitered square pattern combines bobbles and back loop stitches for a gentle, exfoliating texture. The stripes make it pretty and bold. It’s easy to customize to your preferred washcloth size, too!
