Tie Dye Washcloth Crochet Pattern | Posh Pooch Designs


Tie Dye Washcloth Crochet Pattern

Before we crochet the Tie Dye Washcloth, 
I want to tell you how I Tie Dyed my Yarn.

If you just want the Washcloth Crochet Pattern,


Please, Scroll Down.




I Purchased a 
Tie dye Kit from
 Walmart.






And 
 100% Cotton Yarn.
 You can also
 use Wool, 

 Acrylic 
will 
not
 work




I rolled it out in about 2 oz portions.
 I did not measure it.
 I weighted it on 
my postal scale.



 I folded it half,
and  banded
 it in several places.


Next, I soaked the 
portions in warm water with
 a few table spoons
 of pure baking soda
for about 30 minutes.
Baking Soda helps the 
cotton absorb the dye.

While it was soaking, 
I made the Tie Dyes 
according to the directions
 on the package.


I had a plastic table
 cloth down, 
but I also put paper towels
 to help clean 
up the mess.



I applied the dye to each banded section, 
top and bottom, till the yarn was fully saturated.


I gently slid the portions
 in to plastic bags, 
and set them out in the
 sun for 6 to 8 hours.

I made 4 - A Red, White and Blue,
A Green, White and Red,
                                                     And 2 Rainbows.



I then rinsed
them in cold water
 with few
 tables spoons of
 white vinegar.
The vinegar helps set the colors.

 then I rinse them again 
with warm water,
      until the water ran clear.


I wrung them out,
 removed the bands, 
and wrung them again. 
And Hung them
 out to dry.

You can hang them
 in a window,
 if the sun is not shining.



Once They were completely dry I wound them
 into neat and tidy cakes.
It was easy, and fun, but a long process.
I love the results and have plans to make more.
