Does anyone use cotton crochet baby wipes?<br><br>
I have made a few for around the house... now making some for the baby. Wondering if anyone else uses crochet wipes for their baby and how they work out.<br><br>
Any tips?

I've only used them for around the house. I think they would work pretty well for baby wipes, but I'd stay away from double or treble crochet since poo can come through the holes onto your hands. I have a pattern for cotton hooded towels and washcloths...I've been meaning to try it out, but now I can't seem to find the pattern.

I haven't made them, but I have some cotton yarn from knitpicks.com that's really soft and fluffy--can't remember what it's called offhand, but I think it would make nice wipes. Also, Bernat Cottontots is nice and fluffy. I agree that they need to be done in sc for a more solid fabric. I also like to do alternating frontpost/backpost sc for more solid fabric.

I figured out the hyperlinks (finally), I liked it better the other way too.<br><br>
I just did a quick search on Crochet Pattern Central for washcloth patterns, those were the cute ones that came up.
