So I am relatively new to craftster, joined about a month ago and have been mostly lurking. I crochet and stencil shirts, cross-stitch and make the odd jewelry piece...I am currently working on a big crochet project that I wanted to take a break from, so I decided to try my hand at some spiral tawashi I have seen on the boards. Not much for my first post but once I am sure I know how to post properly I will post more! My tawashi aren't super round like ones I have seen...any tips from those who have made them?



(Apparently I am not allowed to post a pic until I have posted 10 times!)

I haven't made any yet, but I love yours! Did you use acrylic or cotton?

I used Bernat Handicrafter Cotton, with a 5.5mm hook even though the pattern calls for a 5.0 because I didn't have a 5.0 lying around. The cotton washes up better, and the ridges have some good scrubbing power Smiley

Sweet I like them. One day I wanna try them. I like yours and the color you used. Oh and another thing we have the same laptop lol. My mom is so jealous that I have the extra number pad on the side.

There will always be people who say mean words  because you are different, and sometimes their minds cannot be changed. There are many more people who do not judge others based on how they look or where they are from. THOSE are the people whose WORDS truly matter.

They're super easy because the only stitches are chains and single crochet in back loops...and i ♥ my laptop haha

Hi! I'm new here as well (I've been browsing this website for long but never created an account till now)  Smiley
Your tawashis look very cute! But I have a question. Aren't you supposed to make them out of acrylic yarn? I'm not sure myself, and I would like to crochet a few myself, but I can't seem to decide what yarn to use...

I used cotton because that's what I use for my dishcloths...I feel like acrylic wouldn't wash as well or last as long. I suppose you could make them out of acrylic though and they would be more abrasive for scrubbing...if you make some out of it let me know how they wash up!
