These crocheted washcloths are fantastic.  This is a simple pattern and is a quick easy project. They are washing machine and dryer safe (colours will fade and this is normal).  They are durable enough to be used to wash your dishes but soft enough to also wash your baby.

Crocheted Washcloths

Materials Needed:

  • 5.00 mm (H) crochet hook
  • 1 small skein (ball) of cotton yarn – 50 grams
  • I use Bernat Handicrafter Cotton
  • 1 small amount of cotton yarn as a contrast colour (optional)



ch = chain

sc = single crochet

dc = double crochet

sk = skip

sts = stitches

sl st = slip stitch



Ch 25

R1: sk first ch, *1 sc and 1 dc in next ch, sk next ch, repeat from * up until last ch, sc in last ch, ch 1, turn (25 sts)

R2: sk first sc, *1 sc and 1 dc in next dc, sk next sc, repeat from * up until last sc, sc in last sc, ch 1, turn (25 sts)

R3-25: repeat row 2 (do not fasten off)


Outer Edge

Still using your main colour sc evenly along the edge of the entire washcloth (add extra stitches in the corner to make it around – I usually do three total)

End with your main colour with a sl st into first sc


Outer Edge Trim (Optional)

Using your contrasting colour attach anywhere along the outer edge

ch 1, sl st into st, repeat all the way around

sl st into first st when you get all the way around

Fasten of and weave in all your ends
