Crochet Washcloth Tutorial

I love making these washcloths! They are quick and very easy to make. I use 100% cotton worsted weight yarn, although I have made them with acrylic yarn as well. I prefer using these in the kitchen to clean up with instead of sponges that harbor lots of bacteria. These can be washed over and over again. Below is a super quick tutorial on how to make these pretty washcloths.


Worsted weight yarn
Size H/8 (5mm) crochet hook
Tapestry needle

These washcloths are approximately 8 inches. You can use a larger or smaller hook and adjust the size to your liking, just make sure your beginning chain is an odd number so you can end the row with a single crochet.

Row 1: Ch 25. Skip first st and sc in next stitch, then dc in next st. Repeat this pattern for entire first row, ending with sc. Ch 1, turn.

Rows 2-20: Repeat sc, dc pattern, ending with single crochet at the end of each row. Ch 1, turn.

Sc around edge of washcloth. When rounding a corner, 3 sc in corner stitch so washcloth will lay flat. Tie off ends and weave into your new washcloth!
