Bath House Spa Crochet Washcloths (Free Pattern)

Crochet Washcloth Free Pattern

One of the first projects I posted to the blog was for little beginner crochet washcloths  (and I mean TRUE beginner washcloths, like if you’re trying to crochet for the first time) that were all done in single crochet stitches.  Washcloths are awesome because you get the satisfaction of a finished product in a short amount of time. These are my favorite ones to use for my daughter’s bath time, so I decided to make more.  I made this set a bit fancier, but of course it’s easy because that’s the way I like it.   🙂

Picot Cotton Crochet Washcloth

I always make these with 100% cotton, and it seems that the Lily Sugar N Cream is most available to me, so that’s what I used. If I were making them for a newborn, I’d want a softer cotton like Lion Brands Organic cotton yarn that I’ve used and seen at Jo Ann Crafts.  That yarn is absurdly soft and luxurious.  But with a toddler or child, I like a bit more texture to the cotton to get any grimeys (is that a word?) off the face. 😉

Just because I use them for my daughter doesn’t mean that they wouldn’t make a great gift for just about anyone! The color can go with any décor, and these make special dish cloths for the kitchen as well. Think hostess gifts, baby shower, housewarming parties, am I right?

Picot Crochet Dish Cloth

Usually I take a few pictures to give you an idea of how it looks as it’s being made, but I was making these on the go and didn’t have my camera. I promise more pics in the future.  This is made with a series of simple single crochet stitches and double crochet stitches. So simple!

You will need:

One Skein Worsted Weight Cotton (I used Lily Sugar N Cream in Ecru)

Size G Crochet Hook (Use a Size H if you like it a bit bigger and more “open”)


Tapestry Needle to Weave in Ends


Size: Approximately 6 inches x 6 inches

Level: Easy

 Gauge: Not Important


Crochet Washcloth Pattern

Chain 23

Row 1 (Sc, 2dc) in second chain from hook, * skip next two chains, (sc, 2dc) in next ch; repeat from * across to last 3 chs, skip next 2 chs, sc in last ch.

Row 2 until piece measures 6 inches tall:  Chain 1, turn; (sc, 2dc) in first sc, *skip next two dc, (sc, 2dc) in next sc; repeat from * to last 3 stitches, skip next 2 dc, sc in last sc.

Tie off, and weave in ends.

**OKAY for your second row, you might be like ” It doesn’t seem like I can skip 2 chains and make a stitch in the last single crochet.”  It is hard to see that first stitch as it appears to be on the side. Put it through that stitch that appears on the side if you have trouble seeing it. 🙂

I like these because they kind of look vintage, but they are sort of hip and pretty for a country modern home. Country modern, is that such a thing? Well if it’s not, it should be. 😉

  1. I love using a crocheted dishcloth! They are the best. I found a flower pattern in a Sugar and Cream book and have stuck with it and can make them so quickly now. I might throw a ball of some sugar and cream in my bag for my road trip this weekend.
    Working on your yellow spring scarf now with black!

    1. Yay! I think black will look so modern. Love the pics you posted to my facebook page. The purple yarn is so pretty, and those little flower scrubbies are too cute.

  2. These special wash cloths do make a very special gift for anyone. I certainly know they are my favorites!

    1. If you want to make it as a potholder, I would definitely make it with a size g hook, and do a back side as well. I’d do a square of single crochet and attach it to the back. It’s a slightly “open” pattern, so by itself it wouldn’t make a perfect potholder. It will make a pretty one though if done right! Thanks for the idea!

  3. Thank you for sharing this pattern. I’m making dishcloths for Christmas gifts. I like this size and gorgeous pattern!!!!!

    1. So sorry you’re having trouble. I wish I had the time to do videos for all of my patterns as people sometimes prefer to see it done ( I do too sometimes!). I just simply don’t have time to make videos and do what it takes to edit, upload etc. Sometimes there are videos that I can post from YouTube that are already up, but I don’t know of any for this stitch.

    1. What some people have done is added single crochet “rows/rounds” around the dishcloth. That may add to the size. I’d make two sc stitches in the corner stitch. 🙂

    2. I made some of mine larger. These are beautiful and can NOT stop making them! I added 3 more stitches per cluster. So if you want to make it 3 clusters wider then add 9 more chain stitches and then 1 more stitch. For 4 more clusters wider add 12 more stitches plus 1 more. Turns out right every time. Just make the same amount of rows to make it square. 😀

  4. How can I print this pattern without the adds showing up. Would love to be able to take it with me

    1. Hi Jamie! Right now most people just copy and paste the pattern into a Word document and print from there. There is also a website called printfriendly.com that helps you print from blogs like mine. I hope this helps!

  5. Hip modern country is what my sister’s new bathroom is! I’m making 4 for her. The white is done and I love the pattern. Perfect to bring at choir practice! Thank you!

  6. I love this pattern. I’m doing it right now, how beautiful it looks with just a few simple stitches. Thank you so so much for sharing.

  7. I have been looking for this pattern for years! So glad I stumbled onto your site. This is definitely a retro pattern. My Aunt made this as pot holders over 40 years ago. Thank you so much for posting it!!!

  8. Love this pattern, Thanks! If I wanted to increase the size to 8” or 9”, how many chain stitches to start it?
