Prettiest Lil’ Crocheted Washcloths

After knitting or crocheting large projects, I like to give myself a break. And by give myself a break, I mean knit or crochet something new. He he! I recently finished the Baja Blanket Sweater Crochet Pattern and was ready for a small project, so another dishcloth sounded refreshing. This pattern is so easy and it turns out to be a useful, unique and feminine looking little kitchen or bath helper. This washcloth might also make a beautiful alternative to baby booties or hats to gift at a baby shower. Buy a super soft 100% cotton yarn and those washcloths will be treasured by a new mama! You can use these in the kitchen, but I plan to use mine for my daughter in the bath.  She’s been raised on knit and crocheted washcloths in the bath. 🙂  Some of the washcloths that we’ve used since she was a wee baby are starting to look a bit worn so it’s about time to whip up some new ones.

Like I said, the pattern is super easy and is perfect for watching Netflix and zoning out while you crochet.  You will simply alternate treble crochet stitches and single crochet stitches. I love the bumpy, bubbly texture that it makes, and it works up so easily. I would say that it’s even easier than the Farm House Washcloths that were recently shared on the blog! Do you know the official name of this stitch? Let me know in the comments section if you do!

You will find the written pattern below, but you may also want to watch the little video tutorial that I made for this.  You can see the Full Video Tutorial HERE:

Pick up some scrap yarn, and let’s get to it! 😉

You will need:

1 skein worsted weight 100% cotton yarn (You can find this online or at any craft store that carries yarn. I’ve even found it at Wal-Mart. Hobby Lobby has a wonderfully 100% cotton that’s super soft for baby)

Size H 5.0 mm or G Crochet Hook


Tapestry Needle to weave in ends


Skills & Abbreviations:


sc- single crochet

tr – treble crochet


Prettiest Lil’ Crochet Washcloth Pattern:

Chain 24 stitches

Row 1: Sc in 2nd ch from hook and in each rem ch across; chain 1, turn

Row 2: Sc in first sc; *tr in next sc, sc in next sc; repeat from * across

Row 3: Sc in each st across; ch 1, turn

Repeat rows 2 & 3 for the rest of the pattern and until your piece measures 9 inches long (or as long as you’d like)

Now you can make a border around the edges with just one round of single crochet stitches. Tie off and weave in your ends!

Isn’t this a fun stitch pattern? I just love patterns that look complicated but take very little effort.  (Am I a lazy crocheter?!) You can certainly make these washcloths with any colors that you like.  It’s a great way to use scrap yarn from past projects and a budget friendly way to whip out some quick gifts. 🙂

I hope that you’ve enjoyed this and happy crochet’n and Netflix’n!

  2. aHi. I am so into doing washcloths and face washer patterns. I love the farmhouse washcloth and thanks for the new pattern you sent to me .

  3. Hi again. My name is Kaye.I watched a tutorial you did for a washcloth you did with anobbly stitch you weren’t sure of the name of the stitch.I am in Australia the stitch you were doing was a treble which you yarn over twice before starting the stitch.With our treble it’s yarn over once at the beginning.then the double treble stitch which I thought may be equivalent to us is yarn over three times before the stitch.I hope you can get what I’m trying to say. It’s a bit hard to explain.

  4. Like your sweet site and am going to try these sweet wash clothes later on today. Thank you very much!

  5. Hi! It’s lovely! I started making a piece utilizing pretty much the same stitches. In that pattern the stich was called the “no bobble bobble stitch.” As in, a faux bobble stitch. =)

  6. I love this pattern!! Do you mind if we sell what we make? I will provide a link to your blog and give you credit for the pattern of course.

    1. Hi Sarah! I’m so glad that you like this pattern!

      And yes, absolutely! And thanks for thinking of crediting my blog. I really appreciate it!

  7. Hi – I, too, love these simple, quick dish/wash cloths – they do work well as sturdy washcloths.

  8. What brand of cotton yarn do you typically use? I have a cheap brand and I’m having a really hard time working with it. Is cottib yarn always harder to work with? It’s probably just me as I’m new to crocheting. Thanks!

    1. I think cotton is more difficult. Sometimes it splits easily. I don’t use anything fancy, just the worsted weight 100% cotton you find at the stores (Lily Sugar & Cream for example) Wal Mart sometimes has skeins of their own brand as well.

  9. Thanks for providing a nice relaxing pattern. I’ve just started my washcloth mania and I like this one the most so far

  10. Have seen this question asked but not answered yet. Is there a sc at the end of Row 2 also. In the video it shows doing one but the directions don’t say to do one. Just curious. Thanks

  11. I’m making this washcloth right now …I really like the pattern…I’m doing it in white cotton it looks very high end I’m making it to add to a basket I made for a friend. Thank You for sharing….

  12. Hi Jessica!
    I just became a member. I really wanted the washcloth patterns and a few others that I don’t find to download.
    Can you tell me why?
    No washcloths. Spa mat,etc.
    I really wanted those too. Am
    I missing something???

    1. Hi Valerie!
      Sorry for any confusion! The patterns in my the membership are my patterns available on Etsy, not the tutorials for washcloths etc. Many of these washcloths are old projects from my blog and more “tutorial” style than tested patterns, and therefore aren’t listed on Etsy or my library. Will you shoot me an email about this? I’ll make sure to get you a refund since there was a misunderstanding. It’s for premium patterns from the blog and not the basic tutorials. Basically, if you go to my Etsy shop, all of those patterns are found in the library.
