As I mentioned a few times recently, I’ve been frantically working on using up my stash of cotton yarn (in between toddler times of course, which is all the time, so luckily washcloths don’t take up much time to make, lol).
…so here’s another pattern for a textured washcloth 🙂 It’s a very basic pattern, again ideal for a beginner. It consists of only sc and dc stitches, and creates a very simple but pretty texture. It reminds me a bit of a quilted texture, actually.

Peaches & Creme cotton yarn, worsted weight 4-ply, 2.5 oz/70.9 g; approx. 120 yards/109 meters. Colors used- “White” and “Navy”. Each washcloth uses about 90-100 yards of yarn.
5 mm hook
large eye blunt sewing needle for weaving in yarn tails
Gauge: (in pattern) 4 sts and 4 rows= 1 inch
Finished Measurements: approximately 10 inches square
Abbreviations Used (US Terminology):
sc- single crochet
dc- double crochet
RS- right side
WS- wrong side
- the beginning sc of each row is made in the same st as the ch-1 turning chain
- for help with working in the back bump of the starting chain (row 1), click here (working in the back bump makes the starting edge and the finishing edge look the same)
Row 1 (RS)- working in the back bump of the starting chain, sc in the 2nd ch from the hook and in each ch across, ch 1, turn (39 sc)
Row 2 (WS)- make 1 sc in each of the first 2 sc, dc in the next sc, *(sc in the next sc, dc in the next sc), repeat from * across to the last 2 sc, make 1 sc in each of the last 2 sc, ch 1, turn
Row 3 (RS)- make 1 sc in each st across to the end of the row, ch 1, turn
Repeat rows 2 and 3 until washcloth is 10 inches in length, fasten off and weave in yarn tails.
