My First Crochet Washcloth- Free Pattern

20180622_150411-e1529704299417.jpg

Well, this isn’t MY first crochet washcloth, as I’ve made millions of them (ok, maybe just 20 or so, lol), but I wanted to publish an easy pattern to go along with my SC Tutorial.  Since washcloths are usually one of the first projects a new crocheter makes, I thought this would be an appropriate pattern. Everyone can use a washcloth, right?

My First Crochet Washcloth

Free Pattern

© Amanda Bryant 2018

Materials Used:

Peaches & Creme 100% cotton medium weight (“4”) yarn; 2.5 oz/70.9 g; approx. 120 yards/109 meters- 1 ball- Color “Navy”

size H/ 5 mm crochet hook

scissors

Measuring tape or ruler (to check your gauge as well as the size of the finished piece)

yarn needle (for weaving in yarn tails)

Gauge: 4 sc= 1 inch, 4 rows= 1 inch (hold a ruler or measuring tape next to your work. There should be 4 sc measuring 1 inch, and 4 rows should measure 1 inch. Following the gauge will help to ensure that your washcloth will be the same size as the one in this pattern. If your gauge is larger than what is shown here- for example, you have 3 sc in 1 inch-,  use a smaller crochet hook [try a 4.5 mm hook]. If your gauge is smaller than what is shown here- for example you have 5 sc in 1 inch-, use a larger crochet hook [try a 5.5 mm hook]. Always try to get as close to the correct gauge as possible, especially in garments, so that your work will turn out the same size as shown in the pattern.)

Finished Measurements:  about 9 1/2″ x 9 1/2″ (square)

Abbreviations Used (US Terminology):

Ch- chain

sc- single crochet

FC- foundation chain

RS- Right side (of work)

WS- Wrong side (of work)

Instructions:

Ch 35,

Row 1 (RS)- make 1 sc in the 2nd chain from the hook, and make 1 sc in each of the next ch’s of the FC, ch 1, turn (34 sc)

Row 2 (WS)- make 1 sc in the first sc, and make 1 sc in each of the next sc across to the end of the row, ch 1, turn (34 sc)

Repeat Row 2 until 9 1/2 inches long (Or desired length), finishing with a WS row (your last row worked will be a WS wrong row).

And there you have it! Your first washcloth! Congratulations!
