Free Crochet Washcloth Pattern

Looking for free crochet washcloth pattern? Then this would have you glued or hooked! Recently, I started making my washcloths and it has been the best felling ever.

Have you made Washcloths before? Either sewing or from Crochets? Well, I’ve done both. This easy crochet washcloth uses the basic stitch with a beautiful texture and in no time, you can master this stitch.

For this crochet washcloth free pattern, you are welcome to use any left over yarn, preferably Double Knit but a worsted weight yarn would do. Generally, I’ve found cotton both 100% and blend perfect for making my crochet washcloth, as they absorb water better.

Since you love this free crochet wash cloth pattern, you might also love my SPA set pattern, which includes the following;

Crochet washcloth, Loofah, face scrubbier and Pouch.

Ever wondered if crochet wash cloths can double as dishcloths? The answer is yes, crochet washcloths can also be used as dish cloth, kitchen towels and even as face scrubs.
