Washcloth #12 ~ Easy Washcloth

Hello! Today’s post is a super easy washcloth. The pictures really don’t do it justice. The texture is absolutely gorgeous. It has a beautiful dense appearance with a lovely drape.

This washcloth would make the perfect gift for someone moving into their first home or paired with some luxury soap as a birthday gift.

This pattern is also available as an ad-free PDF in my Ravelry store.

DESCRIPTION: This washcloth is super easy. It’s similar to the linen stitch but instead of working your single crochets into chain spaces you work them into the single crochets of the previous row. Enjoy!


Gauge (tension) isn’t very important in this project. For reference, my gauge is 9 SC and 17 rows per 4″.

Play around with hook sizes until you find one that makes a fabric you like. This pattern is written to produce a washcloth that is roughly 8.5″ square.


ch = chain

sk = skip

st = stitch

SC = single crochet

* * = Repeat what is in asterisks the indicated number of times


About 70 yards of Paintbox Yarns Cotton Aran in Pale Lilac or any #4 cotton or cotton blend.

A 4.0 mm (F) hook

Tapestry needle for weaving in ends

Stitch markers if desired.


Ch 40

1. SC in 2nd ch from hook.

*Ch 1, sk 1, SC in next chain.*

Repeat across ending with 1 SC in last ch.

2. Ch 1. SC in first SC.

*Ch 1, SC in next SC*

Repeat across ending with 1 SC in last st.

Repeat 2 until piece reaches stated measurements or your desired size.


Weave in your ends:

Thread the needle with one yarn tail. Weave the needle back through several stitches, about an inch. Turn and go back through, beginning in the second stitch from needle. Repeat once more. Repeat with any other yarn tails. Snip the tails.

And that’s it! This washcloth is really fun to make and it goes very quickly. Perfect for last minute gifts or to stock up your own linen stash!
