Springtime Wash Cloth Crochet Pattern

Springtime Wash Cloth Crochet Pattern

by Alison Stapleton

To have cotton washcloths, or flannels in your home is kind to the environment.

Make some for every member of your family in different colours.

I typically use my washcloth once and then launder it in the washing machine.

Every day freshness guaranteed.

What You Will Need

Bernat Handicrafter Cotton or similar weight yarn [4]. More on yarn weights here.

One ball in the colour of your choice.

Crochet hook G (4 mm). More on crochet hooks here.


14 stitches and 7 rows to 4″ x 4″ (10cm x 10cm).


8 3/4 inches x 8 3/4 inches (22cm x 22cm).

Crochet Terminology

This pattern uses USA or Canadian crochet stitch notation and not the UK or South African terminology.

This means that a double crochet (dc) is made as follows:

Yarn over, and insert the hook into the ring, stitch or gap, pull through (three loops on hook),

Yarn over, and pull through two loops on your hook (two loops on hook), yarn over and pull through the last two loops on your hook.

Only one loop remains on you hook and the double crochet stitch is complete.

Part of the “Refreshing Spa Collection”

A wash cloth (or flannel as we used to call them) is a soft cotton cloth for use in the bathroom.

Each person in your household should have their own cloth and you can make them in co-ordinating colours to suit your bathroom decor.

Because we have four children I made a different colour for each child. Our eldest daughter had blue and white, our son brown and white (tip here; brown is a good colour for little boys), second daughter pink and white and the youngest daughter has purple/magenta and white.

Cotton wash cloths can be well – washed in the machine and come back fresh each time.

What you need:

  • Two balls of Bernat Handicrafter Cotton one ball in white and one ball in a contrasting colour this will make two wash cloths as shown in the photo. I have used white and turquoise.
  • 5mm crochet hook.
  • Tapestry sewing needle to sew in the ends.



This pattern is at the beginner’s level.


You need to know the following crochet stitches:

  • Chain (ch)
  • Single crochet (sc)
  • Double crochet (dc)
