The Easy Texture Washcloth is made with simple repeats of chain and single crochet stitches, creating a sturdy surface for scrubbing anything in the bath or kitchen!

This washcloth is worked in rows using chains and single crochet stitches, so the stitch repeat can easily be altered in multiples 2 (1 stitch will count as the turning chain), then work any odd multiple of rows to set the fabric up for the border. 

While this stitch slightly resembles the Linen or Moss stitch in crochet, the stitch pattern does not alternate every row.

That means this stitch pattern has a single row of instructions that repeats throughout, making this a quick and easy pattern to follow with lots of texture.

This is a great pattern because:

  • Washcloths are fun projects to learn new crochet stitches (especially when you follow our crochet chart with the written instructions)!
  • You can use these in the bath or kitchen (plus, they make great gifts)!
  • This project works great with cotton yarns (just one skein or less)!
  • You’ll get to practice a lot of crochet skills: rows, stitch tension, stitch counting and recognition, borders, gauge & size, finishing techniques & more!
