I love crocheting washcloths. They are a great way to practice new stitches, learn how to change colors and not to mention how cute and pretty they look. When I was first learning how to crochet, I made so many washcloths! They are easily one of the most functional items you can crochet.
These washcloths are crocheted using the Floret Stitch. I love the way this stitch looks. The “Floret” look is made by alternating the double crochet and slip stitch in the same row. I thought this would be a perfect project for Mother’s Day. They also make great gifts!
You can crochet these washcloths in a solid color or you can mix it up and play with different color combinations to match your kitchen or bathroom!
Below is a quick tutorial and pattern using the crochet Floret Stitch.
Floret Stitch Washcloth Pattern
I used a combination of Lily Sugar ‘N Cream and Premier Home Cotton. Any worsted weight cotton yarn will work for this pattern.
4.5mm crochet hook
Double Crochet (dc)
Slip Stitch (ss)
FLORET STITCH WASHCLOTH PATTERN
The pattern is worked in multiples of 3. You then add 2 more for your turning chain.
Row 1 – Dc in the 4th ch from the hook and each remaining ch across. (27)
Row 2 – Ch.1 turn, dc in the first stitch, ss in the next. *dc in the next stitch, ss in the next.* Repeat *til end of row. Your last st of the row will be in the top of the ch 3 of previous row. (27)
Row 3 – Ch.2 turn, dc in the first stitch and each stitch across. (27)
what your work should look like after 3 rows
Rows 4 thru 16 – Repeat rows 2 and 3 respectively
Row 17 – Repeat row 3
I added a border of sc around each dishcloth. I crocheted 3 sc in the corners to round them out.
If you would like to make your crochet washcloth longer then just continue alternating rows 2 and 3 to your desired length. If you would like to make it wider then make sure your starting chain is in a multiple of 3 and then add 2 more chains.
Weave in end(s) and your finished! Easy, right?
