Over the last three weeks, we have shared free crochet patterns for Crochet Bath Pouf, Soap Saver, and Face Scrubbie as a part of the Dreamsicle Spa Set. Now, it’s time for the next pattern in the series, Crochet Washcloth!
Free crochet patterns for Dreamsicle Spa Set:
A final addition to our Dreamsicle Spa Set, the Crochet Washcloth is easy to make and works up quickly. The washcloth is soft and gentle on the skin and you can use it over and over again! The textured design makes it perfect for scrubbing and exfoliation. The washcloth is eco-friendly and a great sustainable addition to your DIY spa set.
The Crochet Washcloth is an easy pattern as it does not require any complex shaping. Along with the basic stitches, to create a slightly different texture, you make Single Crochet (sc) in Front Loop Only (FLO).
The Washcloth free crochet pattern uses a super-absorbent cotton yarn that is durable and can withstand multiple uses. Cotton yarn is perfect for this project as it can hold its shape when it soaks water and dries out quickly after use.
A Washcloth is not only an excellent addition to any Spa Set but it is also an excellent last-minute-gift crochet project. Just combine it with the gift of some luxurious soaps, shower gels or any other body care product, the handmade Crochet Washcloth will be a lovely addition!
Size of Finished Washcloth
The finished Washcloth measures 9.5″ x 9.5″ (or 24 cm x 24 cm).
- 4.5 mm (US 7) crochet hook from Clover
- Any worsted weight (medium / #4 / 8-ply) cotton yarn in the color of your choice. We used Lily Sugar n Cream in Creamsicle color. This yarn is a good choice as it is 100% cotton and has a huge variety of colors to suit your taste.
- Tapestry needle to weave in the ends
10 sts = 2.75″ (or 7.0 cm) in single crochet
- The pattern is written in US terms.
- Starting ch 1 does not count as a stitch.
- It is preferable to use a cotton yarn as it will be soft on your skin and of course, it’s good for the environment!

Row 2: sc in FLO in same st as ch 1, * sc in FLO in next st; rep from * to end, ch 1, turn. (36 sc)
Row 3: sc in same st as ch 1, * sc in next st; rep from * to end, ch 1, turn (36 sc)
Row 4 – 34: rep Row 2 – 3
Do not fasten off yet.
Row 35: 3sc in same st as ch 1, sc in next 34 sts of the top edge of washcloth. Without turning at the end of the row, continue working on the left edge of the washcloth. Make 32 sc evenly spaced along the left edge, 3 sc in the corner st, sc in next 34 sts, 3 sc in the corner st, 32 sc evenly spaced along the right edge of the washcloth, sl st into 1st sc.
Note: Lay the washcloth flat and make sure that the edges don’t curl up or are too wavy. If that happens, then you need to adjust the number of stitches picked up on the left and right edges of the washcloth. Curling up of edges means that you have picked up too few stitches on that edge and extra wavy edges imply that you have picked up some extra stitches on that edge.
Fasten off and weave in the ends.
