Washcloths and Scrubbies

In a Crunch Washcloth | Free Crochet Pattern

Today I have a new crochet washcloth pattern for you! You are going to love the stitch pattern and the texture that it creates!

I just love a good wash cloth and not too long ago when I came across this stitch pattern called the crunch stitch, I knew that it would make the perfect crochet washcloth.

The crunch stitch is a simple pattern made up of single crochet stitches and slip stitches.  Because it is worked using these shorter stitches the fabric created is quite dense and sturdy.  It creates a mini texture, and one that is tough!

What do you think?

I just love the design it creates! So this crochet washcloth is simple.  The pattern is worked in rows, and once the fabric is the desired length I simply added a single crochet edging.

I have done several other washcloths in the past, one of my other favourites can be found here: Easy Herringbone Dishcloth – Free Crochet Pattern

Medium Weight Crochet Cotton:

I used the Bernat Handicrafter Cotton by Yarnspirations for my project, however you may use any worsted weight 100% crochet cotton of your choice.  Along with the yarn I used a 5 mm crochet hook.

  1. “Edging Rnd 1: Sc in each st across, work 3 rsc in the corner st”
    I don’t think you mean “3 rsc” (I thought it was going to be reverse sc [crab stitch] til I watched the video and read ahead in the pattern).

    1. Hi Rita! Glad you like the pattern the “r” was actually a typo! It should be just an sc 🙂 thanks for catching it and I’ve corrected it!
