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!

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.
