Crochet Facecloth for Self Care
It is really important to take care of yourself and very easy to forget to take care of yourself. As a mom of three kids, I understand very well that you can’t take the best care of others if you aren’t taking care of yourself. So grab your hook and whip up a lovely set of washcloths just for you.
Babies, preteens, and adults all need washcloths for one reason or another. I decided to work up this washcloth pattern in three different sizes so you have the perfect size for the job at hand.
There is a standard washcloth size for most jobs. You can make this pattern a face scrubby size for daily face washing or makeup removal. I also made a unique preteen washcloth size for my son who is just starting to get the first signs of acne.
The Premium Ad-Free PDF Pattern
Below you will find the free pattern with all the instructional photos and videos needed to complete the pattern, but I am also aware that several of us like to crochet on the couch, in the car, or in bed with a printout of the pattern. This is why I also offer a nicely formatted large font PDF version of the pattern that can be purchased on Etsy or Ravelry. You can print the pattern and take it on the go with you or tuck it into your project bag.

Self-Care Crochet Facecloth Pattern
-Written in US terms.
– I do not count my CH1, turning chain, as a stitch.
– The Crochet Facecloth pattern is copyrighted by Winding Road Crochet.
– The sizing is determined by the starting chain and the number of rows worked to create the center section and the number of rows worked on the border.
Part 1: Center of Facecloth
For a Standard Washcloth CH 28
For a Kid’s Washcloth CH 16
For a Face Scrubby CH 8
Row 1: SC into the 2nd CH from the hook. SC in each ST across. (27 STs, 15 STs, 7 STs)
Row 2-?: CH1, turn, (SC, DC) into first ST. Skip a ST, *(SC, DC) into next ST, Skip a ST* repeat from *to* until one stitch remains unworked. SC in last ST.
Note: Remember when working the last repeat that you end the repeat with skipping a stitch then work a single crochet into the last stitch.
Repeat until you have 5 total rows for a Face scrubby, 12 total rows for a child’s washcloth, and 22 total rows for a standard washcloth.
Final Center Row: CH1, turn, Work a SC into each ST. Do not fasten off.
Part 2: Facecloth Border
Single Crochet Border Row: CH 1, rotate your work so that you are working down the sides of the rows. Work one SC into the sides of each row. CH2, Rotate your work until you are working into the opposite side of the starting chain, Work 1 SC into the opposite side of each starting chain. CH2, rotate your work until you are working into the other side of the rows. Work 1 SC into the side of each row. CH2, rotate your work until you are working into the Final Center Row. Work 1 SC into each ST of the final center row. CH1, SC to the first ST.
This last single crochet acts as a chain for the corner, but by using a single crochet we will start our next row in the center of the corner instead of at the side of the corner.
Textured Border Rows 1-?: CH1, turn, Work a SC into the first corner, Work a SC in the BLO of each ST down this side until you reach the CH2 corner. *(SC, CH2, SC) into the CH2 corner. Work a SC in the BLO of each ST down this side until you reach the next CH2 corner.* repeat from *to* a total of 3 times until you reach the first corner. SC into the first corner, CH1, SC to the first ST.
Repeat the Textured Border row until you have 3 border rows for a Face scrubby, 4 border rows for a child’s washcloth, and 5 border rows for a standard washcloth. This count includes the first single crochet border row.
Once you complete the last border row, you will fasten off and weave in your ends.
Now your Crochet self-care facecloth is complete and ready to be enjoyed. They work up fast and make a great gift.
