The right Crochet Washcloth Size

Before starting this pattern I turned to the internet to find the idle washcloth size. The census said to make the washcloth 12 inches by 12 inches. So I aimed to make this washcloth the idle size. When I was done crocheting the finished evergreen crochet washcloth was HUGE! Or are least it seemed that way to me.

So I decided to try again with a smaller hook to see what happens.

The right Stitch for a Crochet Washcloth

For the first evergreen crochet washcloth, I used the beautiful herringbone half double crochet stitch. It has a beautiful texture. But since I was making a second washcloth, I thought I would make this one a little easier by using a simple single crochet. Both version use the same pattern but give you a slightly different look.

By changing the hook size and the stitch I was able to make a 10 inch by 10 inch washcloth that seemed a little more appropriately sized to me. Overall this crochet washcloth gives you a lot of options on how to make it.

You can print the pattern and take it on the go with you or tuck it into your project bag or basket.

Evergreen Crochet Washcloth Pattern

Notes:
-Written in US terms.
– This pattern can be used in several ways. You can use a Size I 5.5mm hook to create the larger washcloth and a Size H 5mm hook to create the smaller washcloth.
– Except for the starting chain, the body of the washcloth uses only one stitch. You can use the HHDC stitch or work all stitches as SC.
– The CH1 at the beginning of each row is not counted as a stitch.
– Colors will be referred to as white for the background color and green for the tree color. I did not carry my yarn during this project but used two strands of the background color pulling from both sides of one skein.

If you are using single crochet then work 2 extra rows of row 33 to make your washcloth a little taller.

Do not fasten off we will continue with the same color to create the first row of a single crochet border.

Single Crochet Border

We are continuing from where we left off on the last row of the washcloth body.

Row 1: CH1, turn so you are working down the side of the rows. Work 1 SC into the side of each row. CH2 at the corner, turn, SC in the opposite side of each of the starting CH, CH2 at the corner, turn, Work 1 SC into the side of each row. CH2 at the corner, turn, SC in each ST the top of the washcloth. CH2 at the corner and SLST to the first SC. Fasten off.

With your tree color:

Row 2: SLST to any corner, CH1, Work 2 SC into the CH2 corner, BLOSC into each ST down one side, *Work 3 SC into CH2 corner. BLOSC into each ST down the next side.* repeat from *to* a total of 3 times. SC into the starting corner, SLST to first SC.

For Row 3 the center SC of our 3SC in the corner will be our “corner SC”.

Row 3: CH1, Work 2 SC into the Corner SC, BLOSC into each ST down one side, *Work 3 SC into the Corner SC. BLOSC into each ST down the next side.* repeat from *to* a total of 3 times. SC into the starting corner, SLST to first SC.

You can fasten off here or continue repeating Row 3 to make a larger border.

Weave in all your ends and your washcloth is complete.
