10 Easy Crochet Washcloth Patterns For Beginners

Round up of easy crochet washcloth patterns that are quick and easy to make. These patterns are great small projects for beginners to discover and practice new stitches.

Crochet washcloth patterns are very often underrated. However, I think these are great projects for a number of reasons.

Firstly, they are so quick to make. You can literally finish a crochet washcloth from start to finish in a matter of one evening.

Secondly, they are great projects for practising and learning new stitches. You do not have to waste time just making a swatch that you will later frog. Make something useful and practical like a crochet washcloth.

They also make great quick gifts. I think a combination of a crochet washcloth with a handmade bar of soap would make a great present. It does not have to be a special occasion, maybe just because…

Because let’s be honest, sometimes those “just because” gifts are so special and make you feel really loved.

Crochet washcloths also make a great item for a craft stall. Whether you do it occasionally or regularly, these items would make great selling items all year round.

And last, but not least, they are very environmentally friendly. You can reuse them and wash them many times before you throw them away. This saves on using items like sponges and other items that you use a few times and dispose of them.
