Beginner Crochet Cotton Washcloth Tutorial

Thank you so much for sharing!

Hi Everyone! I’ve got a beginner crochet cotton washcloth tutorial for you today! Do you follow me on instagram? We have lots of fun over there. The other day I was showing this washcloth I had made and I got SO many requests for a tutorial, so here it is! It looks like a complicated stitch, but it’s not. Very beginner friendly and quick! Scroll to the bottom to see the video tutorial!

Beginner Crochet Cotton Washcloth



  1. Start with a slip knot
  2. Create your foundation chain, I recommend 7-9 inches for a washcloth. Feel free to make adjustments. The multiples do not matter for this project.
  3. In the 3rd chain from hook, place a double crochet (dc)
  4. In the next foundation chain, place a single crochet (sc)
  5. Alternate the dc, sc all the way to the end of the foundation chain. This completes your first row.
  6. If you end with a sc: chain 2, turn your work and place a dc in the first stitch and continue with the same alternating stitch. If you end with a dc: chain 1, turn work and sc in the first stitch. *See video for visual reference if needed.
  7. Continue until you make the washcloth your desired size.
  8. Fasten off and weave in ends with your yarn needle.

What do you think? I hope you enjoy this quick, easy and practical beginner crochet cotton washcloth tutorial. We have a ton of these around the house and they are so great! Not only for cleaning, but for practicing stitches and using up yarn ;).

Hi Melanie! I'm totally new to quilting and have been even more inspired to start because of your videos. It looks like it would be so much fun putting it all together and would be great gifts for people. I was wondering if you figured a way to sell your projects for a reasonable price, especially when there are places that sell bed sets for cheaper than the cost of the materials. I'm not expecting this to be my sole income, but I'd like for people to use and enjoy what I make. Any tips are appreciated. Thanks!
