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 ;).
