Textured Crochet Washcloth Pattern Tutorial – Sprig Stitch

Textured Crochet Washcloth Pattern Tutorial – Sprig Stitch

Thank you so much for sharing!

Today, I am sharing a crochet washcloth pattern! I wanted to share a really textured and luxurious option for this washcloth pattern and opted for the sprig stitch. I wanted this handmade washcloth to have that “wow” factor so that you could include in some gifts this holiday season or throughout the year (ie Mother’s Day, birthdays etc.). Add a candle, handmade soap or some bath salts to round out this lovely gift!

What type of yarn for crochet washcloths?

Cotton is the best option for crochet washcloth patterns. It’s sturdy enough to hold up in the wash and with repeated use. I also used a cotton yarn with a “scrub off” texture for extra skin exfoliation or cleaning power. Click the links below to find some cotton yarn!

The Sprig Stitch

This stitch is just a series of single crochets and chains, but it is often called the sprig stitch. Here is how it looks on the Lilly and cream scrub off yarn. If you are a beginner, I don’t recommend this yarn. I would pick the standard cotton first and then try the more textured style.

I loved how this pattern looked but at first attempt, I am having trouble understanding row 3. Granted, I am stil learning the art of reading patterns and new advanced stitches. So, I am placing the Scx2,chx2,scx2 stitch in the chain of the SCx2chx2scx2 of the previous row or in the space between those formentioned chrochet stitches. Help
