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.
- 1 ball of cotton yarn
- hook size from yarn package
- yarn needle
- small scissors
- Gather materials.
- Start with a slip knot and chain 39. (Sprig Stitch is done in a multiple of 4+3)
- Single crochet (sc) in the 4th chain from the hook, chain 2. Place 2 single crochets in the next chain, skip 2 chains. Create 2 sc in the next chain, ch 2, 2 sc in next chain, skip 2 chains and repeat to the end of the foundation chain.
- At the end of the row there should be 2 chains left. skip 1 and sc in the last chain. (The worst part is done! The rest is a breeze).
- Chain 3, turn work and place (2 sc, ch 2, 2sc) in each chain 2 space from the previous row. End with a sc in the space formed by the ch 3 turning chain. Ch 3 and turn after every row. Complete 28 rows or as many as desired.
- Once you reach the desired size, fasten off and weave in the tails.
If you would like to make this washcloth larger or smaller, your foundation chain needs to be a multiple of 4 + 3.
