Free Pattern: Baby Washcloths

I learned this stitch pattern  from The Crochet Stitch Bible.  So gentle and soft, this beautiful baby washcloth is perfect for the newest addition in your life.

It measures almost square - about 7" by 6.5"

Worsted weight cotton (I love this cotton by Hobby Lobby)
5.5mm (I/9) hook

Ch - chain
Dc - double crochet
Sc - single crochet

Ch 25.
Row 1: 2 dc in 4th ch from hook.  *Skip 2 ch, sc in next ch.  Skip 2 ch, 4 dc in next ch.  Repeat from * to end (ending on a sc).
Row 2-12: Ch 3, turn.  2 dc in first sc.  *Sc in the space between the second and third dc in next 4-dc cluster.  4 dc in next sc.  Repeat from * to last sc.  Sc in ch-3 turning ch (in the space, not in the ch).
Finish off, weave in ends.

Note - don't check the measurements until after the second row.

 I used a set of three in the diaper cake I made for a friend's baby shower.  When I rolled them up, they looked like roses.  Perfect!

  1. Congratulations on being the Designer of the Week!

  2. So lovely! I've been using the same book to make washcloths! I also used a book of granny squares for the same purpose, but I think this book is better!

  3. So sweet! I just found this site and am loving your patterns. Thank you so much for sharing them. :)

  4. This pattern is awesome. easy and quick. Thanks for the pattern.

  5. Thank you for sharing your patterns. The lil wash cloth is precious & looks great in the pinks & greens l used. You are kind to share them with us!

  6. Tk u so much for sharing your patterns & talent with us. I love your patterns - all so very nice. This baby washcloth is really nice - am trying to make it now. I have a question: how many stitches are you supposed to have after row 1 - I end up with 18 - is that correct? If not, any ideas as to what I am doing wrong. I followed the instructions as best I know how but am not sure that is the correct amt of stitches to end up with??? Tk u so much for yr help.

  7. It's been a while since I've done this and I'm confused - after row 2 (and subsequent rows) do u ch3 then sc in space between 2nd & 3rd dc or do u just go directly to sc in space between 2nd & 3rd dc without doing ch 3??
