Here is my free crochet washcloth pattern, however, please don’t let the “wordyness” of the pattern or length of the video put you off! This really is a quick and easy crochet project which makes the perfect gift or colour coordinated accessorise for your home.
I’m not even sure how I managed to make a 45 minute video just about a flannel but hopefully you might find some of my explanations, demonstrations and tips useful.
I’ve included a menu here of where you can find the key points in the video in case you have neither the time or inclination to watch the whole thing.
Free Crochet Washcloth Pattern Details
A simple facecloth in single crochet – made special with a slip stitch surface design in a contrasting colour & finished with a textured, reverse single crochet border. Make it in soft cotton for the perfect, colour coordinated bathroom accessory. I have also made pairs of flannels, in opposite colours, with matching, handmade soap as gifts.
Pattern is written in US crochet terminology and includes photos and mini tutorials for some of the techniques involved. A video is also available here.
Gauge is 16 sts & 20 rows in single crochet.
If you crochet to gauge, the flannel is a generous 28cm x 28cm.
- Aran or Worsted Cotton Yarn in 2 colours (each cloth uses 106.0 meters / 115.9 yards in Colour A & 48.5 meters / 53.0 yards in Colour B).
- Hook – 4mm
- Tapestry or wool needle.
- Stitch markers or scrap yarn.
