Spa Time Washcloth – Crochet Pattern

Ravelry // Etsy // Pinterest // All Free Crochet // Fave Crafts

The Holiday season is fast approaching, and handmade gifts are some of the best things to give loved ones. If you have a big family like I do, though, making hats, scarves, and sweaters for every single person can be a very daunting task. I have to be practical with my time and money, so a few small items per person will do – and the Spa Time Washcloth is a simple fix for my little problem.

This crochet pattern uses simple crochet stitches and the bobble stitch, works up very quickly, and doesn’t even use a full skein of yarn. I’ve already made 3 today, on the day that i’m writing this, and it’s only 11:22 in the morning!

Soft and squishy cotton yarn is fairly inexpensive, and from one skein of around 180 yards, you can easily get 2-4 washcloths! Sound like a good deal? Check out below for this free crochet pattern! You can also purchase a downloadable PDF version from my Ravelry or Etsy stores! Let’s GO!

About The Pattern

  • Cotton yarn works best for washcloths. In my opinion it’s softer, more durable, and washes better than acrylic yarn. However, you may use acrylic if that is all you have or if you just choose to do so. It would actually make a better skin exfoliate than cotton yarn. Which reminds me! You may use the scrubby type yarn for this pattern as well.
  • The finished product measures a little over 6.5 inches long and about 5.5 inches wide using a H/5.0 MM crochet hook. Gauge is not terribly important for this pattern, especially since bobble stitches can sometimes make your normal gauge a little wonky. If you want to stick close to the size of my product, but your gauge is off, try a different sized hook – smaller hook if you need it to be smaller, bigger hook for a bigger size.
  • The hook size isn’t the only adjustable option for this pattern. I used Medium 4 Weight Cotton yarn, but you may also use a different weight, such as Sport Weight, for this pattern.
  • ch 1 or ch 2 at the beginning of each row does not count as a stitch
  • text between * * are repeated for the whole row.
  • beginner/intermediate level pattern

How to do the Bobble Stitch

*yarn over and insert hook into stitch. pull up a loop. yarn over and pull through first 2 loops on hook. do this a total of five times, making sure to only pull through the first 2 loops on your hook. After the fifth time, you should have a total of 6 loops left on your hook. yarn over and pull through all 6 loops. pull a little bit to tighten and make the stitch “bobble” out, making sure not to interrupt your gauge.*
