Crochet pattern for a textured washcloth (flannel).

The reason I love this pattern is that while a washcloth is a simple necessity, this pattern brings a special spa feeling to every day life. Made from cotton yarn, they are just as practical as the dull terry-toweling type, but so much more beautiful and satisfying to use. It’s also a fantastic pattern to have in your library for last minute gifts that anyone would appreciate.

The washcloth has a nubbly texture, which is easy to work, producing a cloth which is gently exfoliating. The washcloth has a neat edging for a ‘finished’ look and an optional hanging loop - important details often missing from other patterns.

This pattern is part of my matching bathroom set - buy them together for a discount. See my Bathroom Pattern Bundle for details.

To complete one washcloth you will need approximately:

  • 81m (88yards) of double-knitting (DK, light worsted weight, Category 3) yarn.
  • 4.5mm (US size 7) crochet hook
  • 5mm (US size H-8) crochet hook
  • a blunt yarn needle

The pattern includes detailed notes on yarn choice.

The finished cloth is 20cm or 8inches square. The pattern includes how to vary aspects of the basic design if you want to.

I hate weaving in yarn ends, so this pattern is worked all in one, without breaking off the yarn at any point, so there’s only one yarn end to work in!

This pattern is available in both UK and US crochet terminology. Both files will be available for you on purchase and you can choose whichever you prefer to use.

The UK pattern names suitable yarns currently available in the UK that work perfectly for this pattern.

Important feature of my crochet patterns:
My crochet patterns include BOTH a detailed ‘tutorial-style’ set of instructions with colour photos, AND a succinct unillustrated pattern using standard crochet conventions.
I have developed this style because I find I like to see a lot of detail the first time I work a pattern, but if I then work the same piece again, I don’t need the pictures, etc, and indeed they can get in the way when I just want a quick reminder of what I’m doing. The PDF is also structured so that the succinct version, with an area for your own notes, is on a single page, making it easy to just take one sheet of paper with you if you have printed it out for quick reference on the move.
