Three Washcloths Each With A Different Pattern.

Each one of these 3 pretty crochet washcloths is made with a different pattern.  Each pattern is done using only a single crochet stitch.  Create these from a variety of yarns and threads to create a cloth for every use.  Crochet washcloths have become very popular in the last few years.  Now you can create an endless supply for your own personal use or to give as gifts!

Crochet Pattern: 3 Pretty Washcloths

Washcloth #1

Ch 32 (or a chain that is the width of your desired washcloth. If the chain is adjusted there must be an even number of chains)
Row 1: sc in forth ch from hook, *ch 1, skip 1 ch, sc in next ch, repeat from * across
Row 2: ch 2, turn, skip first sc, sc in next ch-space, *ch 1, skip 1 sc, sc in next ch-space, repeat from * across
Repeat row 2, 23 more times or until the washcloth is as long as desired. Do not finish off, continue with border instructions at end of pattern.

Washcloth #2

Ch 32 (or a chain that is the width of your desired washcloth. If the chain is adjusted there must be an even number of chains)
Row 1: 2 sc in second ch from hook, skip 1 ch, *2 sc in next ch, skip 1 ch, repeat from * across until 1 ch remains, sc in last ch
NOTE: In the next rows, you will be crocheting IN BETWEEN the sets of 2 sc you made in the previous row.
Row 2: ch 1, turn, skip first st, sc in next st, skip 1 st, *2 sc in next st, skip 1 st, repeat from * across until 1 st remains, sc in last st
Repeat row 2, 23 more times or until the washcloth is as long as desired. Do not finish off, continue with border instructions at end of pattern.

Washcloth #3

Ch 31 (or a chain that is the width of your desired washcloth. If the chain is adjusted there must be an odd number of chains)
NOTE: This pattern is worked as follows: 1 sc in the back loop then 1 sc in the front loop, throughout the pattern. You may find yourself moving your piece forward and back in order to see the front or back of the stitch.
Row 1: sc in second ch from hook and in each ch across
Rows 2: ch 1, turn, *sc in back loop of next sc, sc in front loop of next sc, repeat from * across
Repeat row 2, 23 more times or until the washcloth is as long as desired. Do not finish off, continue with border instructions at end of pattern.

Border (for all washcloths)
Single crochet evenly around the washcloth. For a photo tutorial on crocheting along the edge, check out the post Crocheting Around the Edges.

Remember, you will single crochet along each side of the washcloth. When you come to the corners, 3 sc in each corner. When you have crocheted all around and come to the first corner made, slip stitch into the middle stitch of that corner and finish off.
