Mimosa Easy Washcloth Crochet Pattern

Easy crochet washcloth patterns are great to practice your crochet skill if you are still learning, or to practice reading and following the written crochet pattern, to use up your stash, to make a last-minute crochet gift and to make your kitchen (or bathroom) looks pretty while you’re actually using what you created :).

So, what would be the best stitch for crocheting washcloths?

Well, if you ask me, that would have to be a couple of different stitches that create beautiful texture, with at least two-row repeats (if you repeat one stitch over and over again it can become a bit boring :)). It’s amazing how even the basic stitches, such as slip stitch, single, half double and double crochet, can create a beautiful texture.

The best type of yarn for a crochet washcloth (or a dishcloth) would definitely be 100% cotton yarn. Cotton is durable, absorbent and washable.

The yarn weight is up to what you have in your stash and like working with, but I think that light worsted and medium worsted cotton yarns work the best.

So, dive in into your secret yarn storage, track down all those different cotton yarns you had no idea what to do with and make some lovely dishcloths to decorate your kitchen.

Here I came up with a fun and easy crochet washcloth pattern, that reminded me of the joyful Mimosa yellow flower (even though I didn’t use the yellow yarn).

But before you start crocheting, just a few words about the washcloth/dishcloth size in general.

They are usually square-shaped, ranging in size from 20×20 cm (8×8’’) to 30×30 cm (12×12’’). But you can be as creative as you want and make them in any size and in any shape you like.

ABOUT THE MIMOSA CROCHET WASHCLOTH

For this easy crochet washcloth pattern, you will need to know the basic stitches. My washcloth design isn’t exactly the perfect square, but you can always adjust the number of stitches and the number of rows to change that.

Border

When making the Border, join each round with sl st and start the next one in the same st. Using a st marker here to mark that 1st st may be useful.

When working in ends of rows while making the Border, your st count may be different than the one suggested in the pattern. The main goal here is to keep your edges straight and that will depend on your tension.

I suggest trying out what works best for you. If your edge starts to get “curly” you should decrease the number of sts. If it starts to pull towards inside, you should try adding more stitches.

Join C2 at the top right corner of the RS (1st sc of Row 29).

WITH C2

Rnd 1 (RS): ch1, sc in same st. sc in next 27 sts, (sc, ch1, sc) in next st (last st of Row 29) to create a corner, sc in each row end along the side edge (except for the 1st and the last where you create a corner), (sc, ch1, sc) in 1st st of foundation chain (creating a corner), sc in next 27 sts, (sc, ch1, sc) in last ch (to create a corner), sc in each row end along the other side edge, (sc, ch1) in 1st st of Row 29, sl st to join the rnd.

Rnd 2 (RS): ch1, sc BLO around, placing (sc, ch1, sc) in the corner ch-1 sps.

Fasten off and weave in ends.
