Exfoliating Facial Washcloth – FREE Crochet Pattern!


Have you been looking for the perfect crochet washcloth pattern?  Look no further!  I spent days scouring the internet trying to find a good pattern with a good texture and I finally gave up looking and just decided to make my own :-).  This pattern uses the crunch stitch and if you don’t know how to do that stitch just watch the video below before getting started on the pattern.

The Crunch Stitch


  • 5.00 MM Hook
  • 100% Cotton Yarn
    • I used the Peaches & Cream Yarn from Wal-Mart to make mine.  One cone was $7.97 and I was able to make 5 complete washcloths and 1 almost completed washcloth out of it.
  • Yarn Needle

Starting Chain

Make a slip knot and chain 41

Row 1

Skip the first and second chain from your hook and crochet a slip stitch into the 3rd chain.  In the next stitch crochet a half double crochet.  Crochet another slip stitch into the next stitch and then a half double into the next stitch.  Continue repeating this pattern on a slip stitch and then a half double all the way until you reach the end of the row.

Row 2

To begin Row 2 chain 2, turn your work, and skip the first stitch.  In the next stitch crochet a slip stitch and then continue with the pattern from Row 1 all the way to the end.

Row 3+

Continue repeating row 2 until your length is the same as your width.  Mine ended up being about  9.5″ x 9.5″.


Once you have finished making your rows tie off the end and cut your yarn with about 4″ left hanging off.  You can choose to weave in your ends but I prefer to just crochet my border over them.  Whichever way you want to do it is fine.  For the border just single crochet all the way around.  When you are finished tie off your end and cut your yarn again.  Make sure to leave about 4″ so you can weave it in.  Weave in your end and then you are finished!
