Free Crochet Pattern: Easiest Washcloths Ever

Below are a few simple rag patterns that I use when I need to whip up a quick rag.
If you are looking for a less basic rag you may like my Round Ruffly Rag or the Very Ribbed Rag

 Thanks for stopping by!

Skill Level: Beginner

Finished Size: 6" x 6"

Supplies:
Worsted Weight Cotton Yarn, approx. 50 yds. per washcloth
Size I (5.5 mm) Crochet Hook
Tapestry Needle
Scissors

Abbreviations (US Terms):
BLO - Back Loop Only
Ch - Chain
Dc - Double Crochet
Hdc - Half Double Crochet
Sc - Single Crochet
Sl St - Slip Stitch
Sp - Space

Optional Edge Addition:
Adding the following edge to your washcloth will change the size to about 6.5" x 6.5".

Each of the patterns below do not have an edge as the edges come out pretty clean with sc & hdc stitches but if you would like to add a border anyways I suggest the following:

After completing your final row of the pattern you are using, ch 1 & rotate the washcloth to the right so you can work along the side. Sc along the edge until you reach the next corner, ch 2, rotate the washcloth again to work along the next edge. Continue to do this for each edge, join with a sl st, fasten off and sew in ends.
