Crochet washcloths are so fun and quick to make and so useful! I have tons of crochet washcloths that I use in my home on a regular basis! I am so excited to bring you another crochet washcloth pattern, featuring the stitch combo used in my popular Ferguson patterns!
Do Crochet Washcloths Really Work?
You might be wondering if crochet washcloths are really useful and hold up well to a dirty pot in the sink or stuck on food. I’m here to tell you that if you use the right yarn, the answer is yes!
I use my crochet washcloths in the kitchen mostly. They are used to wash dishes, wipe counters, and clean up spills. They get washed in the washing machine and dried in the dryer. And they look good as new after all that!
When choosing a yarn for your washcloths you want to go with a 100% cotton yarn. If the pattern calls for worsted weight, I highly recommend Dishie yarn from WeCrochet.
Dishie is both durable and absorbent, making it perfect for dish cloths…hence the name! It is machine washable and dryable. It comes in a huge variety of colors, perfect for matching the color scheme in your kitchen or bathroom!
One skein of Dishie is 190 yards, so you can usually get at least 2 washcloths out of it. It all depends on the stitch and size of the washcloth, but I was able to get two of these 10″ x 10″ washcloths out of just one skein.
So yes, crochet washcloths really do work, but you need a good 100% cotton yarn and a great textured stitch to get the most out of it.
