Crochet Washcloth- Weave

Above is the almost finished-my-hands-hurt-so-I'm-blogging about it washcloth/dishcloth!  I used one ball of Lily brand sugar n cream in purple along with a size G-hook.  Its quite simple to do all it takes is the materials listed above and some tylenol for the ache in your hands if your hands start to hurt! Haha!  
Abbreviations: Slst-slip stitch  hdc-half double crochet  ch-chain   st-stitch
The pattern:

Ch 46
Row 1: Slst in second ch from hook and in the next 4chs.  *hdc in the next 5chs, slst in the next 5chs* repeat across (45sts)
*Note: work in the backloops only from here on out*
Row 2: Ch1, turn, slst in the first 5 slsts, *hdc in the 5 hdcs from the previous row, slst in the next 5 slsts from the previous row* repeat across
Row 3&4: Ch2, turn, hdc in the first 5sts, *slst in the next 5 sts, hdc in the next 5 sts* repeat across
Row 5: Ch1, turn, slst in the first 5 hdc, *hdc in the next 5 slsts, slst in the next 5 hdc* repeat across
Repeat rows 2-5 until washcloth measures 10" or your ball of yarn runs out!! End and weave in ends unless you desire an edging.  Until next time, Happy Hooking!!!


  1. Hello. I just wanted to thank you for posting this pattern. I fell in love with it even more once I tried it out and found how simple and adaptable it is. I have used the pattern stitch to make not only dishcloths but also shrugs and sweaters for my granddaughter's American Girl dolls. It has a really nice texture and looks a lot more complex than it actually is. Thanks so much for sharing!

  2. Your very welcome!!! It was just one of those things that I wanted to see would work and yay! it did!! I havent had the chance to try it for anything else, so Im glad to hear that it is adaptable! Thank you for following!

  3. I am going to make this! I have seen the wave pattern on much larger projects and wondered about the pattern, now i can try it out on a smaller item. Thanks for sharing.

  4. Hi! I really like this pattern, I've started using it to make some charity blanket squares. I linked to this pattern on my blog post today. Thanks for posting the pattern!
