Cotton yarn is a favorite for summertime and washcloths are the perfect project. This pattern is easy and very beginner friendly, yet looks so pretty.
It’s hard to work on larger projects when it’s really hot. Last week, here in southern Oklahoma, it stayed between 105-110 degrees all week so I needed a lightweight projects.
The ribbing makes this washcloth have a really nice texture. Great for exfoliating your skin when you wash your face. It feels so good.
Oh, and if y’all like the soap, it is the goat milk soap that I help make on my families farm. You can get you some here The bar pictured is ‘Oatmeal & Honey.’

Back Loop Single Crochet –
If you don’t know the difference between a front loop and a back loop on a stitch, it is very easy to tell the difference. when you do a single crochet you usually insert your hook through both loops of the stitch. The stitch looks like a little v on top. To do a back loop single crochet, you will simply insert your hook into the back loop (the loop farthest from you) yarn over, pull up a loop, 2 loops on hook, yarn over, pull through both loops. By crocheting in the back loops only this creates a ribbed surface. If a back loop single crochet still confuses you, I made a Youtube tutorial for this pattern. You can find it here.
Row 1: ch 26, sc in the 2nd st from hook and each st across (25)
Row 2-27: ch 1, t, blsc in each st across (25)
Ch 1, do not turn, evenly sc down side and all the way around the washcloth placing 2 sc in each corner. Cut yarn. Weave in ends.
