Free pattern: Scrub-a-dub-dub Washcloth

Scrub-a-dub-dub Washcloth, free #crochet pattern by @ucrafter . This stitch pattern would also make a great blanket!

I’m sure I’m not the only one, but in the summer, I shave my legs more frequently than in the winter. (That may seem a bit like too much information, but I’m sharing it for a reason!)

All of this shaving leaves my skin just as dry as it would be in the colder months, so I decided a little exfoliating was in order.

There’s nothing quite like a handmade cotton washcloth. It softens with each wash so it feels great on your skin, and it’s a great way to refresh the surface of your legs (or, really, any part of your body).

I like to use organic cotton for washcloths since they are so close to your skin. (If you are wondering why, you may enjoy this post about eco yarns.) I used Galler Yarns Inca Eco for the sample, and since it’s also colored with low-impact dyes, this washcloth also makes a great baby shower gift.

This textured washcloth is perfect for exfoliating your skin! The stitch pattern looks woven and helps the washcloth to dry more quickly.

    Hi, mine comes out looking a lot more open with gaps where the chain one is in each row, am I doing something wrong or has the one in your picture tightened up when you washed it?

      Thanks for asking, Sam. I hadn’t yet washed the one in my picture. It sounds like you aren’t doing anything wrong, but you may have looser stitches than I do. If the spaces seem to big to you, try using a smaller hook or tightening your tension.
