I recently put this pattern up as a free Ravelry download, if you are a member and are interested, you can find it there in pdf form. My Ravelry user name is needlenhook.

Pattern:

Finished Size: 8 inches square

Yarn: Bernat Cottontots (or any comparable worsted weight yarn), Approx. 50 yards MC and small amount CC for trim.

Hook: Size I-9 (5.5 mm)

Notions: Darning needle for weaving in ends.

Gauge: Not crucial for this project. This works up very quickly, so your washcloth can be your gauge swatch!

Directions:

Ch 21.

Row 1: With MC, Sk first ch, *1 sc and 1 dc in next ch, sk next ch, rep from *to last sc, sc in last sc, ch 1, turn. (21 sts)

Row 2: Sk first sc, *1 sc and 1 dc in next ch, sk next sc, rep from *to last sc, sc in last sc, ch 1, turn. (21 sts)

Rows 3-15: Rep row 2. Do NOT fasten off.

Finishing: Still using MC, sc evenly all the way around the washcloth, putting 2 sc in each corner sp, end by sl st to beg sc. Fasten off.

Attach CC anywhere on the outside edge and reverse sc (also referred to as crab stitch) all the way around the washcloth. When you finish the last st, do not knot the end, just pull the tail all the way through. This will make for a cleaner edging. Weave ends in. Wa-la!

Wow, they look almost EXACTLY like ones that i've been doing for the last few months - right down to the crab stitch and the contrasting colors(although my stitch is slightly different)...just gave two sets for baby shower basket add ins and everybody LOVED them!

Wow! Great minds think alike! I started making these a couple of years ago for baby shower gifts. I knew the stitch pattern was perfect for washcloths, and am not surprised that you have something similar, but the crab stitch too? Way cool.

You're not kidding! I looked and experimented for months to find a stitch I though was perfect - I wound up going with sc, dc rep across, but I don't skip - I love the soft little bubbles they make!
here's a set I did for a baby shower last week - you can see why when I saw your post I was like WOW thats freakily THE SAME! haha

Thanks for the pattern :) I was looking for a good crochet pattern for baby washcloths. My mother knitted some for my son, but that isn't something I know how to do. Just sc across is too stiff, but this looks like a nice pattern! :hook
