Weekly Wash #10: Washcloths in a Jif

We’ve all had that moment when we needed something right then but had very little time to make or buy it. Often, while traveling with our trailer, I run out of washcloths to use. I try to keep lots of cotton yarn with me so it is good to have a simple pattern to whip up. This is a simple cloth that is just the right size for dishes, removing makeup and even as a mug mat.

In a Jif Pattern

The crochet pattern for this dishcloth is available for free below.


  • Yarn: 75 yards 100% cotton 
  • Crochet Hook: I (5.5mm)
  • Notions: Yarn needle for weaving in ends


  • Finished Measurements: 7″ wide x 6.5″ high
  • Gauge: not needed for this project.


  • First stitch of each row is worked into the same  stitch as the turning chain.
  • Numbers at the beginning of each line may refer to  steps and not indicate number of rows.
  • Stitch count remains the same unless noted at end of row/round.
  • If you have any questions about this pattern please contact [email protected].


Reminder: FLO refers to the front loop as the piece is facing you. When you turn the piece, that side would then be the BLO.

1. With an I hook and cotton yarn, ch 28, sc in the 2nd ch from hook and in each ch across. (27sts)
2. Ch 1, turn, hdc in the same st, hdc in the BLO of the next 25 sts, hdc in the last st.

I hope you have enjoyed this quick and easy project.
