The back loop single crochet is a beautifully simple stitch. It adds texture with an easy adjustment of stitch placement and creates an appealing design within projects. It works perfectly for washcloths because it’s fast, easy and adds a bit of scrub action with the texture. Today I’m sharing the Textured Back Loop Washcloth and you can find all the details below:
This pattern is an exclusive design which means it is only available as a paid pattern in my Etsy and Ravelry shops. Click the pink buttons below to view my online patterns that are available for purchase.
This pattern was a really fun one to design and crochet. The double crochet ends combined with the solid rows of back loop single crochet created a lovely piece. My pattern testers said they found this project fun and relaxing and shared a lot of positive feedback with me. It’s always a great feeling knowing that your work is enjoyed by others.
This washcloth uses Bernat Handicrafter cotton and can be made with less than one 50 gram skein. I love one skein projects! You will also need your favourite 5mm hook, some scissors, a yarn needle and a measuring tape. It works up very quickly which makes it perfect for when you need a break between larger projects or, need something to work on when you have a few minutes in the day.
A set of these washcloths would look so cute tied up with some ribbon for Mother’s Day, a birthday or teacher gifts!
Did you know this is my second washcloth design? My first one, The Sweet Suzy Washcloth uses the suzette stitch and works up so beautifully. It’s a premium pattern which means it’s available for free on my blog but also has a paid version which is a neatly formatted, printer friendly digital download. You can find it in my Etsy and Ravelry shops too! And guess what? I’ve set up a bundle in my shops where you can get both the Textured Back Loop Washcloth and The Sweet Suzy Washcloth for a discounted price if purchased together.
