Textured Crochet Washcloth Pattern – Criss Cross

This is a new textured crochet washcloth pattern for your collection!

I am obsessed with these reusable squares that save me money, are good for the environment, and bring joy to my cleaning routine!

I sat one Saturday and used all my cotton yarn scraps designing different stitch combinations for washcloths.

I wanted them to be airy so they do not get moldy and textured so I feel the scrub in the shower!

Why do I use two strands of yarn?

I love my washcloths to be bulky and sturdy.

I love it when they feel heavy and keep their shape. That is why I used two strands of weight #4 cotton yarn.

That being said, you can decide differently and use only one strand- In that case please resize and calculate your gauge. so you get a big enough size crochet washcloth.
