So let’s talk real quick about how to make this free washcloth pattern.
How do you crochet a Tunisian washcloth?
For this Tunisian crochet washcloth pattern, you will first start by working a basic Tunisian crochet row which is a forward pass, and a return pass. Then after you have completed this part, you will make the Tunisian honeycomb stitch.
You’ll start by working a simple stitch, and then a purl stitch. Then you will alternate between these two stitches until the end of the row. After you’ve completed this row, you will then start your following row by making a purl stitch first, and then a simple stitch.
Once you have completed this row, all you have to do is alternate between row 2 and row 3 to create the stitch pattern. You will then finish off your washcloth with a simple single crochet border.
And that’s it! It’s an easy pattern with lots of texture.
Crochet a Matching Set for Your Home
Another great thing about this pattern is that I have an almost matching kitchen towel pattern. So if you’re looking to make a cute set for your kitchen or bathroom, this would be really fun to crochet.
Plus, it would make a really cute gift too. You can add some soap, a wooden dish brush, and put them in a caddy. Add a bow, and you’ve got an awesome gift.
And if you’re totally loving the Tunisian honeycomb stitch pattern, I’ve got a blanket version on the blog here too!
The Yarn You’ll Use for These Crochet Washcloths
For this crochet project, I used 1 ball of Hobby Lobby’s Cotton Et Lin yarn in the color Parchment and 1 ball in the color Rouge. It’s a number 4 worsted weight blended (80% cotton, 20% linen) yarn and it comes in 8 different colors.
I really enjoyed working with this yarn and definitely recommend it. However, since this is a washcloth pattern, you can use pretty much any worsted-weight cotton yarn. So if you can’t get a hold of this yarn, here are some other yarn recommendations:
- Hobby Lobby I Love This Cotton Yarn.
- WeCrochet Dishie Yarn.
- Lion Brand Cotton Yarn.
- Drops Paris or Cotton Light.

- The washcloth is made in the yarn color Parchment, and the border is made in the yarn color Rouge. You can also do the opposite and work the washcloth in the color Rouge, and the border in the color Parchment.
- Last row is made by making a Tunisian crochet slip stitch. You can find a detailed tutorial here.
Starting with the color Parchment, ch 22.
Row 1: FwP, draw up loop in 2nd chain from hook and in each chain across, RetP, yarn over, pull through first loop on hook. * yarn over, pull through next 2 loops, repeat from * till the end of the row (22 loops on the hook).
Row 2: Skip first vertical bar, (Tss 1, Tps 1) across row to last stitch, Lts, RetP.
You want to alternate between the Tunisian simple stitch and the Tunisian purl stitch. Continue to do this till the end of the row.
Row 3: Skip first vertical bar, (Tps 1, Tss 1) across row to last stitch, Lts, RetP.
Like row 2, you are going to alternate between stitches, except row 3 starts with the Tunisian purl stitch first, and then the Tunisian simple stitch. Take a look at the photo down below to help identify what each stitch looks like.
Row 4: Repeat row 2.
Row 5: Repeat row 3.
Row 6: Repeat row 2.
Row 7: Repeat row 3.
Row 8: Repeat row 2.
Row 9: Repeat row 3.
Row 10: Repeat row 2.
Row 11: Repeat row 3.
Row 12: Repeat row 2.
Row 13: Repeat row 3.
Row 14: Repeat row 2.
Row 15: Repeat row 3.
Row 16: Repeat row 2.
Row 17: Repeat row 3.
Row 18: Repeat row 2.
Row 19: Repeat row 3.
Row 20: Repeat row 2.
Last row: Tunisian slip stitch across row, alternating between a simple stitch and a purl stitch.
Once you have reached the end of the row, finish off your work. Now you will make the border of your Tunisian crochet washcloth with the second color Rouge.
Adding a border to your Washcloth
With the second color Rouge, reattach the yarn to the top left corner of your washcloth. Then chain 1, and make 1 single crochet in the first stitch. Continue to make a single crochet in each stitch until you reach a corner. Make 2 single crochets in each corner and then repeat this sequence all the way around the washcloth.
Once you have reached the beginning of your border, repeat the sequence one more time.
When you have finished your last stitch of the second row of your border, make a slip stitch and tie a knot. Finally, cut your yarn and weave in your ends.
You’re finished with your washcloth!
