Materials Needed for Crochet Washcloth Patterns

While you would need many of these materials for any crochet project, crocheted washcloths sometimes require different types of materials depending on the pattern.

Take a look below at the different weights of yarn, hook sizes and other things that work best for washcloth designs.

  1. Stitch Markers: stitch marker can be used to keep track of the rows you are working in most washcloth patterns. As a beginner crocheter, this can be helpful for making an even washcloth design.
  2. Crochet Hook: Most of the washcloth patterns below will let you know what size crochet hook to use for that particular washcloth, ranging from 4 mm to 6 mm sized hooks.
  3. Yarn: While almost any yarn can be used for washcloth patterns, the most commonly used is a cotton yarn. Cotton yarns can be easily washed and are durable. Each of the patterns will have the recommended yarn listed in the pattern.
  4. Yarn Needle: A yarn needle (or tapestry needle) will come in handy to sew in the yarn ends of the washcloth.
  5. Scissors: A good pair of scissors to cut yarn is not a necessity, but it is a nice option to have. I prefer small stork scissors as my yarn only cutting scissors.
  6. Measuring Tape: A tape measure will come in handy to determine gauge and if the washcloth is the correct size as the pattern indicates.
