If you’re looking for a crochet washcloth that’s a bit more intricate and unique, you’ll love the Morning Glow washcloth pattern! It’s created with intermediate crocheters in mind, but if you’re a beginner feeling adventurous and keen to level up your skills, making this washcloth is a fantastic and fun way to practice!

For a beautiful, textured washcloth that’s easy to crochet, you should definitely try the Textured Washcloth I made last year. It’s a little easier for beginners. And if you’re keen on learning more, there are plenty of crochet washcloth patterns available to help you practice and master new stitches and techniques.

About the Stitch

In this pattern, I’ve mixed single crochet with puff stitches in a specific order for a bit of fun. The puff stitches are worked two rows below. In each new row, they are moved one stitch to the left to create an interesting diagonal stitch pattern! 😊

About the Yarn

For this project, I went with Bella Baby Tootgarook 4-ply yarn in a lovely self-striping pink and white combo. Feel free to choose any fingering weight yarn (4ply/super fine) that is 100% cotton. Pick any colour that brings a smile to your face – it’s all about what makes you happy as you’ll be using it!


This pattern is perfect for those at an intermediate level. You’ll need to be familiar with crocheting Puff stitches. We’ll be using Puff stitches that go into the stitches two rows below. It might be a breeze for some of you, but it could be tricky if you’re just starting out.

Difficulty Level



8″ x 8″ (20cm x 20cm)


11 Sts x 15 rows in single crochet = 2′′ (5cm)

Abbreviations (US Terms)

Ch = chain

St = stitch

Sl St = slip stitch

SC = single crochet

YO = yarn over

Pf St = puff stitch (*YO, insert hook two rows below the next St, pull up a loop to the height of the current row, repeat 3x from * all in the same stitch. You’ll have 7 loops on your hook. YO, pull through all 7 loops, see photos below for row 5.)


  • I used Bella Baby Tootgarook 4-ply yarn in pink-white self-striping yarn, one skein (159 yards /145 meters)
  • You can use any fingering weight yarn (4ply), 100% cotton, in any colour of your choice.
  • Crochet hook 3mm
  • Scissors, yarn needle, tape measure

Crochet Washcloth Pattern Notes

  • Adjust the size of your washcloth by chaining any multiple of 5 plus 8. For example, a multiple of 5 in this pattern is 35, then add 8 to this number, so we chain 43.
  • Work as many rows as you need to get to your desired size (square).
  • Ch 1 at the beginning of a row does not count as a stitch.
  • Puff stitches are worked into the stitches two rows below (see photos for row 5)
  • When the pattern indicates ‘2 SC’ or any other numerical value before a stitch, it instructs you to crochet one single crochet into each of the next two stitches.

Crochet Washcloth Instructions

Ch 43 or a multiple of 5 plus 8 for your desired length.

Row 1: Sc in second Ch from hook and each Ch across the row (42)

Rows 2-4: Ch 1, turn. SC in first and in each St across the row.

Row 5: Ch 1, turn. SC in first St, Pf St in next St (two rows below, see photos below), *4 SC, Pf St, repeat from * across the row until you have 5 stitches left, work one SC into each of the last stitches.

Rows 6: Ch 1, turn. SC in first and in each St across the row.

Row 7: Ch 1, turn. 2 SC, Pf St,*4 SC, Pf St, repeat from * across the row, 4 SC in last.

Border (optional)

Ch 3, turn. Skip one St, work a Sl St into next St. *Ch 3, Sk 1, Sl St in next. Repeat from * around the washcloth.

The exact number of stitches in the border doesn’t matter as long as they are spread out evenly on each side and you like the look the way it looks. 😊


If you’re gifting this washcloth to someone, it’s a good idea to block your washcloth and make it look pretty! ๐Ÿ™‚

If the edges and corners of your washcloth are curling, blocking can help. Simply wet the finished project under running water or with a spray bottle. Then, lay it out on a blocking foam board (or a piece of clean cardboard) in the desired shape and secure the corners with pins. Ensure that the sides and edges are perfectly straight with no curling-up corners. This will help maintain the shape as it dries.

I hope you enjoyed making this washcloth! 🙂

Thank you, Diane, that’s fantastic to hear! I’m sure your Mama will love the washcloth you make for her. ๐Ÿ˜Š Thanks for subscribing! ๐Ÿงถ๐ŸŽ‰

I would have loved making this washcloth for my mom. When I first saw it, it made me think of her and brought back some nice memories. She died about a year and a half ago, so I think I will make it any way and think about her as I make it.

Oh I’m sorry to hear that… I hope you enjoy making it ๐Ÿ’—
