Super Soft Baby Washcloth

I’m back at it again. Another Washcloth Pattern. The Super Soft Baby Washcloth (disclosure: it’s super soft because of the yarn I use), is another of those easy “intro into knitting” patterns. The border is not required, but does make it look more polished.

Last year I shared a couple of easy knit washcloths with a crochet border. Remember the Irish Moss Washcloth, or the Bubble Washcloth? And this one falls under that same category of simple and basic. If you’re brand new to knit and crochet please feel free to post a comment and I will do my best to help guide you through it.

Why another washcloth pattern?

The brick and mortar store I stock with my items, Sage Hen Serendipity, needed some more washcloths. So this time… I thought.. “Why not some Super Soft Baby Washcloths?”

I’ve been surrounded by babies and pregnant people lately and have been working like a mad lady to finish baby gifts… so I figured… why not some washcloths? My husband and older kids love all the scrubbies and washcloths I make for them, so why not make some for babies?

OK, here’s the pattern…

Please note:

This pattern is written using standard U.S. terms. Basic knit and Crochet stitch knowledge is assumed.


Will measure approximately 6”X6” without crochet border; measures 7.5″X7.5″ with border.



* – * – repeat pattern

CO – cast-on

K – knit stitches

P – purl stitches

SC – Single Crochet

CH – Chain

CH2 – Chain 2

Sl St – Slip Stitch


The gauge for this piece isn’t super important. I due tend knit tight, so if you need, use smaller or larger needles or just simply knit your washcloth as long as it measures wide. (depending on how big you make the washcloth, you may or may not have extra yarn)
