Crochet Ribbed Washcloth in the THIRD LOOP | Free Pattern

My daily skincare routine is a very important part of my self care. I’m always washing my face, whether I’ve had a long sweaty day or I’m simply washing away my makeup. This crochet ribbed washcloth in the third loop does the best job and paired with the spiral face scrubby, it’s even better. Today’s free pattern would make a great spa-themed gift set and you’ll learn something new along the way. Have you ever crocheted in the third loop before?

Today we’re going to make this crochet ribbed washcloth in the THIRD LOOP of the half double crochet. If you’ve never crocheted in the third loop before, I highly recommend watching the video tutorial. The pattern is written below, but the step by step photos are only available within the premium bundle for all 12 patterns in this series.

Helpful Tutorials


  • Ch 2 does not count as a hdc
  • Use stitch markers to mark your first and last stitch if you’re having trouble keeping your edges straight
  • Inside the video tutorial, I used a 5mm crochet hook. Above I listed that the hook recommended is a 4.5mm hook. Here’s why: I created this washcloth first with a 5mm crochet hook and then after I made the video tutorial I tested a 4.5mm hook and liked the look of it better. I think this is because Lion Brand 24/7 cotton is a lighter medium weight yarn so a smaller hook looked better. If you’re using another medium weight yarn, a 5mm might look just as good. In the end, it’s totally up to you and doesn’t change too much of the final project.
