One of the most popular patterns for beginners are washcloths! Why? Because they’re quick to work up and a great way to practice new stitches. Plus, you can give them away as gifts or use around your own home! The Treble Pop Washcloth Crochet Pattern is one of the five best crochet washcloth patterns for beginners. Why? Because not only are we making something useful, we’re putting our new skills to the test! With the Treble Pop Washcloth Crochet Pattern, we’ll be practicing the single and treble crochet stitches.
**PATTERN UPDATED JUNE 2020**
I’m not great at naming crochet patterns. To me, it’s the hardest part of the design process! The reason why I named this washcloth the treble pop is because of the way the stitches are worked. When you single crochet after a treble, it makes the treble stitch pop out like a mini bobble. If you love the look of bobble stitches, but you aren’t at that level yet, this is a great alternative!
What will I learn through this pattern?
First, if you haven’t read the original post for the 5 Quick & Pretty Crochet Washcloth Patterns, go do that! I put together this washcloth series as a way for crochet beginners to practice the basics, but also come away with something valuable.
By crocheting the Treble Pop Crochet Washcloth, you will be practicing the single and treble crochet. It will also put your pattern reading skills to the test with the zigzag striping. If you’re not familiar with reading crochet patterns or you want to brush up on your knowledge, check out parts one and two of How to Read Crochet Patterns.
Then, of course, you will have your very own washcloth (or dish towel) to use around the house! Crochet washcloths are often used as face cloths or dish towels.
If you haven’t learned either of the stitches I mentioned, head over to each of the tutorials before you continue with this pattern.

When making your own washcloths, it’s best to use 100% cotton yarn. This is explained deeper in the post about all five washcloths, but I will list a few of my favorite cotton yarns below. If you don’t want to use 100% cotton, at least find something with a cotton blend.

- 5mm crochet hook
- Tapestry needle
- Ch – chain stitch
