Bathroom and Bath Crochet Patterns for Free
It can be fun to use crochet to decorate your bathroom. The best part is that you can customize each pattern to the size and color you want and select your favorite yarns. Here are some crochet patterns for bathroom rugs, doilies, wash cloths, hand towels, toilet seat covers and more!
Wash Cloths as Doilies
Wash Cloths as Bathroom Décor
I confess, I love to crochet wash cloths. They are so quick and easy, I can make several as I watch television in the evening. I've experimented with several styles and shapes. I find they make cute bathroom doilies and add homemade charm to my bathrooms. My favorite style of double crocheting a bathroom washcloth is to crochet 2 separate panels just slightly smaller than the finished cloth and then crochet a double crochet border around the edge of both to attach them. This creates a double layer cloth that is thick and durable. For gift giving, a small soap slot could be left open in the back of the wash cloth to insert soap.
Crochet Wash Cloths
I enjoy using my crocheted wash cloths. They make anything from bathing to cleaning more fun. Here are the basic instructions to crochet a wash cloth: How to Crochet a Wash Cloth.
I like to embellish them with a single double crocheted border around the outer edge. Sometimes, I also use the outside border to stitch together two thicknesses of crocheted wash cloth to make an extra thick one. This is a perfect project for a beginner because it is easy.

Double Wash Cloth
Double Layer Wash Cloth
This is the double layer wash cloth. It was made with a double crochet stitch. The border is a double crochet stitch as well to fuse the two layers into one thick and durable wash cloth. It would make an excellent potholder as well.
Crochet a Bathroom Rug
I personally used this pattern to make 2 rugs for my bathroom. I made the rugs longer to stretch the length of my bathtub and double sink. I used Peaches & Creme 100% cotton yarn to make super absorbent and beautiful rugs.
If you prefer an oval rug to a rectangular one, you can follow these simple instructions:
Crochet a Round Rug
I recommend using two or three yarns at once to add weight to crocheted rugs.
Customizing Size and Shape
You can customize the size and shape of a crochet project. The trick is to first identify the "gauge" of your crochet using the yarn and hook that you will be using to complete the project. Crochet a sample and measure the sample to find the height and width. The create a template of the area you wish to cover by measuring the proportions of the area. In the photo example, we are making a rug to run the correct width and height to fit around the base of the toilet. Detailed instructions for using the template and the sample to find the exact number of stitches to finish the project are available at "How to Make Custom Crochet Projects."
This is another photo of one of the rugs created for my children's bathroom. It is double crocheted using 2 worsted weight yarns of the 100% cotton peaches and creme yarn. It is made to the exact length needed to fit the bathroom sink perfectly. I placed a thin layer of anti-slip material purchased at a discount store under the rug to keep it from moving as it is walked on. It works beautifully as the rug doesn't slip or slide.

Toilet Seat Cover
I prepared a custom crochet pattern to make a toilet seat lid cover to fit my toilet lid. Because it is a standard size, the crochet pattern should fit any standard toilet. Here are the instructions:
How to Crochet a Toilet Seat Cover
The wooden shelf above my toilet is currently adorned with a green crocheted doily and a multi colored knifty knitter panel "as a doily. The green crocheted doily was done by measuring my shelf. Because I know the hook I use makes rows 3/4 inch high with worsted weight yarn, I measured the width of the shelf and determined I needed to crochet 31 rows to fit the shelf. I also know that the crochet hook I use requires 3 stitches per inch of width. I measured the shelf as 7 inches wide and made my crocheted doily 21 stitches wide. In the end it fit perfectly. If you are interested in learning more about knitting the multi-color knitted panel, check out my knifty knitter lens.
Green Bathroom Crochet
I double crocheted in a wave pattern to create hand towels and wash cloths with extra appeal. I get compliments on my hand towel all the time and it makes a great decorative touch to any bathroom.
