Toddler Wash Mitt Crochet Pattern

If your child struggles to manage an adult-sized washcloth (flannel), if they tend to leave you with large puddles on the bathroom floor, or if wash-time is generally a bit of a struggle, then this Wash Bear may be the answer!

This is a simple-to-crochet wash mitt, sized to fit a toddler's hand. The addition of a friendly face makes it attractive to your child and easier to banish wash-time grumps.

Because it is small, it is easy for a child to manipulate in order to wash themselves, giving them a great sense of independence. Plus it doesn't hold as much water as a normal-sized washcloth, sponge or mitt, so you will probably end up with less water on the bathroom floor!

A design tried and tested by my own two-year-olds, and by parents and toddlers in my village. Some parents also like to keep one in the kitchen for after-meal clean-ups.

Also great to make as a gift for a new baby.

The bear measures 10cm (4") in diameter, excluding his cute little ears.

You will need:
• approximately 35m (38 yds) of double-knitting (DK, light worsted weight, Category 3) yarn in the colour of your choice
• around 1 m (2 yds) of 4ply (sport weight, category 2) yarn or stranded embroidery cotton for the face detail
• a 4.5mm (US size 7) crochet hook
• a blunt yarn needle
• a sharp embroidery needle
• sharp scissors

This pattern is available in both UK and US crochet terminology. Both files will be available for you on purchase and you can choose whichever you prefer to use.

This pattern is very easy to approach for a beginner, and gives great practice in working in the round. The pattern gives advice on the type of yarn to choose, and the UK pattern names specific yarns currently available in the UK that would be suitable for this pattern.

The pattern comes with my full support! If you have any difficulties, please contact me! Rest assured I am a real person and I'd love to hear from you and see pictures of your finished creations! :-)

Important features of my crochet patterns:
My crochet patterns include BOTH a detailed 'tutorial-style' set of instructions with colour photos, AND a succinct unillustrated pattern using standard crochet conventions.
I have developed this style because I find I like to see a lot of detail the first time I work a pattern, but if I then work the same piece again, I don't need the pictures, etc, and indeed they can get in the way when I just want a quick reminder of what I'm doing. The PDF is also structured so that the succinct version, with an area for your own notes, is on a single page, making it easy to just take one sheet of paper with you if you have printed it out for quick reference on the move.

Average review
Nice clear pattern, for a cute little gift. I used worsted weight cotton, with a suitable hook, and it is looking fine!

Instructions are clear and easy to follow

Very pleased - I have purchased the pattern as I was browsing around and found it very very cute! The pattern when dowloaded is available in different terminologies which I think is very good because it gives the preference to the buyer to choose what they prefer to use. The pattern is also very easy to make and the instructions are very easy to follow. The instructions come with very good visuals too. Will definitely recommend this seller.

Your files will be available to download once payment is confirmed. Here's how.


Via PayPal you are able to pay with your credit or debit card.

Please be assured that when you click to add something to your basket, you will always be shown the full cost including postage and packing costs before you commit to buy, and you can always remove it from your basket if you so wish.

CANCELLING YOUR ORDER – Physical Items ++++++++++++++++++++++++++

You have the right to cancel an order at any time from the moment you place the order until 14 days from the day you receive your goods.

This 14 day period is the time you have to decide you wish to cancel and get in touch with me. Once you have got in touch about cancelling an order, you then have a further 14 days in which to return the goods if they have been dispatched.

The Consumer Contracts Regulations does not give you the right to cancel an order for personalized, customized and tailor-made items, but please contact me anyway if you have any issues at all, and we'll work it out together.

CANCELLING YOUR ORDER – Digital Items ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

Specific provisions exist in the Consumer Contracts Regulations for digital content.
If you are ordering a digital item, by agreeing to these terms and conditions you are giving your express consent for me to supply you with your digital item within the 14-day cancellation period. (If you did not consent to this, I would have to wait 14 days before providing you with the digital item, to allow you your right to cancel).

You are further acknowledging that once I have e-mailed you a digital item, or you have started to download a file, you loose your right to cancel the order.

If you do not consent to this, please do not place an order.

Returns & exchanges

RETURNS & REFUNDS ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

If you wish to return items (this hasn't happened yet!) I'm happy to refund the purchase price plus postage and packing costs, provided the items are returned in perfect (resellable) condition. Here's how it works:

If you wish to return something, you must get in touch with me within 14 days of receiving it. You can do this using the Returns & Refunds Form on my website here: or just contact me with the relevant information.

I will process your refund (of the purchase price plus my standard postage and packaging cost) within 14 days of receiving the returned items, provided they are returned in resellable condition.

If you paid for an upgraded delivery service, this will not be refunded in full - I will only refund the amount of my standard postage and packaging service.

A deduction will be made from the refund if the value of the item(s) has been reduced as the result of excessive handling, carelessness or any other reason.

In returning items, you will need to pay for the return postage yourself. I strongly advise that you obtain a certificate of posting (at a minimum) from your Post Office or courier, as if the item is lost in transit you will need to be able to claim for compensation.

If you are returning items to me from outside the United Kingdom, you must mark the package prominently as "Returned Goods". If you don't do this, I will unfortunately have to deduct any customs fees/tax/brokerage charges from the amount I can refund you.

Digital items cannot be returned.
