I have a fun, easy pattern for a Crochet Rice Stitch Cotton Spa Cloth for you! This is a simple pattern using Front Post Double Crochet and Back Post Double Crochet stitches in a one row repeat.

This pattern creates such a great texture – perfect for light exfoliation! I used I Love This Cotton yarn in Sunset Seafoam with an H/5mm crochet hook to stitch up my spa cloths. And they only take about 1 ounce of yarn so you can get 3 spa cloths out of one 3 ounce skein – very cost effective. 🙂
If you need a refresher on crocheting front and back post stitches, there is a video tutorial here. And for the foundation half double crochet, this tutorial is great.
You can find the pattern below and I’ve also included a link to a free PDF if you’d like to easily print it.
