If you want to try an oval-shaped bath mat that isn't worked as a rag rug, a great pattern to consider is this one from Atelier *mati*. This pattern is actually intended as a doily pattern but can become a rug by working it with a thick yarn and larger hook. It incorporates the beautiful crochet star stitch, making a great textured design that will feel lush under your feet in a thick, plush yarn.

One of the easiest crochet bath mats to make is simply to crochet a large scale crochet granny square. You want to make sure that the bath mat is able to absorb water when you step on to it from the shower. The rag rug option mentioned above is a great choice, but it's not the only option. Cotton yarn and t-shirt yarn are also great options for a granny square bath mat. Of course, you could also crochet a circle to make a round bath mat.Continue to 5 of 10 below.

If you want a crochet bath mat that has more style than a basic square, rectangle, circle or oval then a terrific design choice is a doily-inspired rug. This free t-shirt yarn rug crochet pattern is from Crochet In Paternoster. The lovely cotton candy color is perfect for a girly bathroom but you could work it in any color that suits your own bathroom decor.
Another great doily-inspired bath mat is Angie's free crochet rug pattern, which is also worked in a t-shirt yarn.

You can crochet all of the towels for your bathroom, not just the washcloths. Of course, it can take a long time to crochet large bath towels. A good alternative is to take a towel that you already have an add a crochet edging to it. You can do this with hand towels, as seen in this crochet pattern, as well as on body towels.
