They make great gifts paired with a nice fancy soap (I gift wrap mine with a local goats milk soap).

I also use two colours - one for the main body of the washcloth & a contrasting colour for the trim.

Hook: 5mm crochet hook or whatever hook you feel comfortable using with the yarn.

You will also need some scissors for cutting the yarn ends & a darning needle to weave in the ends.

Ok, let's start!

Chain 25, using the main colour yarn.
Row 1:::   Skip first stitch then *1 sc & 1 dc in the next stitch, skip next stitch.   Repeat from * to end of row.
               Turn.
Repeat row 1 for 18-20 rows either until square or it's at the size you like!  (I crochet 18 rows). 
Fasten off and weave in ends.

To finish with the trim:
Using secondary (trim) colour, sc around the edge adding an extra chain stitch into the corners to keep the trim flat.
Fasten off & weave in the ends.

Edited on 27th Oct 2014.....  
please note that several comments (below) state that I should be chaining one at the start (or end) of each row. I don't, it's not needed. In fact, to show you that it is not needed, please click here, it will take you to another blog post that shows step by step how it is not needed.
