Knit Pattern: Mitered Washcloth

Free Pattern: How to make a knit, cotton washcloth for kitchen or bath
I have been knitting and crocheting for more than 20 years, and I don't know why it's taken me so long to grab a nice ball of cotton yarn and make a washcloth or two.

Handmade washcloths are so luxurious to use in the bath. They make you feel like you are indulging in a day at the spa. And, they are so quick and easy to make, you won't feel bad about using them everyday in the kitchen.

Another benefit of handmade washcloths is that they are great projects for beginning knitters and crocheters. Cotton yarn is inexpensive, easy to work with and you can easily complete a washcloth in a short amount of time.

Materials


  • 1 - 3 oz/85 g ball Lily Sugar 'N Cream Yarn  in Oriental Ochre (or the color of your choice)
  • US size 10 (6 mm) knitting needles
  • stitch marker


Directions


My finished washcloth is 8 inches square when dry (it will stretch out a bit when it's wet) and you can make about three with one skein of yarn.

Here are a few stitches and abbreviations you should know for this quick and easy pattern.

co - cast on
k - knit
p - purl
sl - slip stitch as if to purl
psso - pass slipped stitch over
k2tog - knit 2 stitches together
k5tog - knit 5 stitches together

CO 50

Row 1 (WS): Sl 1, k24, place marker, k24, p1.

Row 2: Sl 1, k to within 2 sts of marker, sl 1, k1, psso, slip marker, k2tog , k to within 1 st of the end, p1.

Row 3: Sl 1, k to within 1 st of the end, p1.

Repeat Rows 2-3 until 6  sts remain.

Sl 1, k5tog, psso, finish off.

Weave in the yarn tails and you're ready to start scrubbing!

And in case you are wondering, the lighter colored washcloth was made with a color called Potpourri. The little flecks of pink, blue and purple would make a washcloth that is baby shower worthy.
