Knitting Pattern: Textured Washcloth

Free Pattern: Learn how to knit a simple cotton washcloth for the bath or kitchenI've been knitting for well over 20 years, and I have recently discovered the joys of making hand knit, cotton washcloths. It's a simple project that you can easily finish up in an evening or two.

They are quick, inexpensive gifts for baby or bridal showers. But when you discover how nice they are to use and both the bath and the kitchen, you'll need to treat yourself to a set as well.

For a simple washcloth, you could knit a square in stockinette stitch. I like mine to have a little bit of texture, so for this pattern I used a stitch that mimics a basket weave.


  • Lily Sugar 'N Cream Yarn
  • US size 10 knitting needles


I didn't really work out a gauge swatch for this project, but 31 sts and 48 rows made a 9 1/4 inch washcloth. Also, you can easily make two washcloths with a single 3 oz. skein of yarn.

Lather, rinse repeat ;)
