Easy Knitting Pattern: Harvest Washcloth

Free Harvest Washcloth Knitting Pattern: easy to knit washcloth pattern for beginners
Whether they are used in the kitchen or bathroom, I think hand knit washcloths make great hostess gifts, especially during the holiday season. Washcloths are quick and easy to knit and they are a relatively inexpensive project. Knit washcloths are also nice projects for beginner knitters that are still mastering basic stitches.

With Thanksgiving just a couple days away, I grabbed some yummy Plymouth Yarn Fantasy Naturale from my yarn stash and set to work making a couple of washcloths. If you are not a loose knitter, you can likely make two washcloths with a single hank using this pattern, but you won't have any leftovers.

If you feel extra fancy and know how to crochet, I recommend adding a single crochet border around your washcloth, but it is not required.
