This is a simple pattern that I made to help improve my own basic knitting skills. The end result is a very nice wash clothe that makes a great gift for kitchen or bath. You may not want to give them away!
I use 100% cotton yarn for these.
This is a perfect pattern for those that are just starting out in the world of knitting!


  1. I have to say, I can really appreciate the photos you take to demonstrate detail. Better than a lot of photos I see of handmade jewelry or other crafts.

  2. Thank you very much. I was actually disappointed with these photos and reluctant to use them. I had taken them at night with bad lighting and what I got for it was a deep red yarn that looks pink.
