More Cotton Knit Washcloths

These knit washcloths are a wonderful first project for a beginning knitter. Experienced knitters will find they can be worked very quickly for a relaxing evening project.

Materials:

  • 100% cotton "kitchen" yarn - the examples were made using coordinating solid and changing color yarn
  • Size 7 knitting needles
  • Scissors and yarn needle

Directions:
For beginning knitters or those who need a refresher on knitting, please refer to our first cotton knit washcloth project of the month that has links to basic knitting stitches.

  1. Cast on 4 stitches

  2. Knit 2 rows

  3. Knit 2, yarn over, knit to end (this will give you an increase with a hole creating the interesting border to the washcloth)

  4. Repeat step 3 until you have 45 stitches on your needle

  5. Knit 1, knit 2 together, yarn over, knit 2 together, knit to end

  6. Repeat step 5 until you have 5 stitches on your needle

  7. Knit 1, knit 2 together, knit 2 together

  8. Knit 1, knit 2 together

  9. Knit 2 together, tie off and weave in the loose end thread using a yarn needle.

Enjoy!
