My Favorite Knit Wash Cloth - Free Pattern

I thought it was time that I share a free knitting pattern here on Jestti.  :)

If you haven't noticed by now, I love to knit.  One of my favorite projects is a simple wash cloth.  It is relatively quick and is easy enough for a beginner.  These wash cloths make wonderful gifts.  I've given away quite a few of them and some recipients use them as dish rags, some for bathing and some use them as pot holders.  They are versatile little goobers!

Here is the pattern:

You will need size 7 knitting needles and cotton yarn.  My favorite is Lily Sugar 'n Cream yarn - but feel free to use your favorite cotton worsted weight yarn.

Cast on 40 stitches.

Row 1:  Knit
Row 2:  Knit
Row 3:  Knit 2, *knit 1, purl 1; repeat from * across to last 2 stitches.  Knit those last two.
Row 4:  Knit 2, *knit 1, purl 1; repeat from * across to last 2 stitches.  Knit those last two.

Those first four rows are the basic pattern for this wash cloth.  Now just repeat rows 1-4 until your cloth is square.  It will be around 8 inches by 8 inches depending on how tight/lose of a knitter you are.  When you bind off, make sure you end on row 4 (bind off with row 4).

And that's it!  Enjoy!

New Product Photos

I sure do love my job.  Knitting snuggly things for babies is so fun.  It's even better to see how photographers use those photo props that I make.  Here are a few of the latest ones.

A set of twins from Framed Photography.  These are just gorgeous!

And this picture is from Kelsey Kuns Photography - I absolutely adore this one!
