It's been a while since my last post! I've been keeping busy with kids' schedules and spring activities. We had a wonderful Easter here at Morning Glory Lane. We celebrated with a family dinner on Saturday, church on Sunday, and lots and lots of chocolate in between!
I have been squeezing in some sewing and some yarn goodness where I can. Some projects require more thinking than others! I like to always have an easy, no-brain-required, project at hand for those times when I'm just too tired to think. For me, these easy knitted washcloths fit the bill. I like to have a steady supply of these around for gifts, and I also try to have a few in my Etsy shop. This pattern has been around
forever, made by grandmas and moms all over the world, but I thought I'd do a quick write-up for those of you who may be new to the knitting bug, or who might enjoy a trip down memory lane.
Easy, Breezy, Knit Washcloth (knit on the diagonal)
Use a cotton yarn and an appropriate sized needle. For Peaches -n- Creme yarn, I use a size 7 needle. Switch up or down a size to adjust to yarn weight and to find your personal preference. Some people like a very tight washcloth, and others like them loose and squishy!
Cast On 4
First Row: Knit
Row 2: K 2, YO, K2
Row 3: K2, YO, K to end
Row 4: K2, YO, K to end
Continue in this pattern until you have 45 stitches on your needle.
Now you will begin the decrease.
K 1, K2 together, YO, K2 together, K to end
Continue in this pattern (K 1, K2 together, YO, K2 together, K to end) until you have
4 remaining stitches on your needle.
Bind off, weave in ends, and enjoy your new washcloth!
