Knit Cotton Washcloth with Crochet Edge
Are you read for a pattern for a Knit Cotton Washcloth? This one has a lovely crochet edge to give it a little something special.
I’m not an overly materialistic person. I do like my stuff, but I love experiences more. Without a doubt, when considering things/experiences that I can’t have too many of, kisses from my husband and children are far and away the first thing on that list, followed by travels to new places. However, there are some other things I can never have too many of (in no particular order):
Pillows on my bed
Fresh flowers on my kitchen table
Hot out of the oven chocolate chip cookies with cold milk
Fresh squeezed lemonade on a hot day
Pretty cloth napkins and tablecloths
If washcloths are on your list too, you are in luck today! I’m still entertaining myself knitting and crocheting washcloths for myself and for gifts. I get bored doing the same ones over and over, so I keep trying out new knit cotton washcloth patterns. For this pattern, I knit the Woven Lattice Cable Stitch for the base of the washcloth and edged it with a simple double crochet stitch.
