Knitting Pattern ~ Ripple Washcloth

by Shelly Hazard

Hand-knit cotton washcloths are much softer than regular facecloths. Using unmercerized cotton makes care simple, just put them in the washer and dryer with your towels.


  • 1 skein 100% unmercerized cotton yarn (recommended: Sugar 'n Cream made by Lily)
  • pair of knitting needles, size 7


Cast on 48 stitches.

Knit three rows.

Row 4: *P4, K5, P3*
Row 5: *K2, P2, K3, P2, K3*
Row 6: *P2, K2, P5, K2, P1*
Row 7: *P2, K7, P3*

Repeat rows 4-7 for ten rows then knit three rows. Bind off and weave in the yarn ends.

NOTE: anything found between * should be repeated across the row. For example, *K1,P1* means K1,P1 across the whole row of stitches.
