Camp Washcloth



While unpacking at the campsite during our last vacation, I realized that we had forgotten a washcloth for doing the dishes! So, while my husband was fishing off the back of the canoe, I knitted a washcloth in the front.

Materials: Size 3 needles – I actually used two dpn's as they were the only ones I had with me.
Yarn: Sample of Color Changing cotton by Wolle's Yarn Creations
Gauge: Um, not really an issue with this pattern. A larger needle/yarn would only yield a larger washcloth or a more dense washcloth.

CO 2 sts
Pattern Row: K1, yo, k to end
Repeat pattern row until there are 33 stitches on the needle.

Now:
Knit stockinette stitch for 6 rows
knit Garter stitch for 6 rows
Repeat 3 times, ending with stockinette rows

To decrease:
On Right Side: ssk, knit to end
On Wrong Side: K2 tog, knit to end
Repeat these two rows until two stitches remain, then bo 2 sts and weave in ends.
