While browsing through a bin of yarn this past weekend, this Scrub It from Mary Maxim struck me as interesting. A sample cloth was available on the display rack, and I found it right up my recent alley of creating wash cloths for the house.
After searching Ravelry for 30+ minutes, I was coming up empty handed on a simple washcloth/dishcloth pattern. !!! I know, right?!?! There literally are hundreds of patterns out there, but I couldn't find a simple, easy peasy pattern. **shrug**
So, I made up my own. Super simple. Easy Peasy!
This yarn calls for size 5mm knitting needles, so I used my H8 (5mm) hook.
The pattern established is a multiple of 2 (plus one).
I chained 32 +1 (33 chains), resulting in a cloth 9" wide.
Row 1: Sc in 2nd ch from hook, dc in next ch. Repeat *sc in next ch, dc in next ch* across the row, ending with a dc. Turn. (32 stitches)
Row 2: Ch 1. Sc in first dc, dc in next sc. Repeat *sc in next dc, dc in next sc* across the row, ending with a dc. Turn. (32 stitches)
Repeat Row 2 until desired length achieved.
I quite literally ended my final row with 3 inches of yarn left! (Just enough to tie off and weave the end in!) Now, my toughest decision to make: do I use the cloth for our dishes, or for our faces?!!?!?
