free knitting pattern (wash cloth patterns)
Cast on 35 stitches using 4.5mm straight needles
Knit 3 rows
Knit 3, K1, P1 repeat to last 3 stitches, K3
continue until it measures 8 inches then K3 rows and cast off in knit.
That's it, nice and simple.
Another variation (knitted in Debbie Bliss Cotton DK) bright purple for a friends birthday and a joy to knit with. Knits up slightly larger than the other cotton yarn. For the next one I'm going to try 4mm needles.
Cast on 40 stitches using 4.5 straight needles
Knit 2 rows
K1, P1 repeat to end
P1, K1 repeat to end
That's it a 4 row pattern. Knit until piece measures 9inches, which should be the same size as the width. Wrap with a bar of soap. The free printable handknits tag can be downloaded here
