Knitted Washcloths, Facecloths, Spa Cloths, Dishcloths - Free Pattern

This pattern was recently featured in an article in Let's Knit magazine.  You can read all about it here...

For those of you that have been waiting for this pattern (I had a number of requests for a knitted version of my Splashtime Washcloths) here it is.  This pattern is aimed at beginner knitters and would make a great first project.  If you need to learn the basic knit stitch I recommend watching some videos on Youtube, there are many to choose from.

Splashtime Knitted Washcloths


2 50g balls Drops Safran or any other cotton 4ply (makes 2 washcloths)
Darning needle


5mm (8) needles


20 x 20 cm (8 x 8 inches)

Abbreviations / Terms

k - knit
st(s) - stitch(s)

Notes: Yarn is held double throughout to create the two-tone marbled effect.  If you would like a single colour you may use 1 strand of Aran (worsted) yarn instead.  Knitted in Garter stitch throughout (knit every row).

With 2 strands and 5mm (8) needles cast on 37 st's.

Row 1 k

Repeat row 1 until piece measures approx. 20 cm (8 inches) long.  Length should measure the same as width, if your tension is slightly different to mine you can just keep knitting until your piece measures the same as your width.

Cast off loosely and weave in ends.

These washcloths make great gifts or a great craft fair item.  You can read about my Craft Fair Idea #1 here...

If you are looking for a crochet version you can find that here...

If you would prefer a PDF printable copy of this pattern, this can be found in my Etsy and Ravelry stores...  The pattern includes a free copy of the belly band labels or these may be purchased separately.
