Knit Washcloths Pattern – Merry Stripes Washcloth

Knit washcloths patternI am still knitting washcloths, three per Christmas gift package, and for this series of washcloths, I designed the pattern.

I really like the slipped and twisted stitches, and I think the pattern would be great to adapt for a knitted hat.

Yarn: Lily Sugar’n Cream Cottage Twists and Sugar’n Cream Ecru

Needle: Size 8


  • sl1K = slip one stitch knitwise
  • sl1P = slip one stitch purlwise

Knit Washcloths Pattern:

  • Cast on 47 stitches of color A.
  • Row 1: (WS) Using color A, purl entire row.
  • Row 2: Using color B, K3, *sl1K, K3, repeat from * to end.
  • Row 3: Using color B, P3, *sl1P, P3, repeat from * to end.
