As a reminder each month in 2022 I will be releasing a different washcloth pattern featuring fun design elements to try, as well as colors that represent the mood of the month.
These projects check so many boxes:
Small & portable
Super interesting! The pattern & colors will change each month
Easy way to learn or improve a skill on a small scale like lace or cables
Great palette cleanser between larger more complicated patterns or projects
Practical & versatile; at the end of the year, you will have 12 or more washcloths that can be used from the bathroom to the kitchen and everywhere in between.
They make great gifts!
March Washcloth of the Month: Lucky Charm
This month I choose to use the cloverleaf eyelet pattern for an open and airy design. Since March is the month of St. Patrick's Day I decided to go with green of course! I also knit it up in the solid neutral color of Soft Ecru.
This month's pattern includes 2 versions depending on what kind of edge you like. I am not a fan of edges, preferring to let the pattern shine. Because of this one version starts right off on row 1 with the pattern stitch featuring an i-cord edge on the side. This kind of edging is not noticeable on the front so does not take away from the pattern but allows the washcloth the lay flat.
I know a lot of people prefer to have an edge stitch all the way around, so I also designed it with a garter stitch edge on all 4 sides. The stitch count is still the same, so it's an easy modification. The i-cord edge version is shown below in the solid Soft Ecru color, with the garter stitch edge version on the top in the Key Lime Pie colorway.
US 8 (5mm) needles
Lily Sugar & Cream 100 % cotton yarn Key Lime Pie & Soft Ecru
1 skein for each color, or 2 skeins of the same color will make 3 washcloths
