Seed Stitch Washcloth

Published by Shana | Filed under Free, Knitting, Patterns

Completed Washcloth

Super easy to make. Finished size is about 9″ or 10″ square. It’s almost embarassing to write this up as a patttern, because it’s so simple, but what they hey. New knitters – it’s perfect for you. Experienced knitters – seed stitch is a great gentle scrubby texture for washcloths.

No gauge. It’s a washcloth. Walk on the wild side.

    These are the exact same instructions as you give for the Simple Weave Washcloth.

    They’re similar, but not the same.

    I don’t seem to be able to make this pattern to come out like the picture. My seed stitch is much tighter with no spaces in between than what you show. Your washcloth is lovely & I would like to duplicate it.
