The other day I posted about my favorite dishcloths. I mentioned my 2 in 1: Wash & Scrub Cloth. It is a great pattern for using up leftover yarn. I also like the fact that the pattern is so easy to memorize. I can knit it while watching TV or carrying on a conversation. It also knits up in an interesting pattern and would make a nice gift.
I use 100% cotton and US size 7 needles. You can use whatever yarn or needle size you want to get your desired look. If you want a bigger cloth or smaller cloth, just add or subtract two stitches. I also found the different brands of cotton yarn come out in different sizes. Experiment. Have fun with it.
The cloth has a smooth side and a textured side. Smooth for washing, textured for scrubbing – thus “wash ‘n’ scrub! Now, this cloth is not just for dishes. No, it also a wash/face cloth. Use the smooth side on your face for washing and the textured side for exfoliating your skin. (Like my infomercial lingo!). LOL.
Who could ask for more? Oh ya – you need the pattern! Here it is. Have fun. Knit a bunch. Make them in a variety of colors. Give them out to family and friends. Sell the finished cloths at bazaars. But, the pattern itself is free, let’s keep it that way. Happy Knitting!
