I’ve been making a lot of these washcloths, to give as little gifts at Christmas time. I know most people make them as dishcloths but I think a couple of these along with a beautiful bar of soap will make a first-rate gift. They’re quick, which makes them rewarding to make. I’m still looking for another pattern that will compliment this one. It'll be a good way for me to practice new stitches and patterns. I love the smoothness of cotton after knitting with say, mohair.
