Knit washclothes are fun to make and fun to use. I’ve got several listed over at Etsy now, and I ended up keeping many of the ones I made for myself! We’ve been using knit clothes that we inherited, and loved them so much I decided to give washcloth knitting a try. It’s really fun and easy, and also provides nearly instant gratification since they can be finished so quickly.
If you’re looking for some patterns to get you started, try Dish and Washcloth Mania, Bev’s Country Cottage, or the Knit List.
