Basketweave Washcloth Pattern


This washcloth has a basketweave pattern with a seed stitch border. The patterning comes from using combinations of knit and purl stitches. This washcloth is nicely textured to help with cleaning , whether you are cleaning your kitchen counters or using the washcloth to wash your face in the morning. The 100% cotton yarn will keep from damaging your non-stick cookware, and will not be too rough on your skin.

The border is knit right into the project, not something that is added afterwards. The seed stitch and basketweave pattern are naturally flat and square. You may not need to block this washcloth, unless you want it to look absolutely perfect for a gift presentation. The seed stitch used for the border you create by knitting into the purl stitches, and purling in the knit stitches, from whichever side you are viewing at any point. This creates a flat border with some texture.

The basketweave pattern is created by knitting for four stitches, then purling for four stitches. The pattern reverses every five rows.
Worsted weight cotton yarn is available at most large craft retailers and also at many smaller local yarn stores. Several colors and prints are available to help you coordinate to décor or personal taste.
