Staggered Parallelogram Washcloth Pattern


The design of this washcloth is made entirely of knit and purl stitches. This simple pattern repeat just staggers the knits and purls to form the raised texture of the parallelograms. This is a great beginner project,that produces a very usable and practical washcloth or dishcloth when you are done. I was able to knit the sample for this pattern in one morning while tending to small children. A variegated ring yarn would especially show off the raised pattern. The knit and purl combination knits a flat fabric, so there is no need for a border. The pattern looks basically the same from both sides of the washcloth, only the knits and purls are reversed. The 100% cotton yard suggested will be gentle to your skin or non-stick cookware. If you need some extra scrubbing power and don’t mind a little scratch, you may want to to try this in a worsted weight 100% hemp yarn.

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 d้cor or personal taste.

Size: 10 inches square,

Materials: 2 ozs or more of 100% cotton worsted weight yarn . a 2 ozs ball of Sugar-n-Cream yarn was used for the example.

Recommended Needles: Size 5, or the size you need for the proper gauge.

Recommended Gauge: 4 stitches and 6 rows per inch in stockinette stitch

Abbreviations:
CO – the number of stitches to cast on and begin with.

p-purl
