Knitted Washcloths

Google "knitted dishcloth patterns" and you'll get a ton of responses - for free patterns! The dragonfly pattern in this photo is one of my favorites. They are super easy and fast to knit up. Pair a washcloth with a beautiful bar of soap and give it as a gift - this gift is so appreciated! I've made over a dozen of these. It's also a good way to practice new stitches - maybe a lace pattern or a cable. I use the inexpensive Sugar & Cream cotton yarn; it knits up beautifully and comes in so many pretty colors. I've done the dragonfly several times, a fish, a rose, a lighthouse, a martini glass, a flamingo, the letter "S" and the letter "H", a hummingbird ... no kidding, there are a gazillion free patterns out there.
