Giveaway & Free Knitted Wash Cloth Pattern

There’s still plenty of time to join our Spring Home Decor KAL/CAL here on Ravelry! Today, we share a free knitted wash cloth pattern you can knit up in a jiffy using your favorite cotton yarn for your chance to win one of our fabulous KAL prizes. We also have a special bonus giveaway just for our blog readers (keep reading for more on that!).

If you prefer not to work two strands of a fingering weight yarn together in your project, you can substitute in a single strand of worsted weight cotton to make an equally lovely wash cloth.

  8. I'm planning on making a few hand towels for my mother. She really likes my hand knit dish cloths, so these will be a nice addition. Savannagal on Rav.

  9. I'm going to crochet some handy cotton baskets to hold trinkets (probably miscellaneous legos and rocks from my kids, rather than the jewelry or pretty shells I envision as I make them).

  12. I knit dishcloths and dress dishcloths and gift them. I think it is time to keep one! This is quite lovely. I may need to grab needles & check my 'stash' right away ; )

  13. Gotta knit that Spa-riffic washcloth!

  14. Love this and ty! Sorry about the anonymous posting here, none of my accounts are logging in, beadmaster on raverly.

  20. My daughter is moving into a new apartment on July 1st and I've been looking for something I can make for her as a housewarming gift. I think a couple of these clothes and maybe extending them to make matching hand towels would be just perfect!

  21. I started a blanket 5/8, just one day before you announced the KAL. I thought I'd give it a pass, but I've always thought Frankie Brown is a genius, and wanted to try her spiral 10 stitch, so today I cast on and will be making a circle 'til I run out of yarn. It should be a good size for a cushion, or maybe a hotpad. KittenWhiplash on rav.

  22. I need new washcloths. This is a great pattern.

  23. I have just retired and moved into a brand new home. While this is not our first home it is our first brand new home. I would love to do some hand and face wash clothes to match. These would be to go into our guest bathroom, so when our adult children visit it would look very nice.

  24. I want to knit up a wash cloth or 2. Amyburl

  25. I love this Spa-Riffic Wash Cloth and will be knitting it with my Knitter's Pride Needles. Thank you for the free pattern! Sandy4Cats on Ravelry

    1. Oooopss! I was wrong, my set of KP needles doesn't have a needle that large. Maybe I'll win and increase my sizes!

  26. Dishclothes and I would like to try making a pillow!!!

  27. I just finished knitting this but can't get it to load on IG but will try again tomorrow. I love how fast it knit up and that it's reversible!! I see many more of these in my future! Thank you.

  28. Knit dish clothes are my go to knitting when I don't want to think too hard!

  31. Dishcloths and a couple of spa cloths.
    rav: cocoGirl

  32. I don't do them as dish "rags". Yarn is too precious. I love the feel of a handknit cloth on my face. Thanks for the pattern.

  33. Oh no, I am really Late to the Party/Contest??

  34. I am making some dishclothed as I have never done one Ordered 2 dish clothes booklets-2 from Leisure Arts by Debbie Trainor. I am using Gems superfine fingering yarn, not worsted.
