I am still making washcloths. This time using a free pattern of the day, Designed by Julie A. Bolduc. You can find the instructions for the stitch if you are a member of her site at Static Stitch.
I really like this pattern as it works up fast, is dense (meaning not a bunch of holes), and had enough texture to scrub off dead skin. I think I will be using this pattern more in the future. If you like it you should bookmark the site.
I used 31 stitches to start, cotton yarn and an "I" hooks.
