Garter Square Washcloths

Lion Brand« Cotton-Ease«

GAUGE:

18 sts + 34 rows = 4 in. (10 cm) in Garter st (k every row). When you match the gauge in a pattern, your project will be the size specified in the pattern and the materials specified in the pattern will be sufficient. The needle or hook size called for in the pattern is based on what the designer used, but it is not unusual for gauge to vary from person to person. If it takes you fewer stitches and rows to make your swatch, try using a smaller size hook or needles; if more stitches and rows, try a larger size hook or needles.

Reviewed by Danielle Shaw on 2012-09-27 *****
I didn't do the fully striped version of this, but for the two I made, I really liked the different border on the decrease half. However, I also give 5 stars to previous reviewers for the - k1, k2tog, yo, k2tog, k to end - decrease because I made a set as a gift and the uniform border was very nice on the solid color I used. Great project either way- I have many 100% cotton scraps that will soon turn into more of these pretty little washcloths!
