Cumulus Cloths

Lion Brand« Cotton-Ease®


15 stitches = 4 in. (10 cm) in Garter stitch (knit every stitch on every row) with 2 strands of yarn held together. 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.

Making a Gauge Swatch


1. Washcloths are knit with 2 strands of yarn held together.
2. Yarn amount is sufficient for one of each cloth.

With 1 strand each of A and B (or A and C, or A and B) held together, cast on 35 stitches. Work in Garter stitch (knit every stitch on every row) until piece measures about 9 1/2 in. (24 cm) from beginning. Bind off.

Weave in ends.

Reviewed by Danielle Shaw on 2012-07-02 *****
With extra cotton ease from the Daily Grind dishtowel pattern I crocheted (as handtowels for the bathroom) I stitched these up in the matching A & B color patterns and I just love the set. I may add a rug to the set as I love working with cotton ease, and I think all together 3 towels, a rug and maybe 9 washcloths will make a perfect gift set. The washcloths are so soft and thick, and there's nothing I love more than a quick and almost mindless knit. The color combination and cotton ease make these so much nicer than a plain ol' cotton garter cloth.
