Lacy Lady Washcloth

Lion Brand® Lion® Cotton


16 sts x 32 rows = 4" [10 cm] in Garter st (knit 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.

Making a Gauge Swatch

With A, cast on 32 stitches. Knit until piece is 8 inches long. Bind off, weave in ends.

With B, cast on 5 sts.
Row 1 K 1, yo, k2tog, yo, k 2 - 6 sts
Rows 2, 4 and 6 Knit
Row 3 K 2, yo, k2tog, yo, k 2 - 7 sts
Row 5 K 3, yo, k2tog, yo, k 2 - 8 sts
Row 7 K 4, yo, k2tog, yo, k 2 - 9 sts
Row 8 Bind off 4 sts, k to end – 5 sts.
Repeat rows 1-8 until lace edging is 40 in [1 m] long. Bind off all sts on last row.

With large-eyed blunt needle, sew lace to washcloth, gathering 3” [7.6 cm] of lace at the corners. Join ends of edging. Weave in ends.

Love this darling pattern! I am a beginner well almost intermediate knitter and just about finished this. I used Variegated blue cotton yarn and white trim so very pretty. I hope to make two for Christmas gifts with a gift of bath salts or fancy soaps.
