A washcloth with a fancy edge has been a favoured project of late. Knitted up in a creamy, organic cotton, this simple soft washcloth with its decorative edge will make a lovely little gift.
Picot Edge Washcloth & Soap
I found the pattern I used on the Churchmouse Yarns website in their Wee Ones pattern library. It was not a free download and cost $6AUS. I purchased it because it looked lovely and seemed simple and the pattern can be made up into a baby's blanket easily. (This is not a sponsored recommendation, I just bought the pattern and happily and successfully knitted it up:)
I developed a few new knitting moves as I made this washcloth. This You-tube clip, for the Knitted Cast-on Method, helped me learn a new-to-me technique that is different to how I would normally get the beginning stitches on my needle. I also found this You-tube clip, for making a Picot Edge, really helped me visualise how to create that decorative edging.
While much of this washcloth is simple plain knitting, I think the picot edge is very pretty and makes it just that little bit special.
