This pattern is available for free.

This Fern Lace washcloth pattern is included as part of my handout on beginning lace techniques. Two other cloths are also included in the handout, which covers techniques such as yarnovers, variable stitch counts, reading charts, and the dreaded “no-stitch” box. Written directions are included for the chart-averse.

These cloth patterns are suitable for use with yarns from sport to worsted weight, as written; heavier or finer yarns may be substituted by using fewer or more pattern repetitions.

This particular cloth pattern also makes a great swatch for the Kiri shawl, as it’s the same lace pattern, but in a rectangular format.

The handout is available directly here.

Odd rows 1-7 in the written version of the Fern Lace Cloth (page 6 of the document) contain an error; k2tog and SSK have been swapped. The correct directions for these rows are:

Row 1: k5, [k3, k2tog, YO, k1, YO, SSK, k4] 3 times, k4
Row 3: k5, [k2, k2tog, k1, YO, k1, YO, k1, SSK, k3] 3 times, k4
Row 5: k5, [k1, k2tog, k2, YO, k1, YO, k2, SSK, k2] 3 times, k4
Row 7: k5, [k2tog, k3, YO, k1, YO, k3, SSK, k1] 3 times, k4
