Hand knit washcloths are an unexpected luxury that’s not on anyone’s list but would be if they only knew the pleasure! Our set of New Log Cabin Washcloths has its eye on texture. Blue Sky’s organic Skinny Cotton plays the straight guy to Habu’s uber-playful Natural Cover Cotton.


  • 2 skeins of Blue Sky’s Skinny Cotton, 100% organic cotton. We used Organic Birch and Coral.
  • 1 skein of Habu’s Natural Cover Cotton, 100% cotton. We used Red.
  • US #5 knitting needles, straight or circular


  • 6 stitches = 1 inch in garter stitch, using the Skinny Cotton
  • 5 1/2 stitches = 1 inch in garter stitch, using the Natural Cover Cotton

Finished Dimensions: 8 inches x 8 inches
