This circular washcloth is easy as, well, pi.

Knit flat with short row shaping, this dishcloth uses Navajo Plying to create a cushy and O so soft organic washcloth perfect for pampered bubbas and their families. Here’s a super YouTube vid on Navajo Plying: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=X1-ZAuw0tik

O for Organic washcloths feature a provisional CO and garter grafting, making them utterly seamless and reversible. Plus, smaller wedges mean that your finished cloth really is circular. Last, but not least, a few unusual wraps mean that you have no unsightly bulky “nipple” in the middle of each circle.

I have chosen to knit this on 6.5mm needles, producing a circle approximately 8 inches in diameter from one skein of yarn. If you choose to increase your stitch count or needle size, be forewarned that you may fall a tiny bit short on yarn.
