This easy garter-stitch blanket is based on the washcloth pattern our grannies used to make. We’ve added a pretty picot edge to dress it up, but you can leave it unadorned if you like. The washcloth makes a nice shower or housewarming gift tied up with a bar of soap. For a grown-up throw or afghan—just keep on knitting!

This blanket or washcloth is worked diagonally from one corner, increased to a triangle midway, then decreased to the opposite corner.

We’ve added a free addendum to the pattern for knitting the washcloth with Rowan Creative Linen. Find the addendum and more details on the Creative Linen Washcloth Project page.
