This is the female counterpart to the Mario and Luigi washcloth patterns. No longer portrayed only as the damsel in distress, Princess Peach now hurls enough red shells at the boys to deserve to be included in the party!

This pattern is nothing but knit and purl stitches, but it gives a good-looking final product. The PDF file includes a chart for the stitches, as well as alternative instructions for the chart-phobic. I made the first test cloth black because I had black cotton yarn I needed to use up, but I would recommend pink, of course! It’s a more complex pattern than most textured washcloths, but still very quick and easy to knit.

All the Nintendo-themed washcloths are designed to be exactly the same size (25 x 25 cm/10 x 10 inches), so they can also be used as afghan squares and they should all line up nicely with one another. The charts included can be used as double-knitting templates as well by treating RS knit stitches as colour A and RS purl stitches as colour B, excluding the garter stitch edge. Note that for double-knitting you will need twice as much yarn (70-80 yards of each colour) because you are basically knitting two squares at once.
