Wario is like Mario’s crazy half-cousin-once-removed. He dresses like Mario and Luigi, but he’s not in it to save a princess - he’s in it for the money! He’s a lot of fun, and has been requested many times by people who like these patterns. So here he is!

This pattern is nothing but knit and purl stitches, and it includes a chart for the stitch pattern as well as alternative written-out instructions. I made the test cloth black because I had black cotton yarn I needed to use up, but I would recommend yellow, 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.
