  • 1 skein of Habu Textile’s Cork Chenille, 100% cotton. I made one washcloth with the color Bleached White and one with Off White.
  • US #3 knitting needles, circular or straight


  • 1 skein of Habu Textile’s Cork Chenille, 100% cotton. I used the color Charcoal.
  • A set of US #3 double pointed needles

NOTE: Each washcloth and the scrubbing mitt use a bit more than half a ball of Cork Chenille. However, like most yarn companies, Habu’s yardage (and weight) is somewhat approximate, so there may be instances when you can eek out two 7 3/4 x 7 3/4 inch washcloths with one ball, but to be on the safe side you may consider casting on 40-43 stitches instead of 46. Or, another option, knit up the washcloths and scrubbing mitt as written and then use the remainders to make some striped or colorblocked variations!

22 1/2 stitches = 4 inches in garter stitch

Washcloth: 7 3/4 x 7 3/4 inches
