Knitting garter stitch was never so rewarding! Relax into the meditative rhythm of all-over knit stitches and enjoy the beauty of color.

This collection of six washcloths helps you brush up on your knitting skills. Stripes, knitting on the bias, mitered squares, and garter stitch intarsia techniques take you from beginning to intermediate skills in easy steps. No purling needed! Links to video tutorials help you with unfamiliar techniques.

Use a cotton or cotton-blend fine- or light-weight yarn (CYC 2 or 3) to make these soft and absorbent projects. This is a perfect time to try out a colorful pack of mini skeins.

Yarn amounts vary based on yarn chosen and whether you want to knit all six designs. Total yardage for all six washcloths shown is about 108 yards 99 m each of five colors.
