Our Corner-To-Corner Washcloth Bundle comes in a Twelve Colors Bundle, which makes a dozen washcloths (we used this one!), or in 3-skein bundles to make a set of three. Choose from six 3-skein palettes: Sunrise, Field + Sky, Morning Fog, Lakeside, Rhubarb, and Salt Water.

To make just one Corner-To-Corner Washcloth, you’ll need…

  • 1 skein of Purl Soho’s Picnic Cotton, 100% Peruvian Pima cotton. Each skein is 164 yards/ 50 grams; approximately 134 yards required.

No matter how many washcloths you’re making, you’ll also need…

26 stitches and 52 rows (or 26 “ridges”) = 4 inches in garter stitch

Finished Dimensions: Approximately 9½ inches square

You may find that your washcloth comes out looking a bit more kite-shaped than square. Not to worry, this is normal and a result of the knit 2 together decreases being slightly looser than the knit front and back increases. A good wet-block or steam will do the trick!
