This cloth uses only knit and purl stitches to reveal a shield shape on a square washcloth. A great beginner project! And a handy gift for your young knight who needs a little encouragement to wash her face.

For a washcloth, use cotton, hemp, or linen yarn (the hemp will feel much softer after a machine-wash-and-dry)
For squares for an afghan or scarf, use smooth, warm yarn like a wool/acrylic.

Use the needle size suggested by your yarn’s tag.
