To make two Simple Stripe Washcloths, you’ll need…

  • Main Color: 1 skein of Purl Soho’s Field Linen, 100% linen. Each skein is 295 yards; approximately 107 yards required per washcloth. We used the colors Trowel Gray, Blue Heron, Electric Blue, Purple Plum, Ruby Pink, Red Onion, Red Radish, Carnelian Orange, and Warm Copper.
  • Contrast Color: 1 skein of Field Linen; approximately 26 yards required per washcloth. We used the color Queen Anne’s Lace.
  • US 2 (3mm), straight or 24-inch circular needles
  • If using straight needles: Two US 2 double pointed needles for I-Cord

NOTE: With just 1 skein of each color, you can reverse the Main and Contrast colors to make two additional washcloths. Also, if you’re thinking about making lots of washcloths, it’s helpful to know that one skein of the Contrast Color can make stripes for 11 washcloths.
