There’s still plenty of time to join our Spring Home Decor KAL/CAL here on Ravelry! Today, we share a free knitted wash cloth pattern you can knit up in a jiffy using your favorite cotton yarn for your chance to win one of our fabulous KAL prizes. We also have a special bonus giveaway just for our blog readers (keep reading for more on that!).
If you prefer not to work two strands of a fingering weight yarn together in your project, you can substitute in a single strand of worsted weight cotton to make an equally lovely wash cloth.
