Simple Holiday Washer:

This easy washcloth pattern is a classic. It's often referred to on the web as "Grandma's favorite" washcloth, and it's sure to become your favorite, too.

This one is knit in Christmas colors to make holiday cleanup a little more festive, but once you make one, you'll be making them in all kinds of colors for all sorts of occasions.


  • About 70 yards of 100 percent cotton yarn (I used most of a skein of Sugar'n Cream in Mistletoe Ombre, color 00138)
  • one pair size 8 US needles
  • crochet hook or yarn needle


Seven stitches and 9 rows per inch in bias garter stitch. Gauge is not critical.


Finished size is 9 inches square. Make yours larger or smaller by increasing more or fewer stitches.


  1. Cast on 4 stitches.
  2. Knit 1, yarn over, knit to the end of the row.
  3. Continue in this manner until you have 50 stitches on your needle.
  4. Knit 1, yarn over, knit two together, knit until you are three stitches from the end of the row, then knit 2 together and knit one.
  5. Continue in this manner until 4 stitches remain.
  6. Bind off. Weave in ends.
