This washcloth is part of a washcloth set called the Sampler Stitch Washcloth Collection. Each washcloth uses a different stitch, but they all pair really well together. You can find the other washcloth patterns HERE.
Out of all of the washcloths this *might* be my favorite.
In fact this stitch may be one of my all time favorite stitches. The stitch pattern is so simple (only a two stitch repeat!) and it creates the most beautiful little bobble-ly texture!
This stitch is also super versatile. This stitch can be used for just about anything – blankets, scarves hats, etc..
I love how modern it looks (especially in a neutral color!), but this stitch also has a fun and quirky vibe to it. The possibilities with this stitch are endless. Enjoy the free pattern below!
