washcloths by Cocoa BeansI've been seeing more and more people selling hand-knit washcloths and scrubbies on Etsy, and according to many they are even better at cleaning than store bought sponges. Bonus-they are eco-friendly and will last far longer than sponges (and you can pick colors to match your kitchen!) Heres what you'll need:
-ball of yarn, preferably on the rough side (cheap yarn should do fine)
-knitting needles, smaller or larger depending on how stretchy or tight you want your stitches
Create a square by casting on a multiple of 10 stitches and using the moss stitch to create a bumpy texture.
row 1: K1, P1 -repeat til end
row 2: P1, K1 -repeat til end
continue this pattern until you reach the desired length, and bind off.
Be careful not to use scalding hot water as this may "felt" the yarn. Enjoy!
