Here is a trio of velvety-soft cotton cloths in classic, subtle textures for bath or kitchen duty. Knit from unmercerized sport weight cotton, these cloths have a lighter hand, making them perfect for next-to-the-skin use, especially for babies or those needing special care. Each cloth features a simple knit/purl texture that looks great on both sides of the fabric. Washcloths are an excellent choice for beginning knitters or when an unchallenging project is needed.
Substituting yarn and/or needles may result in an overall variation in size and fabric density.
