I have knitted and crocheted a couple washcloths before but I have never really followed a pattern before. In the past I usually did a washcloth when learning a new stitch or when I learned how to crochet a few years ago. I did washcloths to learn to single crochet, and double crochet. With Easter coming up in a couple weeks and a new baby cousin on the way. I was in the mood to knit something quick, easy, and for the new baby.
I set to work flipping through all sorts of Leisure Art books and the cutest thing caught my eye, a washcloth with a bunny knitted into it. I found it in Dishcloths for Special Days by Julie A. Ray. How perfect it could be for a boy or a girl. I started digging through my stash of Lily’s Sugar n Cream. I found the pattern to have easy to follow directions. I do have three suggestions something that I found to be helpful while knitting and they are to use a row counter to keep up with your rows, to use two place markers placed after the first five stitches and at the end of the row before the last five stitches, and the third suggestion is to place a safety pin (I like the clover place markers) on the side that you do the pattern rows as a reminder that that is your right side. Also remember when you are changing from knit to purl or purl to knit pull your yarn back and forth between your needles and not over. This is how you mess up and add stitch. Good Luck!!
