Bauhaus Washcloth

Lion Brand« Lion® Cotton

GAUGE:

19 stitches + 24 rows = 4 in. [10 cm] in Washcloth pattern. When you match the gauge in a pattern, your project will be the size specified in the pattern and the materials specified in the pattern will be sufficient. The needle or hook size called for in the pattern is based on what the designer used, but it is not unusual for gauge to vary from person to person. If it takes you fewer stitches and rows to make your swatch, try using a smaller size hook or needles; if more stitches and rows, try a larger size hook or needles.

Bauhaus Washcloth Reviewed by Krystal on 2011-06-17 *****
I made one of these for my husband after he got jealous of the flower shaped washcloths I made myself. I made mine a few rows shorter and it turned out great! (I carried the unused color up the side and it looked fine)
