Pattern Description:

What better to give your newly mated friends than something they can use to keep each other clean? Have fun knitting this super easy washcloth in any worsted weight cotton yarn-- the cheaper the better, nothing more than good old "kitchen cotton" needed. Included is a chart for the washcloth in its entirety-- and a chart for every letter in the alphabet, making this project super customizable!

The way this works: print the main chart for the washcloth, then find the monograms you need for the lovers' initials. Using the boxes in bold as placement guides, pencil in the X's for each initial. Then cast on, and away you go! Buy a few shades of yarn and make them a set-- the secret of kitchen cotton is that it gets softer each time your friends wash and dry them (in the machine, of course-- no hand washing needed here!).

For a larger cloth, just add to the seed stitch border-- there are three rows of seed stitch on the chart, but you could easily expand your washcloth by cutting out the chart, taping it onto a blank piece of paper, and drawing boxes outwards in all four directions. Have fun!
