Basic Skills Necessary:

  • Basic increase and decrease

Pattern Description:

Fishy fishy fishy oh!

This beginners pattern is for little bath mitts and washcloths that are just the thing for imaginative little brains during bathtime. They are perfectly sized for kiddy hands and make sudsing up fun. This is a knit pattern, great for new knitters.

If you use a sturdy cotton yarn, such as Lily Sugar'n Cream, these mitts will survive all the machine washing you can throw at it. I do suggest handwashing your fishy first since some cotton yarn bleeds slightly on the first wash. After that, it does wonderfully in the machine with your towels and other washcloths.

  • cotton yarn, 1 skein
  • Size 6 needles
