I love my old standard washcloth pattern, but when I come across another one that looks interesting I usually give it a try. This one came on the inside of the wrap for Sugar & Spice cotton yarn. I looked for the pattern on line to show what the original pattern was, but could not find it nor could I find the wrapper where I first saw it. The pattern was a huge washcloth – more like a face towel – so I sized it down. I do like this one, but I still like the old stand by pattern better.
