Seed Stitch Washcloth

[img:1]

Super easy to make. Finished size is about 9" or 10" square. It's almost embarassing to write this up as a patttern, because it's so simple, but what they hey. New knitters - it's perfect for you. Experienced knitters - seed stitch is a great gentle scrubby texture for washcloths.
