A dishcloth knitted with pure linen transforms an ordinary rag into a luxurious textile. Wendy Bernard demonstrates how to work with linen yarn to create a washcloth with an i-cord loop for hanging. The linen fiber resists mildew, is great for scrubbing, and gets softer with every use. This quick knitting project is a fun way to try out new stitch patterns—several of which are included in the PDF. Make a stack to give as a gift, or keep them for your own daily use.

  • Quince & Co. Sparrow (100% organic linen / 186 yards / 50 grams): 1 hank per washcloth

  • Two double point needles (dpn) US Size 3 (3.25mm)
