The Simple Knit Scrubby Washcloth is the perfect beginner knitting pattern. Choose a color that coordinates with your bathroom decor and use these knit scrubby washcloths at the sink or while you bathe. The good news is they are easy to wash by machine and the polyester fiber air dries quickly, so cleaning them is a breeze. We're confident you can never have too many washcloths and when the pattern is this easy, you can work up a bunch in no time. These knitted washcloths also make the perfect housewarming gift. Anyone would be lucky to receive such a beautiful and practical knit gift.

I love scrubby yarn, and this pattern is perfect for it! The pattern is so easy, you can make several in just a few days. This is the perfect gift for a new homeowner, new parents, or anyone you know who could use a new cloth. I love that there are so many different colors of scrubby yarn too, so you can make one for everyone you know, in the colors they love.
