Naughty Reindeer Washcloth

This is a fun one! I adapted it from this chart. I’m giving you plenty of time to make tons of these for the holidays and give them out as gifts. But choose your recipient wisely! Not everyone will appreciate the naughty humor.

I’m using Lion Cotton (worsted weight) in Poppy Red. You can use any color worsted weight cotton yarn you want.

Gauge is not that important (it’s a washcloth for crying out loud!), but if you must know: 4.5 sts per inch

Here is a chart for you chart people. I’m a must type everything out in detail person, so here’s that.

This pattern is knit from the bottom up on US 6 straight needles

CO 44 stitches (I use longtail cast on)

Knit 1 row

R1, 2, 3, 4, 5: K2, P2 (repeat until end)

R6, 8, 10, 12, 14, 16, 18, 20, 22, 24, 26: purl all stitches

 

R7, 9, 11, 13, 15, 17, 19, 21, 23, 25: knit all stitches

**Please note: There are less rows of stockinette between the reindeer and the 2×2 ribbing in the washcloth pictured than in the chart and written pattern. I added more to the pattern to make it longer and more square

Now be careful or you might find tiny knit reindeer all over your house! They just can’t seem to keep their hooves off each other.
