This Garter Chevron Washcloth is pattern #3 in the 2017 Knitted Kitchen Blog Hop. It’s a simple design with just knits and purls, and is available in 9 inch and 12 inch sizes. The pattern includes both written and charted versions of the instructions. There is also a video tutorial that focuses on reading and following the charts.
The Knitted Kitchen Blog Hop is a knit-along event hosted by the Underground Crafter, and I couldn’t be more excited to be a part of it. Together with a great team of designers and will be bringing you 48 washcloth patterns throughout the year. Each pattern will include a photo and/or video tutorial, so it’s a fun way to learn new stitches and techniques. Join in and share your progress on the Facebook group or Ravelry group!
Lion Brand has generously provided us with yarn for our designs. I’ve chosen their 24/7 Cotton for all my washcloths and am really enjoying working with it. For more information about the event and links to the patterns, be sure to visit the main #KnittedKitchen post. I hope you’ll join in the fun!

A downloadable pdf of this pattern is also available in my Craftsy store or on Ravelry, for a $1 fee. The fee for the pdf format is to offset the advertising revenue lost when you print or download the pattern rather than viewing it online.
