Labyrinth Washcloth

Crochet version

labyrinth washcloth

A three-circuit labyrinth in eyelets. For those days when you're not sure you'll ever reach your goal.

Materials

Worsted weight cotton (sample was made with Lion Cotton in white), about 60 yds

Needles that give you a gauge of 5 st/in. This is if you want to make a standard 9" cloth. If not, use needles that give you a fabric you like with the yarn you use. (The sample was made using US4/3.5mm.)

Yarn needle for weaving in ends

Optional: Celtic Knot Soap from Eclectic Lady

Please note:

  • The graph includes all rows.
  • There are two "rest" rows between each eyelet row.

Bind off. Block as desired. (Please note: because all the decreases slant the same way, there will be some biasing. Blocking will help.)
