Simple Little Knit Cloth: Free Knitting Pattern

I love using these small knit washcloths!  They fit right in the palm of my hand.  The cloths work great as coasters, since they absorb condensation from iced drinks.  They also make cute gift sets when tied up in a bundle.

100% cotton yarn
US size 2 needles
