KNIT

Pattern Leafy washcloths by Megan Goodacre
Yarn : Fibra Natura Cottonwood, Erika Knight Gossypium Cotton and Blue Sky Fibres Organic Cotton 
Needle : 4mm
Great pattern for knitters to learn basic increase and decrease stitches. 
Love the garter stitch leaf especially. I dropped the middle rows on the stockinette version to make a more plump leaf.
