Bowser Washcloth!

So, as per the poll results (thanks to those who voted!), it's time to start introducing some bad guys to the Mario character washcloth lineup!

This is the first one that really seems appropriate black!

It's the Bowser Washcloth!


The finished product is 44 stitches wide and 61 rows long, just like the others, and is also worked from right to left instead of from bottom to top.

CO 44 stitches. Knit three rows. The next row (row 4) will be a WS row and the first row of the pattern chart (click to enlarge):

Start and end every row with K2. For the 40 stitches in between the edge stitches, follow the chart. Blank spaces are knit stitches for RS rows and purl stitches for WS rows. Dots are purl stitches for RS rows and knit stitches for WS rows.

After the chart is finished, you should be about to start a RS row. Knit this row and the next two (three rows total), then BO with knit stitches.

The Bowser cloth is probably the most complicated of the four patterns so far. However, it still only took me a couple of evenings to whip up the test cloth. I know it's been a month since the Peach cloth, and I'm trying to put out the cloths sooner. The next one will be Yoshi (since he was a close runner-up in the poll), and I'll try to get that out around the end of the month of March. Watch for it!

(Psst! Looking for the other Mario-gang washcloth designs? There are also Mario, Luigi, Princess Peach, Yoshi, and Boo patterns available!)
