Yoshi Washcloth!

Before posting this pattern, I wanted to thank all the people who have left such positive and supportive comments here or on Ravelry about this series of Mario-gang washcloths. I'm having a ton of fun making them and I'm so glad that other people are enjoying the patterns as well! The Bowser version was posted on Knitting Pattern Central, so now the traffic on this blog has increased tenfold just in the last week. I'm honestly quite surprized at all the interest, but I'm just glad everyone is enjoying something that I created.

Anyway, now it's time for:

The Yoshi 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 Yoshi cloth is a simpler pattern than some of the other ones in the series, but the small details give it the impression of highly complex workmanship. (This will impress non-knitters, but in reality the cloth is just knit and purl stitches.)


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


  1. awesome! i'm glad you keep making them the same dimensions: all the easier for me to assemble them as one blanket! i've only made bowser and i'm working on luigi now, but my boyfriend is really excited for his soon-to-be new blanket!

  2. So cool! Thanks for sharing your patterns!

  3. Congratulations on the traffic! I linked to you last week too, I just love your patterns. I'll be sure to include this one in my next Geek Craft Roundup.
