This post has been edited to acknowledge the authors of the patterns and their Ravelry links.
My sincere apologies to all four who share their patterns for free.
What do you knit the grandson who seems to have more clothes than he could possibly need? Who already has socks and singlets and nappies (diapers) and blankets and wraps galore?
Washcloths, of course. But these are not for washing, oh no! These are burp cloths - so much more interesting to look at than a nappy hanging round mum's neck or over dad's shoulder.
And so, I present for your viewing pleasure: Ben's burp cloths. All are knitted in Cleckheaton Fiddle De Dee 100% cotton which is both machine washable and dryable. All took less than two hours to complete and all used less than one 50g skein of yarn. None have yet been blocked.
Quacking Up by Elaine Fitzpatrick. There is a pattern for a matching bib too.
Below is Airplane, Free by Susan Mrenna and Giddy-up by Amy-lynne Mitchell.
The final two are Knitted "B" dishcloth and Knitted Musical Notes by Rhonda White
