Shamrock Washcloth Pattern

Hi Knitters,
The new Shamrock Washcloth is up and available for purchase. It is the perfect little St. Patrick's Day gift. The two in the photo above are knit in Crystal Palace Cotton Chenille. They are extra squishy and soft, perfect for a child or baby washcloth.
The Shamrock washcloth above is knit up in Sugar-n-Cream cotton. This one is sturdy enough for the kitchen.
Pattern information:
Finished size:
10 inches by 10 inches
Crystal Palace Cotton Chenille in Pistachio #1208 and Fern #4043 (the 1rst and 3rd photos) any shades of green will work great!
Sugar-n-Cream Cotton in Hot Green #18712 and Key Lime Pie #19713 (the 2nd photo) any shades of green or variegated will work great!
US size 6 for the Cotton Chenille
US size 7 for the Sugar-n-Cream
4 stitches per inch in stockinette stitch
Skills needed:
cast on
knit stitch
pick up stitches along an edge (This is the only additional skill required above the skills needed to make the Sweetheart Washcloth and I will do a demonstration of this soon for anyone interested)
Crochet edging is optional and uses a chain, single crochet and slip stitch.
Easy if you know how to do the skills listed above! 

The construction is simple. You knit the stem and the center top leaf. Then you pick up stitches along the right and left sides of the stem to knit the other two leaves the same as the first. It's repetitive. That's it! You can do it!
