I’m very excited to announce the very first ImaginAcres knitting pattern!

I love it because it’s simple and quick to knit, but doesn’t look it! Ours is currently feeling very at home in our colorful bathroom where it lives with a tribe of gnomes. I’m sure they all talk about me while I’m sleeping.

Anyway… since this is the first pattern, I’ve made it free for personal use, but please don’t use it commercially, or contact me first if you have a special circumstance.

For those of you who would like to print it, here’s the PDF version of the pattern:

If you’d like for this to be a simple washcloth, you can stop right here and bind off.

For the tea towel, forge ahead!


Knit 21 rows in stockinette stitch

Begin decreases:

K2tog, knit across row, k2tog

Purl across row

Repeat these two rows until 20 stitches remain


Form buttonhole* in the middle of the piece and knit to end of row

 *Buttonhole placement will vary for everyone, depending on the size of your button.

If you’ve never made a buttonhole before, there are some wonderful tutorials on Youtube (I used this one).

Knit 15 rows in stockinette stitch

Continue Decreases:

K2tog, knit across row, k2tog

Purl across row

Repeat these two rows until 2 stitches remain

Bind off


Sew your chosen button onto the end of the piece on the wrong side

Cut and sew your chosen fabric to the back of the piece. This step is optional, but it does make the piece look more finished and keeps the edges from curling.

Finally: Hang that tea towel in your kitchen and enjoy!
