If one can have a Menger Sponge, then why not a Menger Washcloth to complete the set? Yes, this pattern appeals to my inner geek as well as the part of me that loves a play on words. For more info on the Menger Sponge Fractal, check out the Wikipedia entry.
You will need approximately 70 yards or so of worsted weight cotton (I used Lion Brand Kitchen Cotton) and size 7 needles.
Cast on 37 stitches and follow the chart for 54 rows. Cast off. For a larger/complete version of the chart, go here.
The finished washcloth should be about 8 inches square. The texture variations on the washcloth/dishcloth make for an efficient cleaning surface, and plus the pattern looks good on both sides!
The pattern page on Ravelry is here.
Oh, and in case you were curious, the soap came from here: GeekSoap.net
