I forget the name of the yarn I used. It's the cotton at the end of the Aisles everyone uses for dish cloths! I only cast on 38 with a 7 needle and it was still too big for me. I knit it pretty loose and didn't think to measure it until it was wet. Oops. After that...it measured 9.5". I personally don't like my dish cloths to be that big. I also didn't knit it square.
