Oh my! We’re nearing the end of Series 1 of my washcloth patterns. Each and every one of these patterns has been designed to allow you to practice a new stitch or stitch design while creating something useful. If you’ve purchased the pdfs of them as well then you will also have instructions for how to use the stitches to create something else so that you can become your own designer.
Once this series is complete I will be putting together an ebook with even more detailed instructions that you will be able to purchase. And the next series will have the focus on the border so that you can practice different borders and see what they look like before adding them to your own blanket or design!
So let’s get into this month’s washcloth. I am in love with this one. Maybe it’s the colour, or maybe it’s the texture, but I am truly in love with this one! As always I have used knitpicks dishie yarn and a 5.5mm hook.
This washcloth uses the wattle stitch, which (in US terms) is a single crochet, chain and double crochet worked into the chain space of the wattle stitch of the row below.
Here goes! These instructions are in US terms.
