For accessibility this pattern is available in my etsy shop and Payhip shop. The Teatime Washcloth is also available as part of the Cindwood Masterclass Series class “Using Needle Knit Patterns on your Knitting Loom, Part 2”. This little picture cloth uses textured knit and purl stitches to create dimension. The little bumps have a technical name: nupps. In needle knitting, nupps have a scary reputation, but they are very easy to work on a knitting loom. The pattern is written step-by-step, line by line. In the Easy to Read, large print version, a chart is included, but it is not necessary to knit the cloth. Each line of the chart is two rows, working in both directions. The chart is color-coded instead using symbols, for easier reference. In addition, a separate file formatted to be read clearly by screen reader software or any read aloud program is also included. This file does not include the chart. It has all the features of the Easy to Read version, and in addition, includes no abbreviations.

This pattern was originally published in “The Great Loom Knitting Gift Project” ebook, now out of print.
