Notes

I love using handmade washcloths, they feel so luxurious. I made this one for the store and think it makes a perfect quick gift.
Here is what I said about this pattern and project on my blog:
You can find similar patterns for free, but what I like about this one is the detailed instruction, both written and as a chart. The designer also puts a little spin on the circular cast-on which I liked, because it made the cast on easier. The crochet bind-off is a very nice finishing touch I did not find in other similar patterns. All in all I thought it to be worth the $5 you pay for this pattern (you can purchase it directly on ravelry or through your local yarn shop), especially considering that you will make lots of these for everyone on your list.
This Spa Cloth knits up in an hour or two and when paired with a bar of special soap this is a perfect last minute gift. You can make three washcloths out of one skein of the Trendsetter Lino.

I made several of these in different yarns:

  • Caramel : Trendsetter Lino. (store sample)
  • Turquoise: Blue Sky Skinny Cotton. ( for Joan)
  • White: Lily Sugar’n Cream Cotton. ( for Fee)
  • Lavender: Trendsetter Lino. (for Anne)
  • Yellow Multi : Lily Sugar’n Cream (for Barbara)
  • Off White: Trendsetter Lino. (for Heidi)
  • Gray: Trendsetter Lino ( for Maureen, October 2017)
