Skill Level: Easy

Stitch this conifer cleaning cloth for the kitchen or bath (and it sits pretty as a trivet). With a little creative embroidery, it could be trimmed with a few decorations too! Worked in mosaic garter stitch, just one strand works every two rows while the other strand rests at the edge. Gauge and dimensions are provided in a light worsted weight yarn. Choose colors that contrast well. Try your camera’s “black & white” setting to look at your yarns in grayscale and check the contrast between your selection(s). The pattern provides full written instructions with (optional) positive and negative charts for making useful household linens and gifts!
