Bring a little bit of knitting art into your kitchen, bath, or dining entertainment. Make this practical, small piece of flower-inspired “art” that you can use as a facecloth (pictured here in a boudoir gift basket), tabletop coaster/doily, or stylish kitchen dishcloth.

To make a larger dishcloth (8” - 10”), you can substitute worsted weight cotton yarn (e.g. Peaches & Crème is a popular choice) and a size or two larger needles. Allow that you will also need some more yarn. You will probably be able to get 2 - 3 cloths out of one 70g ball of yarn.

Included in the Bonus Collection of the PatternChest Knit Better Bundle. This offer ends June 1, 2020
