Lock Down like a BOSS. Stay Home. Protect Healthcare Workers. And Each Other.

“Normally” I teach hospital staff to knit twice a week as part of a wellness initiative. For obvious reasons (ahem, pandemic), the program is on hold. But when they asked if I could develop knitting “care packages” for stressed out staff, my answer was HECK YES!

The Halton Spa Cloth Trio is a set of three simple squares to knit your worries away…and then wash your worries away!

If you can cast on, knit, and bind off, you can make a Garter Stitch spa cloth. If you can purl, you can make all three!

1 skein of luxurious Cascade Ultra Pima Cotton + 1 pair of 4 mm (US 6) knitting needles yields three--or more--approx. 6.75” (17 cm) square spa cloths.

NOTE: This pattern was for newbies, lol, so my yardage recommendations were extremely generous, to ensure anyone knitting wildly off gauge--or tossing out failed first attempts--would have enough yarn for all three spa cloths. Personally, I got four spa cloths from skein with yarn to spare.
