For years and years I’ve tried all sorts of face-cleansers. No matter what, I kept experiencing dry skin, or greasy skin, or had trouble with zits. Until I switched to the Pure Face Glove (no, I’m not getting paid for this). Just a microfibre washcloth and water. It works perfectly, I’ve never had any trouble with my skin again!
So since I switched to all-natural I was fascinated by the knitted washcloth I saw in an older edition of Mollie Makes. It’s something you can finish in a couple of hours, with leftover yarn from another project. A great stashbuster!
The pattern by Meredith Crawford is so easy. Funnily enough though, my washcloth looked quite different from the photos in Mollie Makes. But I guess as long as you end up with a textured square cloth in cotton yarn, it doesn’t matter. I used Lammy Yarn Florida in a sand-color, and needle-size 4 mm. Since my washcloth turned out differently, I guess I did something different than the original pattern.
Here’s what I did for this Work in Progress Wednesday: Cast on 31 stitches and knit 6 rows in garter stitch. Then repeat these three rows: knit one row // knit 4 stitches, purl all stitches but the last 4, knit 4 stitches // knit 5 stitches, repeat [purl 1, knit 1] till the last 4 stitches, knit 4 stitches. When your piece is almost squared, finish with 6 rows of garter stitch and cast off.
