Knot Another Washcloth
I really enjoyed the quick knit of my last washcloth. After knitting up a couple of them, I was ready for another hand knit washcloth pattern. I like the Chinese Wave Pattern for the loft it creates. It has a thickness to it that you just don’t get with a garter stitch. In addition to the texture, it is a very pretty pattern. I see diamonds in the pattern more than waves, but that’s just me.
My daughter wants to use these in her bathroom, so I added a crochet picot edge, which really upped the charm of the washcloth. I can also see knitting up a bunch of these and using them as gifts, with some soap or bubble bath. They really have a ‘spa’ look and feel to them.
The pattern is really relatively easy, but you do need to pay attention to what row you need to start. The slipped stitch makes the stitch twist, so if you have to rip out a row, it makes it more difficult to get the twist right and you’ll notice a slight difference in that row.
