It’s getting harder to find new washcloth patterns that I like. There are a lot of really creative washcloths to be found on the web, but I tend to prefer the square or rectangular styles instead of fruit or vegetable shapes. Recently I saw a video produce by knitpurlhunter.com that looked interesting.
The stitch pattern is called the Closed Star Stitch and looks similar to another one that I tried and failed at producing. This pattern is a four-row repeat and uses two contrasting yarn colors.
I used size 7 circular needle and Peaches & Crème 100% cotton yarn. The pattern is a multiple of three stitches +2 so I cast on 38 stitches which is yielding a width of just slightly over 8”.
I really like the look of the stars.
But I also like the pattern that is created on the reverse side. It looks like cross stitch.
I’m not sure which side I like best.
I'm linked up with Patchwork Times, On The Needles.
Thanks for stopping by. Please feel free to share your thoughts and ideas. Happy Knitting,
