I’m a sucker for funny commercials, and for that matter, tear-jerker commercials. The one of the male nurse who sings the Name Game song with his patient has been out for years, but gives me goosebumps and brings tears to my eyes every time.
And the Geico commercial with the camel asking ‘Guess what day it is?’ is one that now has a permanent place in the lexicon of our country. So, with homage to the Geico Camel…’Guess what day it is?”…It’s ‘A New Knitted Washcloth Pattern’ Day!!
This pattern is the latest of four knit & crochet washcloths that I’ve posted, and my second favorite after the Knot Another Washcloth pattern. Here’s the rundown of all the other washcloths:
This latest pattern uses the daisy stitch, which to me is an easier version of the lotus flower stitch. If you’ve never done these stitches, the key is not to knit too tightly.
I ‘produced’ the following video because you know what they say, a picture is worth a thousand words. Bear in mind, I ‘produced’ this video with my iphone attached by a large binder clip to my mini tripod, so please be gentle in your judgement.
You can hear the tightness of the stitches…don’t let that trouble you. While they are tight-ish, the video makes it sounds worse than it is. Once you get in the groove, it is really an easy pattern.
These really knit up pretty quickly. If you get started, you could make quite a gift stash for the holidays!
You could easily put together a little basket with your washcloths, maybe some lovely soap or other spa items. I’m going to be putting together some ‘packages’ for some friends and family and have included some of my finds for your convenience.
These are affiliate links and I will earn a small commission off of the sale of these products, but the price you are charged is not affected. For my full disclosure policy, see here.
And I’m absolutely in love with this copper wire basket! Copper with those white washcloths and the beautifully colored soap wrapping?…bliss!
This silver basket combination is so soothing and spa-like.
And for a more ‘natural look’, a seagrass basket with the almond soap bar would be lovely.
However you decide to ‘gift’ your washcloths, I know the recipient will be thrilled. Pin the following image so that you can refer back to this page for all the patterns for your future washcloth knitting projects!
