Lattice Washcloth

Are you read for a pattern for a Knit Cotton Washcloth? This one has a lovely crochet edge to give it a little something special.

I’m not an overly materialistic person.  I do like my stuff, but I love experiences more.  Without a doubt, when considering things/experiences that I can’t have too many of, kisses from my husband and children are far and away the first thing on that list, followed by travels to new places.  However, there are some other things I can never have too many of (in no particular order):

Pillows on my bed

Fresh tomatoes

Organic blueberries

Fresh flowers on my kitchen table

Hot out of the oven chocolate chip cookies with cold milk


DisneyWorld vacations

Family photos

Fresh squeezed lemonade on a hot day

Great books

Pretty cloth napkins and tablecloths

If washcloths are on your list too, you are in luck today!  I’m still entertaining myself knitting and crocheting washcloths for myself and for gifts.  I get bored doing the same ones over and over, so I keep trying out new knit cotton washcloth patterns. For this pattern, I knit the Woven Lattice Cable Stitch for the base of the washcloth and edged it with a simple double crochet stitch.   Lattice Washcloth

    Thanks for the great patterns. I like experiences better than most things but love hand
    knits, especially washcloths, I think knitting the cable spa cloth will be an experience, hopefully a good one.

      Good Morning Ilka…it all comes down to having the time, doesn’t it?! I know how that is. I’d love to make some more too…but just haven’t had the time lately. So glad to see you’re posting more gluten free recipes! My daughter and I will hopefully get a lot of baking in this weekend.
