I wanted to make something special for my good friend Kim who came to visit me here in Greece. She raved about the handknit cotton washcloths in the guest bathroom and vowed to take up knitting herself. (She reports that her lessons are going well and she’s already completed a pink barbie blanket. So far, so good!) Kim is great – the kind of person who laughs easily and spreads sunshine wherever she goes. I thought she should have some handknit washcloths of her own, but I wanted them to be different - fun enough for Kim.
I think Flower Power Washcloths are perfect for her. She can scrub her face with spring daisies and hang cool green Leaf Washcloths in the shower. The leaf washcloth pattern has two different kinds of leaves. You can make a garter stitch leaf:
or a stockinette stitch leaf:
or one of each! They’re so fun to make – I’ll whip up dozens before I’m through.
You inspired me, Kimmie Mou! Flower Power! xxxooo
