Crystal Palace Cotton Chenille knits up into a soft, squishy fabric, ideal for washcloths and towels. The pattern for the Reverse-Bloom Flower Washcloth is in Melanie Falick’s Weekend Knitting and is also available online. Each facecloth requires just one skein, so you can mix and match colors as you like. Knitting Daily also has a nice pattern for a Seafoam Towel and coordinating washcloth.
For an added treat, package your gift with some special soap or a tin of Knitter’s Little Helper Hand Balm from Blue Sky Alpacas. Sadly, the hand balm has been discontinued, so be sure to pick up a few when you come to the shop for your next project. Mother’s Day is May 9, so get started on your gift knitting today!
