Apr 14 For the uninitiated, a washcloth might seem like an odd project to knit. However, they're so useful, are much more hardwearing than most washcloths you can buy, and there are so many different designs to knit, so you'll be entertained too! They make beautiful gifts and portable projects. Each of the ten blocks in Lisa's book features a geometric textured pattern - for example, squares, diamonds, chevrons or circles - is easy to knit, and can even be combined to make a lovely baby blanket, so the designs are very versatile. Washcloths are great little projects for popping in your handbag and working on when you get a spare half an hour - this is the perfect book for on-the-go knitters. * Knit Today *
