Sorry I’m so long getting this pattern up, the weekend evaporated and things just got a bit crazy here, there was a skunk involved….

I was going to name these for Ophelia but for various reasons that wouldn’t make sense to anyone even if I explained, I named them after Jane who isn’t really a soothing creature but….anyway.

Miss Jane’s Soothing Face Cloths

Materials –

Any DK or worsted weight cotton, linen, bamboo or combination yarn that would make a nice washcloth, I used a cotton/bamboo blend yarn that I purchased here.
US size 5 knitting needles

Pattern –

CO 35 loosely.
Border-
Row 1 – K1, *P1, K1* repeat from * to the end
Row 2 – same as Row 1
Row 3 – same as Row 1

Stockingnette Section-
Note – the first and last 3 stitches of every row is K1, P1, K1 from now on.

Row 4 – K1, P1, K1, Knit to the last 3 stitches, K1, P1, K1
Row 5 – K1, P1, K1, Purl to the last 3 stitches, K1, P1, K1
Row 6 – same as Row 4
Row 7 – same as Row 5

Slip Stitch Ridge Section-
Row 8 – K1, P1, K1, P2, *slip 1 stitch purlwise with yarn to the back, P2* repeat from * until last 3 stitches, K1, P1, K1
Row 9 – K1, P1, K1, K2, *slip 1 stitch purlwise with yarn to the front, K2* repeat from * until last 3 stitches, K1, P1, K1

Repeat the Stockingnette Section and Slip Stitch Ridge Section until desired size ending on Row 7 of Stockingnette section and then repeat 3 Border rows.

Bind off loosely (I use this bind off method – K2, *transfer the 2 worked stitches to the left needle, and k2tog through the back, k1* repeat from *) and weave in loose ends.

Enjoy!

I’m getting some of these ready as gifts for Mother’s Day with some yummy Yardley English Lavender and Oatmeal & Almond soaps. Need to pop those in the mail tomorrow!
