On Thursday I posted up a photo of the present Kye made for his favourite resource hours teacher Mrs McCarthy, today I thought I’d share with you the little gift I knitted up for all of the teachers, secretary, special needs assistant and resource hours teachers including the very special Mrs McCarthy. Don’t panic it sounds like I’ve been knitting for a bus full when in fact there’s only 6 ladies in total as it’s a very small school.
I’m a regular reader of the blog Simply Notable, which is written by Carli and her mum. I spotted her post on The Almost Lost Washcloth Pattern and was delighted because it was just what I was looking for. Have a look at the blog here Simply Notable or you can find the pattern through the link on Ravelry here.
The Spiral shape is created by using short rows, much easier than it sounds, you knit 14 points in total and sew the cast on edge to the cast off edge and gather in the centre with a running stitch.
I made 8 of the washcloths in total, the first was more of a trial one to see if I liked them, the 8th was to use up the yarn and I can gift it to someone else later. The yarn I used was Rico Essentials Cotton Aran and I knitted two washcloths out of the one ball.
I bought some lovely handmade raspberry soap from our local health food shop Well & Good and wrapped the bars up with the washcloths and a bit of organza ribbon. Simples!
Nice, pretty and personal.
