Extra Large Spa Cloth - Free Pattern

I began working with cotton yarn a couple years ago and really loved the look and feel of it. I especially love Peaches N Creme to work with.

I had followed quite a few patterns to create washcloths and never found one that was just right for me. In the meantime, I had opened my shoppe and wanted to sell washcloths in it, and wanted to create one that was all mine, (or at least I haven't seen any like it) I also wanted to make one that worked up pretty quickly, and was larger than the typical cloth I was seeing. Thus, the Extra Large Spa Cloth was born.

Item description: These cotton washcloths measure roughly 9"x10" and are a wonderful addition to any beauty regime. They are super absorbent, great exfoliaters, all the while being very gentle. The pattern I designed gives a great texture on both sides...and makes the cloth look really cool! You can choose to use these as washcloths or dishcloths...I don't mind.

  4. I am making these for my women's fitness bootcamp. I will fold them and wrap them around a water bottle and then tie a satin ribbon around that. I wrote a little poem to go on the tag:

    "I would be all sweaty if I didn't have my spa cloth and water already"

    :) thanks for the wonderful pattern!
