Hugs & Kisses
As a reminder each month in 2022 I will be releasing a different washcloth pattern featuring fun design elements to try, as well as colors that represent the mood of the month.
These projects check so many boxes:
Small & portable
Super interesting! The pattern & colors will change each month
Easy way to learn or improve a skill on a small scale like lace or cables
Great palette cleanser between larger more complicated patterns or projects
Practical & versatile; at the end of the year, you will have 12 or more washcloths that can be used from the bathroom to the kitchen and everywhere in between.
They make great gifts!
February Washcloth: Hugs & Kisses
For February I chose a bold bright pink yarn in a solid to highlight the stitches & paired it with a variegated pink to showcase the pattern on a non-solid yarn.
I chose to feature the XOXO cable pattern in three columns on a background of reverse stockinette stitch. Even if Valentine's Day is not your thing, the Hugs & Kisses pattern is still a good reminder that we could all use a little more hugs & kisses in our life!
Knitting cables can seem challenging but this pattern is a super simple way to learn how to knit them. Not only that, it's a great way to practice knitting without a cable needle. Easy enough for a beginner but equally challenging for a seasoned knitter.
US 8 (5mm) needles
Lily Sugar & Cream 100 % cotton yarn Hot Pink
Premier Home Cotton Flamingo Splash
1 skein for each color, or 2 skeins of the same color will make 3 washcloths
~80 yards needed for one washcloth
