Knitted cotton face cloths.
I often get make up on my face cloths, so these are too pretty to spoil with black streaks, but they are lovely and soft.
The mauve one was knitted from the corner.
Here is the pattern I did.
Cast on 4 stitches
Row 1. k 2, yon, k2 (5 sts)
Row 2. K
Row 3. K2, yon, K1, yon, k2 (7sts)
Row 4. K
Row 5 K2.yon,k3, yon,k2 (9sts)
Row 6 K
Carry on like this increasing 2 sts on each row until you have knitted as much as you want.
Then reverse the process.
Knit 2 yon sl 1, k1. p sl s o, k to last 4 stitches cast off 2 and yon k2
next row k3 cast off 1 (by slipping a st and passing it over the next k st) k to last 5 sts,
cast off 2 and knit 3
Till you only have 4 stitches left.
I did a row of hd crochet and then a picot stitch in two colours
The other two are knitted in waffle stitch
Cast on 53
K first 3 rows in seed stitch
Row 1 seed stitch 3, then k to last three seed st 3
Row 2. Seed stitch 3, p to last 3 stitches, seed stitch 3
Row 3. Seed stitch 3, p2, k1, repeat to last 3, seed stitch 3
Row 4. Seed st 3, k2, p1, repeat to last 3, seed stitch 3
These 4 rows form the pattern.
Knit in pattern as much as you want then finish with 3 rows of seed stitch.
A pretty and easy pattern
I used Dk cotton and size 8 needles (Old measurement I don't know the new)
( Seed st is k1, p1, k1, p1 across row, then next row p1, k1, p1 and so on)
And some cross stitch progress.
My Welcome Cat.
I have got to the cat and all the colour changes are not proving easy, but I like this so shall carry on
And some progress on my Chatelaine.
Convent's Herbal Garden
I will finish this altho' some of the speciality stitches needed a practice before I attempted them on the fabric, but I thought this is mine so what I do will be fine!
I have decided this is a more winter stitching project so it will be put in the bottom of my basket till the summer is over!
Happy Days, the sun has been glorious here the last few days and we have sat in the garden for breakfast. This morning we were serenaded by a wren, such a tiny little bird but such a sweet song.
We watched the blue tits flying to and fro so we guess the eggs have hatched and the little ones are keeping them busy. They can lay between 7 and 15 eggs!! Cor!! Fancy having 15 kids all at a time !!LOL
Keep calm and keep crafting, and pop a prayer in between those stitches!
