Spa Day


Create a little spa day for yourself or someone special with this quad of soft cotton facecloths. Wrap them with a bar of handmade soap or face wash for a lovely gift. (This is a great project for leftovers with any plant-based yarn: linen, hemp, cotton, or blends.)

Note: Always check for colorfastness when using two colors in the same project. Knit a small swatch with both colors and wet block the swatch before you begin.

One size

DK | Appalachian Baby | 100% Organic Cotton 194 yards/177 meters in 85g | Two skeins in contrasting colors

  • Color A: Dark Grey (or your favorite med/dark color)
  • Color B: Cream (or your favorite lighter contrast color)

— OR —

DK | Knit Picks Cotlin DK | 70% Cotton, 30% Linen | 123 yards/ 112 meters in 50g | Two skeins in contrasting colors (since these are smaller size balls than the Appalachian Baby, you may need a little extra yarn if you want to knit more than three cloths)

Note: You should have enough to knit one of each variation using just the two balls of yarn, with enough yarn leftover to repeat one or two of your favorites.
