The Humble Facecloth – a free pattern

dear diary,

sometimes the simplest things can make us most happy don’t you agree? This can surely be said about items we make our self or hand-made items we receive as gifts. I have received many such hand-made items from friends and family that I treasure far more than expensive bought gifts. Maybe it is the tought and time that has gone into making something by hand. As you think hard and deep about matching colour and texture favourites of the recipient, a hand-made gift almost always fits in well with surroundings and taste. It’s not about how large something is, or how much time it takes to make, often a small thoughtful item can bring the biggest joy.

One such item I give to you today in way of a FREE pattern. I love using soft face cloths at the beginning of the day to wake up and to remove the days dirt in the evening, and just like hand made dish cloths, hand made face cloths are much lovelier to use and last doubly long as bought ones. The added bonus is that you can make them in your favourite colours or to match the bathroom decor.

For mine I have used different yarns to see which one I like best. I used Rowan Revive (natural), KB Cotton (lilac) and Rowan Handknit Cotton and must say that I like them all equally but for different purposes. The one knitted in Revive is really good to use in the shower for a little exfoliation, whilst the other two are really very soft, a joy to wake up to. They make great gifts, don’t use a lot of yarn nor take long to make. Try adding a lovely piece of soap and give instead of flowers next time and see how much it will be appreciated.
