Sampler Spa Cloths

Gift baskets anyone?

The other day, my hair stylist asked if I could make her some washcloths. She wanted to put gift baskets together with spa items for a few of her friends for Christmas presents. And when I sat down to design them, I couldn’t decide on just one stitch. There were so many that were just lovely, but I managed to narrow it down to three that I really loved. That’s when I decided that I would be making Sampler Spa Cloths!

Even if you’re not interested in making gift baskets, you can use these soft and absorbent cloths in your own kitchen or bath. Customize them to match your decor!

They also work up quickly and easily, which is great if you need last minute gift items! Just wrap them up in twine or a colorful ribbon and you’re all set. People will appreciate your thoughtfulness and creativity!

So when I made the one set of three cloths, I used almost a full skein of the main color and maybe a third of the second corresponding color. You will definitely need at least two skeins. I used the I Love This Cotton! that I purchased from Hobby Lobby (I love their color selection), but you can use any size 4 medium weight cotton yarn.
