My name is Louisa and I am a textile artist specialising in knitting. I sell my original knitting patterns in DK yarn. There are patterns for cakes, bags, toys and cloths, including my bestselling cupcake range. I always write with the ease of the knitter in mind, with minimal seaming and clear instructions.
I come from a creative family of spinners, weavers, carpenters and knitters. My mother taught me to knit when I was very young and I have never stopped. My mother and aunts were all wonderful knitters and crocheters and always gave me plenty of inspiration. My uncle used to design and build spinning and weaving equipment, in particular the Barnett Drum Carder which is still considered the gold standard in hand carding machines in the UK. Although now retired, he recently made me some giant double pins for my extreme knitting project. I am very happy to be carrying on the family handcrafting tradition using the tools that he has made.

This is a knitting pattern for our novelty cotton cloth shaped like a ray fish.
The Rayfishcloth is a dishcloth, or a washcloth, or a facecloth. Equally at home in the kitchen or bathroom, the Rayfishcloth will happily swim in the water and wash things.
Knitted using 2 strands of DK cotton yarn, from tail to nose, no sewing is needed. Just knit the body and pick up and knit 3 stitches for the tail. The body is worked in garter stitch, so it's a nice, easy, quick knit.
Use 100% cotton for best results, and your cloth will be soft, absorbent, luxurious and long-lasting.
This pattern is for personal and charity use only. Not for resale.
