Japanese Garden, which was a fave pattern on Craftsy, lives on in this set!
These three patterns are all "plant-based", and comprised of a beginner, intermediate and a more advanced pattern. Charts and basic written instructions provided.
Lotus is simple - knit and purl! But soooo groovy. Squash Blossom is a bit more involved, with a lovely lace/cable combo, and Japanese Garden involves a beautiful "bamboo" stitch pattern that will take you through lots of twists and cables.
These were originally designed for a specific KnitPicks yarn - the yarn, however, was discontinued, and their IDP program grew to such massive proportions I began offering these patterns elsewhere as well (per their agreement). ENJOY! Not your basic "washcloth", at all, these make an AMAZING gift with a great bar of soap :)
none necessary - you can block to an 8x8 square - if you knit loose, use US7 needles, and block UP to an 8x8 square if making a set so they all wind up the same size (and especially with Lotus, you'll want to use smaller needles).
These also look FANTASTIC in Hemp4Knitting's DK weight (i used US7 needles) and make a phenomenal gift when knit with this - really scrubby, really great pattern definition, and bundled with a great bar of all natural soap, looks all boutiquey :)
