Leaf Face or Dish Cloths

from Stefanie Japel Knits
(6) Name: 'Knitting : Leaf Face or Dish Cloths
Leaf Face or Dish Cloths

Basic Skills Necessary:

  • Knitting, Purling, Yarn overs, Decreases

Pattern Description:

These cloths are great gifts, and can be presented as
face cloths, dish cloths, little hotpads, trivets, cloths to
use for baby, any number of uses. Their size will depend
on the weight (or WPI) of the yarn that you have made,
and on the size of needle that you have chosen to use.
Knit them from white yarn, dyed yarn, or dye them after
knitting. Attach one of our UPcycled Gift hang tags to
let the recipient know how much you care!


This is a gaugeless project. No
matter what size of yarn you have
made, this project will look great.
The yardage that you'll need will
vary depending on the size of the
finished project, the size of
needles that you choose, and the
diameter of your yarn.


  • Yarn: Use any of your Upcycled Tshirt yarns...any diameter, any color. This wrap looks best if you use similar colors of yarn, or if you can, all one color. Needle: I used anywhere from a set of 14" US 11 to US 17 straight needles for my projects.
  • Needle size will be determined by your yarn and by your swatches. I recommend that you swatch on several needle sizes and compare the swatches to see which produces the fabric that you like best.
